Prejudice, Discrimination, Power, and Privilege
A successful final draft of any paper should be the product of brainstorming, outlining, and writing multiple drafts. University of the Rockies Writing Center is a great service for all students, offering 24/7 live chat support and a 24 hour feedback turnaround for papers and discussion posts. It is required that you submit a draft for the Writing Center to review in addition to continuing to leverage Grammarly and TurnItIn to support producing your paper. You should submit your work to the Writing Center for review and use the Grammarly program and TurnItIn by Week 4, Day 3 at the latest so that you will have time to get feedback and revise your draft accordingly before submitting it to Waypoint on Day 7. In Week 5, you will be asked to reflect upon your experience with the Writing Center in your journal.
This week you will continue to work on the topic of choice to continue to progress toward your Cultural Perspectives final paper.
