RESEARCH PAPER ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
You will write a Research Paper on a chosen topic in the colonial era (based on your earlier Research Proposal). The topic possibilities are broad, but the final product needs to be on a narrow, specific topic. For example, you cannot cover a persons entire life in 15 pages. Therefore, if you write on a particular person, it must be about a key event or happening in that persons life (not a general biography). The final paper must be based on research that is primary source and must include academic secondary sources as well.
15 pages of text (double spaced)
Turabian style, 12 point Times New Roman font, and 1-inch margins must be used.
Footnote all specific (non-general) information.
Biblographic page (with Primary sources listed first and Secondary sources listed second).
At least 6 primary sources and 6 academic secondary sources (scholarly articles and books; encyclopedia entries and general information web sites do not normally count as academic sources).
