research paper should be at least 1000 words and may be longer.

It counts 50% of your grade in the course.

You must follow the assignment exactly.

Please note that this is not a thesis controlled essay; it is an exploration
of sources.

You will use a total of four sources, including the primary source.

The works cited list must be in MLA format. Use www.easybib.com to help you with
formatting, or send me a message. If you use databases, you will often find
the entire citation at the end of the commentary. You will just need to copy
and paste it in your works cited list and make whatever formatting changes
are necessary.


You must follow these instructions exactly.

1. Choose one of the following stories,
short novels, or plays for your research paper. You may wish to read the
introduction to the author and then to read the first few paragraphs of the
story, novel, or play to help you make your choice. If you want to know a
little more about your selection, let me know. I suggest that you read your
primary source (the story, short novel, or play) before looking for
commentaries (secondary sources), since you’ll want to experience it as literature
with all its interesting details and surprises first.  Once you have made
your choice, read carefully and take notes, jotting down any questions that
occur to you as you read. These questions will be part of your research paper.

to Write the Essay

2. Find three commentaries (articles,
interviews, overviews, critical essays, etc.) about the story or play and
take notes or highlight the parts that help in your understanding. You should
use at least two substantial quotations from each commentary in your paper. 
I encourage you to use more than three commentaries (secondary sources). Keep
in mind that your research should focus on the literature itself, not on the
author, though you may find articles in which the author (writer of the primary
source)  discusses the story, novel, or play, or you may find that the
author’s own life is relevant to the story in a very specific way. Many
biographies include discussions of specific pieces of literature by the author.
The primary source (the story, novel, or play) does not count as one of the three
(secondary sources). This means that you will have at least four
in your works cited list. Again, I encourage you to use additional
sources, especially if you don’t find answers to your questions by using only

Don’t use:

  • No internet (or print)
    sources that are “notes” or “summaries” of the primary
    source (CliffsNotes, Endnotes, Classicnotes, Booknotes, Sparknotes,
    Novelguide.com, etc) (Anything with lots of
    advertisements should be avoided.)
  • No student papers or
    free essays from websites like 1234helpme.com, freeessays.tv,
    gradesaver.com, sunflower.singnet.com, cbronte.com, bookrags,
    planetpapers.com, antiessays.com, directessays.com,  academon.com,
    echeat.com, study.com–I’m truly amazed at how many websites like this
    exist! (These papers are often already plagiarized, or they are written by
    high school students with no real evidence for their views.)
  • No
    encyclopedias, especially Wikipedia,
    which is a good
    general reference but not always reliable, especially not as literary
  • No
    dictionaries–definitions of words aren’t commentaries (though it’s good
    to look up words, of course)
  • No unsigned internet
  • No interviews with
    friends about the story or play (though it’s good to discuss the primary
    source with other people)


  • Books (biographies of
    the author, compilations of critical essays, critical studies of the
    story, novel or play)
  • HCCS databases,
    especially Literature Resource Center.  See instructions for
    accessing databases from home below.
  • Movies or documentaries
    that relate to the the primary source (You must discuss these in the
    paper, not just mention them, to count them as sources.)
  • Reliable websites (with
    authors listed)
  • Websites with .org,
    .gov., .edu (unless the source is a student

Writing the Paper

3. In your paper, begin with a brief
introduction in which you tell why you chose this story or play, what questions
you had after reading, how your found your sources, which sources were most
useful. This introduction is required. You should use “I” in the
introduction since you are discussing your personal response. 

4. Include a very brief discussion of the primary source itself, including
quotations that you think are important.
This part of the paper shouldn’t
be more than a paragraph or two. (I emphasize “brief” because in the
past, some students have discussed the story, novel, or play for half the paper
and responded very briefly to the commentaries.)  This part of the
paper should be similar to a short reading response.

