DESCRIPTION OF RESEARCH PAPER PROJECT

Type a research paper of 6-8 pages in length, double-spaced. A 12-point font, in Times Roman, is preferred.
The paper should include at least one illustration or a map [not included in the 6-8 pages], and all sources will be footnoted. See the “Suggested Citation Guide” below.
The intent of the paper is to explore further a topic of particular interest to you related to the class. You may also choose to include a summary paragraph that relates the historical material to current events today.
This is a short paper but it must show that you have done research beyond what we learned in class. Try to find an unusual angle or perspective (your thesis). Formulate your own opinion and back it up with sources. Don’t forget to look for primary sources.
You should use at least 3 academic sources in your paper. Avoid television shows or documentaries, and DO NOT USE student websites or Wikipedia.
If you use web-based sources, be sure it is an academic or scholarly source or a footnoted article from a museum or research institute. You can also use sites like the Library of Congress, FBI or CIA published documents, Congressional hearing reports, reputable newspaper articles, etc.
Aim for at least two citations per page. But ALL information should be referenced, not just quotations.
The research paper is worth 100 points, like an exam, and counts as 30% of the final semester grade.
THE RESEARCH PAPER IS DUE on Blackboard
