"Dig Deeper" (DD) assignments

I apologize for the confusion in the syllabus regarding the DD assignments. Here are the corrected instructions which should clarify the confusion. I've also corrected the instructions on the syllabus and posted the corrected syllabus.

“Dig Deeper� (DD) Assignment (600 word limit) = 200 points
Complete one of the “Dig Deeper� (see Lincoln Steffens excerpt on “digging deeper�) assignment from the seven described in the “Schedule of Classes and Assignments, � on January 22, January 27, February 17, February 26, March 10, April 7, April 28, April 30, May 7.

1. Answer the specific questions about the DD assignment you choose to complete.
2. Submit your DD assignment before class begins on the day the assignment appears on the "Schedule of Classes and Assignments." You can submit your essay by email attachment as long as your TA receives it before class begins on the date it’s due.
3. Include the following information at the top of the assignment: (1) DD; (2) date; (c) your name.

There’s no credit for cutting and pasting, except for brief specific quotes and/or graphics. You can earn bonus points for this assignment, if it demonstrates special quality and depth of detail and analysis; is logically presented; and written in simple, clear, direct prose. The number of bonus points, if any, is totally within your TA’s discretion.
