Your Research Assignment


For this paper you will also need to do the following:

1.       Use 3 reliable sources with no more than 1 internet source (= websites that end in .org, .edu or .gov) and at least 2 written sources – a magazine or book etc (….this includes books, journals, and articles that you find through the SAA library online databases).  Again, NO encyclopedias!!! (unless specifically approved by your teacher or Mr. Sutter)

2.       Include a bibliography in correct MLA style

        You need to include the entire web address for your internet source at the end of your MLA citation. Ex:

Aristotle. Poetics. Trans. S. H. Butcher. The Internet Classics Archive. Web Atomic and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 13 Sept. 2007. Web. 4 Nov. 2008. ‹›.

3.       Write an introduction paragraph and a conclusion paragraph

4.       Have a simple thesis statement in your introduction paragraph

·         Ex:  “She is significant because…”

5.       Because all these women are from the past, you must write this paper in the PAST tense unless you are discussing her long term impact on the world today.
