AML 2600 Online - The Research Paper Format
The process of writing a research paper is not very different from the process of writing any other paper. You much choose a suitable subject and a clear purpose, gather information, organize the writing, and revise. Unlike some other papers, research papers do not always develop in a sequence; writers must retrace steps or sometimes even start over and over again.
I expect effective use of the library; successful paraphrasing, summarizing and quoting of sources; and the accurate use of MLA (the system of citations and references for this class).
Your research paper may take any of the following approaches:
Answer a question, present an argument, or survey literature
Your topic must be on something that is related to African American Literature of African American History. (person, event, etc.)
Please refer to any updated Handbook for information about the research paper and the MLA style
for documentation. This information may also be obtained from the internet.
Be sure to do the following:
…Use at least one
citation per page.
…Use font size 12
Note: I will approve your research topic. Once your final topic has been approved, you cannot change your topic, without having a letter graded dropped from your paper.
…This is the page that will include the sources you would have cited within the paper.
..A minimum of 4
sources are required for your research paper.
.The body of your paper should be a total of 5-7
pages. This does not include the title page, outline page, works cited page, and approval page.
Thesis: (one sentence – main idea)
(Use a sentence or topic outline. See MLA for rule.
(You may include graphics on this page.)
