You need to write a typed, three page or longer, double – spaced paper on the assigned monograph, based on the instructions below. You must use the MLA style explained in the Course Introduction folder on the Learning Web. You must upload the paper, as indicated in the course, by the due date.
The most important step is organizing your thoughts. Before you actually start writing the paper. Please do not use more than two direct quotations.All grammar and spelling must be correct; please review the paper carefully before turning it.The paper must conform to the MLA guidelines. Papers which are poorly written will receive a significant reduction in the grade. You need to discuss all the questions below in your paper but
please do so in a cohesive manner so the paper is not merely a listing of responses to the questions.Your paper does not necessarily have to discuss these questions in the same order as shown below.You are encouraged to provide any
additional insights on the monograph that you think are relevant, but no additional research is required.
One to two paragraph brief summary of the book.
Who is the author and what is his or her background?
Does the author have any particular ideological viewpoint that he or she is trying to advance, or do you consider the author to have been neutral and presented both sides of controversial issues?(You will find asking this same question will help you in other courses and your future career.)
What do you think of the authorâ€™s title? Would you have used a different title?
Do you believe the author accurately described the social history of the decades of the 1920s and the 1930s?What, if anything, might be excluded or added?

Did the book increase your interest in a particular issue that you would like to learn more about?

No late papers will be accepted except in extraordinary circumstances with written documentation.
DO NOT PLAGIARIZE YOUR PAPER; DOING SO WILL RESULT IN AN â€œFâ€
There is no reason to plagiarize. Start reading the monograph and answer the questions as you go along.You are not expected to be perfect authors. The reason you are taking a college level course is so that you can develop these skills.
I would much rather receive a well-reasoned and written two- or three-page paper
than a rambling 10-page paper. Please remember what Winston Churchill once wrote at the very end of a 12 page detailed letter to one of his generals during World War II â€“â€œSorry this letter is so long, but I didnâ€™t have time to write a shorter one.â€
Last words : Please don’t plagiarize and make sure you did all his requirements . Thanks !
