It should be a well-written four to five page report and must contain a four outside sources besides the class texts (use only four credible sources, i.e. reputable online journal, books, or other periodical) to enlarge your scope of knowledge on the subject. You will provide an objective discussion; therefore, remain in 3rd person point-of-view. Refrain from using any of the following: 1st person, “I”, “me”, “we”, “our”, “us” or the informal 2nd person, “you” or “your.” Times Roman 12-font, double-spaced paper should have a heading (named, date, assignment number) and a title. Your own title at the top of the page should not be underlined or inside of quotation marks. Essays should include an introductory paragraph that provides brief background on the works/authors to be discussed. It should also include a clearly worded thesis statement at the end of the introduction. The thesis should be in the form of a claim that you will argue about the works/authors in the paper.
The body paragraphs should argue your thesis clearly and effectively by making claims and providing support from the two selected works, as well as the four research sources. Textual support is required utilizing MLA format with page numbers in parentheses and a works cited page. The paper is not a summary of the essays. Use transitions when switching between authors/works in your discussion.
Brief direct quotations (i.e. less than three lines) should appear in quotation marks (“ “). Long direct quotations (i.e. longer than four lines) should appear as “block quotes.” All text of block quotes is to be indented one inch from the left margin (with no extra indentation for the first word). Block quotes do not appear in quotation marks.
