Classifications—Writing about Categories:
Requirements and Planning Guide
This guide contains requirements for this assignment and a planning process for thinking about key details of this assignment:
- Planning process
For this writing project, you write about how something can be divided into a set of categories. Please write a categorization-type classification of four or more paragraphs. (If you prefer to write the other type of classification, get in touch with your instructor.)
Here are the suggestions for this classification project:
- Select a term that can be divided into categories.
- In the introduction to this extended classification, provide a formal sentence definition of the term you are discussing. In the introduction, identify the basis of classification you are using and provide an overview of the categories you'll discuss.
- If possible, discuss each category in a separate paragraph.
- For the paragraphs in which you discuss an individual category, start by defining that category and then use the appropriate the "sources" of definition to discuss that category.
- As you discuss the categories, compare and contrast them.
- Be sure to define any potentially unfamiliar terms that occur in this classification.
- Use headings and subheadings to mark off the different sections of this classification—in particular, for each paragraph on a separate category.
- As with all writing projects in this course, be sure to use the standard of good writing on this classification.
- Name the file containing your classification with same identifying part of your name followed by _class.doc or .odt or whatever extension your software uses. For example, davidmc_class.doc.
Note: To be safe, keep a safe copy of this and all other assignments. Expect to receive confirmation from your instructor that your e-mail attachments have been received. If you don't receive e-mail confirmation in 3 or 4 days, get in touch with your instructor.
Use this planner to define the key details for your classification. When you are through, you can e-mail this planning information to yourself (and to your instructor, if you wish).
