This class contains three three-page papers and one larger, final project.
Requirements for the First Three Papers
- Please write a three-page paper in response to ONE of the topics below. The text should be double-spaced.
- Your paper must be computer-processed. Please give your paper a title, and write your name on the back of the last page. Do not write your name elsewhere on the paper. All pages should be numbered.
- Citations to texts read in this course should be made in parentheses in your paper. For example, if you refer to a passage on page 13 of Beik's Louis XIV and Absolutism, indicate this in the following manner at the end of your sentence, after the period: (Beik, 13). You do not need to consult any sources other than our required readings for this paper.
Example: Madame Pernelle is not always receptive to her daughter-in-law's attempts at appeasing her. She scolds her and claims that she cannot "endure [her] carryings-on." (Molière, 1)
The requirements for the final are different than the other assignments. See the explanation of the final assignment.
