For this assignment, you will explain how a habit you have (or have had) follows the habit loop as explained by Charles Duhigg in Chapter 1-3 of his book The Power of Habit and come up with a plan to change this habit (or explain how you have already changed it) based on Duhigg’s theories of habit change. In order to explain your habit and connect it to Duhigg’s discussion of habits, you will have to explain a few concepts to your readers. Be sure to think about the various aspects of habit formation described by Duhigg, including the habit loop, craving, the Golden Rule of habit change, and the role of belief in habit change (introduction) What your habit is as well as how you plan to change it (thesis) Explain your habit in great detail. Connect it to the habit loop and how your habit follows this loop (body paragraph 1) The role of craving in habit creation in general and in your habit specifically (body paragraph 2) The Golden Rule of habit change and how you might change your habit according to this rule and the role of belief in habit change and how you might incorporate this concept into your plan to change your habit (body paragraph 3) Re-state main points, drive home why it’s important to learn about habits, and if/how you plan to change yours. Leave the reader with some final thoughts or things to ponder (conclusion) You should write your essay for people who are NOT in this class and who are NOT familiar with Duhigg’s book. This means you’ll need to spend some time summarizing key ideas, defining any terms that might be unfamiliar, and choosing short quotations from the text to help your reader get a sense of what the author is talking about This essay is not just about explaining concepts; it requires you to apply Duhigg’s theories to your own personal habit. This means you must analyze your habit and make a plan for change (or analyze a past habit and discuss the changes you have already made) by applying the information you learned about habits from Duhigg. A few things to remember: You should also include details, examples, and quotations from the readings to help you develop your analysis Talk about complexities – for example, feel free to disagree with Duhigg’s claims about habits, but be sure to fully explain your argument Must be MLA formatted You should do a little outside research (Google is your best friend here) and look up what other people say about habits and habit change Requirements to be eligible for an A or B paper: 4 – 4 ½ pages A thesis which states your habit as well as a plan to fix or change it MLA formatted and includes direct quotes from at least 2 sources Includes a Works Cited page which has at least 2 sources (one source needs to be The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg as well as one outside source – sources such as Wikipedia, eNotes, SparkNotes, etc are not accepted. An outside source means a source that I did not supply to you for this class) Is relatively free of basic grammar and spelling errors Requirements to be eligible for a C paper: 3 ½ – almost 4 pages A thesis which states your habit as well as a plan to fix or change it MLA formatted includes a direct quote from at least 1 source Includes a Works Cited page which has at least one source (The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg) Has some basic grammar and spelling errors An essay that is submitted with less than 3 pages, does not include quotes, and does not include a Works Cited page with The Power of Habit will not receive a passing grade.
