All students will also complete a research paper (12-15 pages) on a topic of their choice. Papers should utilize both primary and secondary sources and make a clearly stated argument. Throughout the semester we will work together on this project and go through the various stages of writing together. Graded parts of this project include: an annotated bibliography, an outline, a first draft, workshopping, and the final paper. In addition to a grade on your own work, you will also receive a grade on your critiques of your peers.
Annotated Bibliography and Outline: 10%
First Draft: 15%
Final Draft: 25%
Final paper due December 17, 2012 at 5:00pm
