from the professor,
Please work on the following issues:
The argument needs to be clearly stated in the introduction.
The argument needs to be more specific and not merely descriptive.
The paper needed more specific examples from the historical documents,
textbook, and lecture notes to support its main ideas/argument.
Include citations for ALL evidence used, even if paraphrasing.
Use ONLY the required sources for the paper.
Historical Context –
The paper needed to place the documents within a historical period and
provide an assessment of how the documents reflected multiple
perspectives within this historical context.
The paper needed a clear introduction, body paragraphs, and a conclusion.
Each paragraph needed a topic sentence that states the central idea
holding the paragraph together. Transitions unite the essay.
Paragraphs needed to relate to the argument.
Paper needs to pay attention to chronology and discuss events in the order that they happened.
Sentences must be clear and free of spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.
Quotes must be introduced and integrated into the text.
Paper must not use contractions.
Citations must follow required format.
Paper must not use personal pronouns.
Paper must be required length.
Paper must be written in past tense.
Titles must be underlined or italicized within text.
Needs to restate the main argument and sum up the evidence.
Must not introduce new ideas or information.
The paper should not be divided into chapters using subheadings. The paper should flow together using transitions.
Proofread carefully. There should be no misspelled words, no contractions (example: can’t, don’t, isn’t), no abbreviations, and no personal or possessive pronouns. Do not use “I” or “you” or “us” or “our” or “my”.
Please follow these examples for in-text citations:
From the textbook: First author’s last name and page number. Example: (Henretta, 264).
From lecture: The word “Lecture” followed by the date of lecture. Example: (Lecture, 1/27/10).
From the Attitudes book: Essay author’s last name and page number. Example: (Horowitz, 15).
Do not use overly long quotations in a paper of this length. If a quotation is over 6 lines in length, paraphrase parts of it and only quote the most significant portions.
When quoting material from your documents, be sure to introduce the quotes. In other words, incorporate the quoted material into a complete sentence. For example, you might write:
In her speech to the Academic Senate in July 1999, noted historian Mary Doe admitted, “Writing a research paper is the most inhumane form of torture known to man,” (Document 10).
Do not let a quote stand alone without introduction, such as:
“Writing a research paper is the most inhumane form of torture known to man,” (Document 10).
Always write about history using past tense. Elizabeth Cady Stanton is dead. She says nothing and believes nothing anymore, but she said and believed many things in the past.
