I’m working on a History project and need a sample draft to help me understand better.
Your paper must be at least 1500 words in length, which corresponds roughly to six pages using Times New Roman (12 font) and double-spacing. Papers must be structured as follows:
- Opening paragraph in which you specify your thesis/claim (what the paper will be discussing). Avoid the word I. Instead, write This paper will or The purpose of this paper is to
- Several paragraphs containing direct quotes (not too many), paraphrased information, and individual commentary in which you flesh out your topic. Keep in mind that direct quotes AND paraphrased information must be internally cited.
- Final paragraph in which you make a conclusion based on the content of your paper.
Papers must follow MLA guidelines with regard to internal citations, formatting and bibliography (there are several MLA guides online that you can reference).
