Papers should be typed, double-spaced, and stapled. A strong analytical paper will be clearly written, explore and connect the relevant readings, include proper citations, and demonstrate critical analysis. You should provide a clear thesis statement presenting your argument near the beginning of your paper. Citations must be included whenever you paraphrase (summarize) or quote from a source. As you will be expected to provide specific examples to support your arguments, all analytical papers should include citations. You are discouraged from using material outside the course (this is not a research paper), but if you do you must include full bibliographical information. In-text citation is acceptable for materials from the course, and should include the author and page number.
