Analysis Paper Assignments | Online Homework Help
Table of Contents
You will be required to write two short analysis papers over the course of the semester. Each paper should be 500-750 words (approximately 2-3 pages) in length and will be worth 150 points.
These short analysis papers will focus on both your understanding of particular problems in modern American history and your development of formal, non-fiction writing skills. These papers will take a position on a pre-circulated question or topic prompt, you will create your own argument to answer the prompt, and you will support that argument with primary and secondary evidence taken from the class readings and additional posted videos.
High-quality papers should include:
- an introduction;
- be double-spaced and written in 12-point, Times New Roman font;
- a clear thesis statement;
- supporting evidence with proper MLA in-text (author-page style) (Links to an external site.) or Chicago Style footnote (notes-bibliography) (Links to an external site.)citations;
- and end with a solid conclusion.
