The research paper will need to be at least 6 pages long, not including the Works Cited page at the end. The paper will have MLA Style for documentation of sources and formatting.
The paper will need to have a thesis to keep the paper focused and organized. Include a visual aid such as a picture, graphic, table, chart, etc. in the research paper and give credit to the source of this visual aid.
In the six pages this assignment requires, the graphic should take up no more than one-half of one of those pages. (That really means 5.5 pages of writing with .5 of a page allowed for the visual aid).
The paper needs to have at least 4 outside sources. At least half of the sources you use need to be non-internet. By non-internet, this means general web pages found through a search engine such as Google or Yahoo.
The paper uses a formal, academic tone of voice.
