Use the following many times, (Hill, 2013, p.xx). Cite all sources and arrangeheadings according to the Publication Manual of the American PsychologicalAssociation, 6th Edition (APA style).  Only sources withidentifiable authors are acceptable. That means a person’s name has to be attached to the article!

SUMMARYHowdo you plan to ensure a long-term cooperative relationship with your host country?  10   Total 100WRITTENREPORT GRADING RUBRICA (90-100)Thepaper is well organized both overall and at the paragraph level. Sentences aresmooth and carefully crafted. There are virtually no errors in punctuation orspelling, grammar or usage. Words are chosen with precision. Informal language(i.e., slang) or dialect is used only when appropriate. The paper avoidstriteness and unwarranted generalization: the language is fresh and vivid. Thepaper is tight, not wordy. The ideas show a thorough understanding of the workand are often insightful; the ideas are developed and supported. The ideasilluminate the work as a whole and do not contradict other parts of the work oroverlook parts, which are relevant to the topic. The writer keeps his/heraudience in mind and, as a consequence, the paper engages and interests thereader. Citations of authors and literature in the field are abundant, addinsight, and clarify ideas stated.B (80-89)Thepaper is well-organized, but the paragraph structure may sometimes bedisjointed. The paper may have a few awkward passages and a few errors inpunctuation, spelling, grammar or usage. The language may at times be toogeneral; it may lack the freshness or precision of the “A” paper. Butnone of these errors is glaring or highly distracting. The ideas are worthwhileand show good understanding of the work; they are sometimes insightful,generally well developed, and well supported. The ideas help illuminate thework as a whole and contradict or overlook no major aspects. While the paper isalways clear and thus suggests that the writer had his/her audience in mind ina general way, the style or presentation of the ideas does not always engage orinterest the reader. Citations of authors and literature in the field addclarity to the ideas stated. C (70-79)Thepaper is basically well-organized, though individual paragraphs may bedisunited or misplaced. Generally, however, the paper shows that the writer hasfollowed a logical plan. The writing is competent, but often wordy, overlygeneral, imprecise, or trite. Sentences may at times be awkwardly constructed,but their meaning is clear. Grammar, punctuation, spelling, and usage are nothighly distracting, but there may be some errors. The ideas are generallyworthwhile, but not very insightful; development and support are present butsometimes less than adequate. The ideas illuminate parts of the work, but notthe whole; no major aspects of the work are contradicted or entirelydisregarded. While the writing is usually competent, the writer does little tointerest or engage the reader in what he/she has to say. Citations of a thesisand literature in the field add limited clarity or misrepresent the ideas stated.D (60-69)Thepaper is poorly organized, though there is a recognizable thesis. Somesentences may be so confused that their meaning does not clearly emerge. Wordsmay be imprecise, incorrect, trite or vague. In general, however, the paper isunderstandable. Ideas are generally superficial and weakly developed orsupported, although some development and support are present. Obvious aspectsof the work have been overlooked or disregarded; some significant facts may beincorrect. Audience “engagement” cannot occur, although the writermay have attempted to elicit it, because of the serious deficiencies alreadynoted. Citations are limited or missing.F (0-59)The paper lacks a clear thesis; the languageor sentence structure is so muddled as to be unclear in several spots; or theerrors in punctuation, spelling, grammar, and usage are highly distracting. Theideas are superficial and show no real understanding of the work beyond,perhaps, plots; important facts are incorrect. The paper relies on generalizationswith little or no development or support. The paper blatantly overlooks,disregards, or contradicts important aspects of the work. Under any of theseconditions audience “engagement” is impossible.
