Use the below question and write an essay of 8-10 pages. Make sure to use correct citations (Chicago Manual of Style citation method). Cite all ideas, whether quotes or paraphrases, you get from journals and books (do not use Internet resources). Materials derived from the UMUC library computer database for scholarly articles are not Internet resources, thus they are acceptable. You should use JSTOR and EbscoHost for most of your scholarly sources in addition to using primary sources from outside of class. Remember, to provide clear grammar/style rules in addition to proper footnote formatting.This essay requires the use of a minimum of 10 scholarly sources as references. I will not accept any essays with Internet sources, so no websites. Do not use encyclopedias or dictionaries.
Your paper must have a clear thesis (answer to the question) and a clear method (how you are answering the question) in the last sentence of the introduction. It must utilize analysis based on scholarly evidence to prove the thesis. The paper must be typed, in Word (no PDFs), double-spaced with one-inch margins, and no cover page. Do not use more than three quotes and none should be longer than three lines. Follow this rule closely.
I will base your grade on the essay’s clarity (an explicit thesis and method are critical), logic, effectiveness of argumentation, grammar/style/correct citation format (assimilate the writing guide and footnote guide on LEO), the use of at least five sources not from class in addition to class sources, and use of evidence. I strongly recommend submitting a rough draft at least ten days prior to its due date.
NOTE: IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE WRITING AND GRAMMAR GUIDE IN ADDITION TO THE CITATION GUIDE AS CORRECT FORMATTING OF YOUR WORK IMPROVES YOUR ESSAY. FEEL FREE TO SEND A ROUGH DRAFT TO ME.
