Project Description

World War I Library Project

Each student will come up with a question to answer in a 1 ½ to 2 page research assignment. A minimum of three online sources from the LibGuide must be used for research.


Format

·         Times New Roman

·         12 point

·         Double-spaced

·         One inch margins

·         Use parenthetical citations to identify your sources

Content

·         Bring it up: In your first paragraph, write one to two sentences which gives the answer to your question. This is known as a thesis statement.

·         Back it up: Body paragraph(s) which explain your thesis statement. This will be one-third to one-half of your entire paper.

·         Sum it up: Your concluding paragraph will have a summary/conclusion. No new information will be given here.

Grade

·         30%--parenthetical citations/works cited

·         70%--content

Good researchers use a variety of types of resources.  Many begin with books to frame the context of the project, then articles from databases for more specific and/or current information.  Use academic websites to supplement what you have already found elsewhere.  Finally, cite your sources as you gather them and take good notes as you read in order to avoid plagairism.
