Length: 12 to 15 typed double-spaced pages
I have provided an outline of how I would like my research paper to look like and some scholarly sources. I have also already written the research paper but it has seems to be in the form of a speech (which is not what i want) and the sources MUST be scholarly sources which unfortunately I did not do.
In evaluating the form of the paper, I will take into account such things as spelling, punctuation, grammar, word precision, style, and adequate referencing (notes and bibliography). In evaluating the content of the paper, I will take into account such things as precision of topic, organization and clarity of presentation, extent and use of sources, depth and breadth of analysis, and accuracy of analysis. Your grade will not depend on whether or not I agree with your hypothesis, but on how well you argue and support your hypothesis.
Be aware that this is a research paper, and so you will need to document the claims that you make. I am interested in your opinions, but you must support your opinions with references to the scholarly literature.
