I actualley need 6 pages in total not 3, so I requested an additional 3 pages! this is for my final essay. PLEASE use same sources thank you 🙂 INSTRUCTIONS The final research essay should be at least six pages, but you may go over this limit if you'd like. Distinguish between primary (the literature) and secondary (scholarship about the literature) sources. You need both! Your own voice should predominate. You can use first person. Employ a variety of quotes, paraphrase, and summary. You'll need to cite from both primary and secondary sources. Quote only to enhance your argument. All quotations must be integrated into the discussion. All quotations must be introduced. Typically, quotes are introduced and followed by interpretation or discussion Paraphrases and summaries of secondary sources must be documented. Any secondary sources must be scholarly and reputable. Use online sources with great discretion; avoid general encyclopedias, and try to stick to Google scholar or resources in databases such as JSTOR. Be sure you have a clear, argumentative thesis. Avoid the ‘so what’ essay. Use "Works Consulted" to list works which you did not use directly. Use endnotes only for tangential information which would not fit elsewhere in the text. Use MLA, 9th edition. Owl Purdue is a good resource. Avoid using ‘this’ as a pronoun, especially at the beginning of a paragraph. Don't say “This resonates in the prequel to the novel.” Rather, say "This theme resonates in the prequel to the novel." Don't rely too heavily on any one source. Check carefully for grammatical errors. Proofread before submitting.
