parentheses in the body of your work (Larus 2020, page) or in parenthesis in the bibliography (Larus 2020, page) (“Greening” China 2021, page).
The following is a list of the documentary and report:

This report is available for download, and you must cite the specific page.
What are the political and economic barriers to conserving China’s environment, according to the video, the text, and the report?
Is technology beneficial to or harmful to China’s environment? Please support your answer with two specific examples (one positive, one negative, a total of two examples) from the text, report, and video. There will be some overlap across the sources in terms of the technologies they want to talk about. As a result, a more thorough examination of each of the two examples would include as many sources as feasible. [Please notice that each source does not require two examples.]
What effect do environmental issues have on the disparity in living standards between rural and urban China? Please support your answer with the video and the text.
Use 12-point type and double-space your paper with 1 inch margins.
How to Hand in Your Paper
Your paper should be uploaded to Canvas as a Word document. To get a score on this assignment, you must submit the Academic Integrity note if you haven’t previously done so.
This paper is due at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20th. Students are responsible for ensuring that their paper is uploaded correctly and in a timely manner (Word doc or docx). Late papers will be docked 12 points every day (including weekend
days). Students are also in charge of backing up their own work.
Each time you quote from the text, make sure to cite it. After the punctuation mark, cite the author and page number in (Larus 2020, p. 12).
Because you must refer to a specific point in the text, you should not mention more than 1-2 pages at a time in any one reference. For instance, (Larus 2020, 42-43) is OK, while (Larus 2020, 42-52) is not.
You can never have too many references to the book or film, but failing to correctly cite the content will significantly lower your score.
You must use a direct quote if you use the author’s precise words. This should only happen in the case of brief sections of 1-2 sentences. Ex:
For Mao, it was not only a question of adapting Marxism, but sinicizing itgiving it Chinese traits by enhancing it with components drawn from China’s experience, writes Elizabeth Larus. (Page 48 of Larus 2020).
You must still mention the relevant passage in the text if you paraphrase (restate the author’s point in your own words)
For example, Elizabeth Larus explains how Mao combined Marxism with aspects of Chinese culture. (Larus, p. 48, 2020)
Explain the precise scene in which the Deputy Minister of the Environmental Protection Administration is interrogated and identify the frame when quoting information from the film (Shifting Nature, 2007, 10:12).
All papers will be examined for correct citation and p-l-a-g-i-a-r-i-s-m (p-l-a-g-i-a-r-i-s-m = p-l-a-g-i-a-r-i-s Students who do not correctly cite the sources they use can expect to lose at least half of their mark. Students who plagiarize a paper (specified in the curriculum) will receive a failing grade in the course.
