The Harlem Renaissance A Short Paper Assignment allows you, early in the course, to demonstrate your research skills to your instructor and to receive feedback that will benefit you when you write your research paper. With this assignment, you will learn how to do proper and adequate research and write a short paper and prepare you for writing the research paper. This short paper is at least three double-spaced pages of text (Times New Roman, font size 12) and you must consult a minimum of two academically credible sources. Bibliographies and citations will be in the Chicago Manual of Style format. The short paper needs to be turned in through the assignment section for grading. If you use any of the information from your sources word-for-word, you must cite the source by using endnotes or footnotes. If you read the information and write it in your own words and it is not common knowledge, then you must cite the source because you are paraphrasing someone's information. The short paper must include a cover page with your name, course number and course title, instructor's name, and date. You must also include a bibliography at the end of your paper. While composing your paper, use proper English. Do not use abbreviations, contractions, passive voice, or first/ second person (I, you, we, our, etc). Before submitting your paper, check your grammar and use spell check. Remember, the way you talk is not the way you write a paper. Please label your paper as follows: lastnamefirstnameHIST222ShortPaper.

Does your paper include a separate cover page that includes assignment name, student name and student number, course name, professor name, date and institution? Is your paper formatted with one inch margins and using New Times Roman 11 or 12 point font?  Is your file submitted using last name first name course and assignment? Example: SmithWilliamHIST101ShortPaper). Introduction and Thesis Statement   Did you restate question verbatim to be answered before beginning of main essay? You may cut and paste question before introduction. Did your essay include an introduction and clear thesis statement at the end of the introduction? Organization and Body of essay   Is your essay well-organized with topic sentences and supporting detail that reinforces your thesis? Did your essay meet narrative word count requirements? Narrative word count is word count without citation and bibliography. Place word count requirement here. Historical Analysis    Did you construct your essay using quality academic sources (specifically book or peer-reviewed sources from our Online Library or other university, governmental, museum, or research websites)? Place primary and secondary source requirements here. Did you include relevant historical support, including historical examples that reinforce your thesis? Did you include chronological context in your essay and include important dates or date spans? Writing Style and Grammar    Is your essay composed using formal English (no use of slang) and using proper capitalization, grammar and spelling rules? Is your essay presented in academic third person (does not use “I”)? Did you refrain from using abbreviations and contractions in your analysis (use “do not” instead of “don’t”)? Use of Citation and Bibliography     Did you consistently follow the citation and bibliographical requirements of one style manual (Chicago or Turabian, MLA, or APA)? If you are familiar with a style, please use that style consistently throughout your essay. Do not switch between styles. History majors are strongly encouraged to use Chicago or Turabian citation as this is a requirement in upper-level courses. Did you cite your sources in the narrative of your essay using parenthetical citation or computer-generated footnote/endnote numbering? Remember citation takes place immediately after each use of direct quote and after paraphrasing of information. Did you include a separate bibliography with your essay? Is the bibliography alphabetized and includes all relevant information depending on source type? Remember accessed date for online sources.
