Hi everyone,

I am sure you are all working hard on your Group Papers (due Tuesday!). Â As you know the paper is worth 35 points, and I wanted to give you some idea of how these points will be assigned (this list of grading criteria will be developed into a more formal rubric in future semesters). Â I will be filling out the sheet below for each paper submitted. Â Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best,

Prof. Reitz
