TERM PAPER TOPIC Each student must turn in a provisional term paper topic on March 5th. Use this guide as a starting point to develop your term paper topic but note that the rough ideas listed at the end of this document do not constitute a term paper topic. Also, I am open to topics that are not on this list. At any point in your process, if you have questions – contact me immediately so we can discuss your ideas. The sooner you start this process, the more time you have to work on your paper and ultimately, the better the end result can be. Your provisional term paper topic must be typed or computer printed; handwritten entries will not be accepted. Email submissions will not be accepted. In addition to turning in a single hardcopy of the paper topic, you need to turn in this document via the iLearn system by 3/5 at midnight. The provisional term paper topic must fit on a single page and must include the following elements: • Your Name & Email address • Provisional Paper Title • Paper Abstract (1 paragraph summary of your paper topic) • At least 3 specific non-web sources that you intend to reference. • At least 1 specific web-based source that you intend to reference - note: make sure that your specific sources are cited using MLA style. TOPIC APPROVAL & CHANGES • I will return all topic proposals with an indication of whether your topic has been approved or not. If your topic has not been approved, you will need to re-submit a revised or completely new topic. The resubmission process itself can take time, so it is my suggestion to get this correctly the first time because it can ultimately eat into the time that you have to research and write the paper in the first place. • You cannot change your paper topic without approval. • Absolutely No changes to your paper topic will be approved after spring break. • I reserve the right to assign a grade of D or worse to any paper whose topic has not been approved or which has changed without approval. NOTES ON THE TERM PAPER • Your term paper will consist of a concisely argued, well-researched essay of 8-10 pages not including end notes, references, illustrations or bibliography. Papers must be typed or computer printed, double-spaced, 12-point font with numbered pages. (this means the word count of your paper will be within the range of 2500 – 3500 words not including citations, references, end notes or bibliography) • Papers will be graded on composition as well as content, with higher marks given for clear organization, good critical thinking, strong evidence, thorough research, decisive conclusions, and engaging style. Additionally, your term paper is expected to evidence use of traditional as well as web research resources. • Students are encouraged to discuss topics, outlines and drafts of their papers with the instructor during office hours or after lectures before turning in your final paper.
• You must turn in 1 printed hardcopy of your paper - Handwritten papers or email submissions will be not be accepted. • In addition to turning in 1 printed hardcopy of your paper, you must also turn in an electronic version of your final paper through the Ilearn system. If you visit the 227 web page through Ilearn, you will find the term-paper assignment available to you as of today. Ilearn will allow you to upload a word document, or cut and paste your paper into its interface. YOU are responsible for making sure that you turn in an electronic version of your paper through the Ilearn system – again, email submissions will not be accepted. • In order for your paper to be turned in on time you must turn in 1 printed hardcopiy on April 23rd – and by April 23rd at midnight, you must have turned in an electronic version of your paper via the Ilearn system. • Do not use a binder. A single staple in the upper right corner will suffice. • Do not use a title page. Refer to the MLA Handbook for guidelines on how and where to place your name, course name, instructor name, date and paper title. • Use MLA Citation Style for all referencing. If you are going to use a different system, check with me. If you do not know what MLA Style is, you should take a look at the MLA resources linked from the class web site. Due Date Papers are due on April 23rd. Late Papers Late papers will automatically receive a grade of D or worse, depending on the content of the paper. Regarding Plagiarism Plagiarism is a form of cheating or fraud; it occurs when a student misrepresents the work of another as his or her own. Plagiarism may consist of using the ideas, sentences, paragraphs, or the whole text of another without appropriate acknowledgment, but it also includes employing or allowing another person to write or substantially alter work that a student then submits as his or her own. Any assignment found to be plagiarized will be given an "F" grade. All instances of plagiarism will be reported to the Dean of the College, and may be reported to the University Judicial Affairs Officer for further action.
