In an 8-page research paper, consider either the importance or fallacy of capitalism
Final Paper Guidelines.
In an 8-page research paper, consider either the importance or fallacy of capitalism. You will need to formulate your own thesis– this is simply a prompt. Keep in mind “capitalism is good/bad” is not a thesis!
In this 8-page paper, you must perform a close reading that utilizes and cites THREE secondary sources that will help you to flesh out your argument/thesis. Your secondary source must come from a scholarly reviewed journal from NO LATER THAN 2005.
This paper must be a minimum of two (8) pages. This means your paper must be filled to the end of page eight. You are encouraged to write more, but please do not make the mistake of believing quantity makes up for a lack of quality. The paper is due online by 11:59 PM on 12/2/2020. Late submissions will not be accepted for any reason.
When writing your paper, please adhere to the following rules. Failing to do so will result in a returned, unread paper:
- Papers must be a Word file and written in Times New Roman font, size 12.
- Papers must have margins of one (1) inch all the way around.
- Papers must have been spell checked, as stated in the syllabus.
- Papers must be written in MLA format. If you are unfamiliar, please refer to an MLA style guide or visit The Purdue Owl’s website, https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/
- Papers must be uploaded to blackboard.
- You must quote three secondary sources at least one time each.
- An appropriate secondary source would come from a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal. If you don’t know what this is, or how to find one, the onus is on you to reach out and ask!
- You must use academic voice.
Writing an Academic Paper
You must make sure that your argument or position is clear. Any insights or ideas that you have should be in support of your argument; do not waste your time on insights or ideas that are against, in competition with, or wholly unrelated to your position. You must be able to support your argument or position with the text. For example, arguing that a character is literally blue (as in he has blue skin) when the text clearly states that he is orange is a fruitless endeavor. “Lastly, a masterfully crafted paper will not only use the text to argue and enhance the author’s position, but will use the text to anticipate counterarguments” (Harvard Writing Center).
In summation, in order to write a great academic paper, you should…
- Have a thesis. This is your reason for writing the paper. What are you arguing? What is the point you hope you will have made by the end of the paper? Your thesis should be something exciting and not a rehash of something that the text explicitly covers.
- Have a structured argument. Is your argument valid? How are you going to back up the assertion you made in your thesis statement? What clues or evidence does the text give that points to your position being the only rational way of thinking about your topic? What objections may arise to your argument and how can you effectively dismantle them using your textual clues and evidences? Your argument should be clear and sound in its reasoning, as well as structured in a manner that flows nicely; if your paper contains disjointed thoughts or hops from one thing to the next without a clear transition sentence— or sentences— you will leave the reader confused and ultimately unconvinced of the strength and veracity of your position.
- Have a closing. Do not just end your paper with a piece of textual evidence/an explanation of how a part of the story backs your thesis. A strong conclusion, in which you give a summation of your argument and leave the reader with either more to think about or with a sense of completeness is essential for a successful paper.
