Additional Instructions and InformationThe most important thing for you to do in your paper is to present an argument as a specific answer to the question given above. Your paper must also focus on the primary source texts. This means that you should read each document carefully, think about it, and form your own point of view about the topic. Once you have your argument, you will want to organize your essay as follows: an introduction, supporting or body paragraphs, and a conclusion. In the introduction be sure to clearly state your thesis statement. The thesis statement clearly states your argument and is the central idea that organizes the rest of your essay. In the supporting or body paragraphs you will prove your thesis statement and support your argument with evidence. Be sure to start each paragraph with a topic sentence that introduces the main point of the paragraph. Clearly explain to the reader how the evidence you provide supports your argument.
All evidence you use in your paper, whether directly quoted or paraphrased, must be cited properly. For this assignment, please use the Chicago Style for citing sources. Do not use any outside sources (encyclopedias, internet); this assignment assesses your critical thinking and writing skills. Evidence should be based on course material only, especially primary sources.
Please review the college’s policies on Academic Honesty summarized on the course syllabus and college catalog. Any act of plagiarism, collusion, or cheating will be acted upon according to the policies of the college. Please see the instructor if you have any questions.
