You are allowed to choose your own topic, as long as it fits the the subject and time period of this course – American history since 1877. This means no papers on Hitler or the Holocaust, or George Washington. If you have any questions on subject matter, please contact your instructor. This is your opportunity to look a little deeper at a subject that interests you. Also, the topic for the second paper MUST be different than the one you wrote your first paper about.
This short paper must be a minimum of three double-spaced pages of text (Times New Roman, font size 12), exclusive of the title page, bibliography, and other end matter. You must consult a minimum of two academically credible sources. Please note that Wikipedia, History.com, Biography.com, encyclopedias, and the Henretta course textbook are NOT academic sources for the purpose of this assignment. Your bibliography and citations may be in APA, MLA, or Chicago Style format.
If you use any of the information from your sources word-for-word, you must cite the source by using endnotes, footnotes, or parenthetical citations. 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 / title page with your name, course number and course title, instructor’s name, and date, and a title for the paper. You must also include a bibliography at the end of your paper, which should begin on a separate page. To obtain proper spacing between the title page and the main text, or the main text and the bibliography, do NOT use line spacing, as this is unreliable. Instead, use the “Insert – Break – Page Break” from the Word menu bar after the text to make the next material start on a new page. 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 use a file label for your paper as follows: lastnamefirstnameHIST102ShortPaper.
