Long essay: students are required to write a lengthy essay that has a thesis statement, a lengthy analysis of several documents related to a historical theme assigned to each section, and a conclusion. Papers will be evaluated on the basis of the Grading Rubric provided below. Please read instructions on page 3 carefully before you submit all of your papers. STUDENTS MUST WRITE PAPERS and DOCUMENT ANALYSES IN THEIR OWN WORDS. Failure to do this constitutes plagiarism, which means: ?Improper use of another’s ideas or language.? Paraphrasing closely without giving credit or using original phrases or words without quotation marks are definitely examples of plagiarism. Academic and legal penalties are severe and can include a failing grade in the course, expulsion, and even denial of college degrees. Be scholarly and honest.? GUIDELINES FOR PAPER WRITING PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU SUBMIT ALL PAPERS 1. appearance: papers must be typed and double-spaced. Leave 1 1/2 inch margins all around. 2. content: the long paper assignment will ask you to interpret and analyze selected documents in MyHistory Lab. Quotes from the documents must figure prominently in your essays. Quotes from the narrative portions of the Craig textbook are also required, as they will enable you to make solid observations about the era in question. 3. structure of paper: unless you are an acknowledged expert in the art of essay writing, you will help your cause by outlining your ideas before you write them out in your final draft. Please use this tried and true format for your papers: introduction, supporting evidence of main theme, and a conclusion (remember: a conclusion concludes; it does not summarize). 4. sources: students are to use only two sources: the Craig text and the documents in MyHistory Lab.
