Argument

  • Your research paper must be a literary analysis of one of the assigned readings.

  • You should avoid unnecessary biographical information and plot summary. Your paper should be an analysis of the text.

Use of Research

  • You must use at least 5 secondary sources that provide critical arguments about the reading you've chosen. These sources should ONLY come from the GMC library or library databases.
  • Your secondary sources should be used sparingly to either support or explain your thesis.
  • You may quote, paraphrase, or summarize your sources. For more information, view the Purdue

OWL's website: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/563/1/.

MLA Style

Resources page: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/1/.

Structure

  • The introduction should include a clear thesis statement.
  • Each body paragraph should have a clear topic sentence that relates back to the thesis. The information in each paragraph should relate to the topic sentence.
