Monograph paper: Should be 3-5 pages in length, double-spaced, with a 12 font size, and one inch margins on all sides. Please include a cover sheet and a bibliography (works cited page) with your assignment. Furthermore, these do not count in the page count of your paper. You must have at least 3 full pages of text written by you, minimum, or points will be deducted, and you must submit your paper as an attachment. Failure to submit the paper as an attachment will result in a grade of 0.
This is not a book report. Your purpose is to read and analyze the monograph required in the course. This monograph is Coming of Age in Mississippi by Anne Moody. It will be your assignment to examine the material covered in the monograph and develop and support an argument (with specific evidence from the monograph) as you describe the experiences of Anne Moody in relation to the more well-known Civil Rights activists (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, etc.).Although you will be developing a thesis based on your opinion, you must support your thesis with evidence from the book. You may also use the course textbook and articles in the Virtual Reader (see file listed on the Course Content page) as sources. Again, no other sources, including websites, will be allowed. If you use sources that are not allowed, 20 points will be deducted from your grade.
For assistance with how to cite properly, please refer to the file listed on the Course Content page (Turabian Tutorial or Plagiarism.org). You must include both footnotes and a works cited page (both properly formatted).
Your paper will be submitted to a plagiarism checker by me to ensure academic honesty. Plagiarism, whether intentional or unintentional, will result in a grade of 0 for the assignment and possibly further actions being taken.
Also, please remember that you need to use more than the monograph as a source in your paper. You cannot write a well-balanced argument nor can you support your thesis properly by simply using one source (the monograph). Please use one or more of the additional sources listed above.
Lastly, in addition to being graded for content, you will also be graded on format. This includes spelling, grammar, punctuation, paragraph formatting, sentence structure, etc. Please be sure to proofread your work to ensure your submission is a college-level paper.