5. Then discuss each commentary (source) in a full paragraph for each source,
letting the reader know what the critics have said about your story, novel, or
play. Include at least two substantial quotations from the source and
your responses to what the critics say. You will need to give the name and
author of each commentary, but don’t use these as headings. I prefer that you
organize your essay by discussing the sources one by one in separate
paragraphs. You may, of course, make connections among the sources to make the
essay flow nicely. I’m interested in what you find out about the literature
through research. Please follow punctuation rules for quotations. Quotation
marks don’t substitute for other marks of punctuation (commas, colons,
semicolons, periods). Here is a website that should be useful:
Punctuating Quotations in Essays

6. Do not put the author’s name in parentheses after a quotation.
You should introduce your source at the beginning of the paragraph by including
the author’s name and the title of the source in your topic sentence for the
paragraph. You may, of course, mention the author’s name again in a sentence if
you wish, but don’t put the author’s name in parentheses. Use sentences like,
“Baker goes on to say that. . . .” or “he also says that. . .

7. At the end of the paper, summarize what you have learned by doing the
research, perhaps letting your reader know which commentaries answered the questions
you had, which gave you additional insight, which were difficult to understand,
etc. Again, you should use “I.”

8. Include a Works Cited list at the end of the paper, listing all
sources alphabetically, using MLA documentation format.  Be sure
to list your primary source (the story, play, or novel you are writing about).
must follow MLA format exactly. If you need help, let me know. You may wish to
pick up a handout at the library or consult the following website: MLA Format. The Purdue On-line
Writing Lab
(OWL) is also very useful.

Below you will find instructions for documenting your paper. You must follow
instructions carefully.

Documentation Guidelines: English 2328

1. Include the name of
the author and title in a sentence in the text of the paper, not in
The page number should appear in parentheses just after the
quotation. The page number always comes after the quotation marks and is not
preceded by a p.; the period comes after the parentheses. See example below.
Websites and databases usually don’t have page numbers, so you need to include
only the author and title. Remember that any borrowed material (a quotation,
a paraphrase, a summary, an idea) must have an in-text citation.

Example 1 (In-text

 In Carlos Baker’s
excellent biography of Ernest Hemingway (called Hemingway: The Writer as
), he says that “‘The Snows of Kilimanjaro’ is an experiment in
the psychology of a dying man” (191).

Notice that I have not repeated “Baker”
in parentheses before the page number. It is very important not to repeat the
author’s name unnecessarily. Doing so is distracting to the reader and implies
that he or she can’t remember the name of the author, even though you have
included it at the beginning of the sentence.
(Imagining yourself as the reader is a good idea.)

Works Cited Entry:

Baker, Carlos. Hemingway, the Writer as Artist. 4th ed.
Princeton, NJ. Princeton UP. 1972. Print.

Example 2 (In-text

In Theatre U.S.A: 1665-1957, the author,
Barnard Hewitt, says the following about Tennessee Williams and the production
of A Streetcar Named Desire: “Tennessee Williams had succeeded in
investing contemporary materials with poetry by intensifying the expression of
the suffering of realistically conceived characters” (441).

Notice that there is punctuation after the introduction to the quotation. In
this case, I used a colon; however, depending on the lead-in, you might use
some other mark of punctuation. It’s important to follow normal punctuation
rules when using quotations. Notice also that the ending quotation marks come
before the parentheses and that the period comes after. Notice also that I have
not repeated the author’s name.

Works Cited Entry:

Hewitt, Barnard. Theatre U.S.A.: 1665-1957.
New York: McGraw-Hill, 1959. Print.

2. For your primary source (the story, novel, or
play you are researching), use page numbers only as long as it’s clear that you
are quoting from the primary source (and as long as you have included the author
and title in the introduction). The full citation will appear in the Works
Cited list.


narrator of “The Real Thing” by Henry James explains his philosophy
of illustration in the following passage:

liked them [Major and Mrs. Monarch]–I felt, quite as their friends must have
done–they were so simple; and I had no objection to them if they would suit.
But somehow with all their perfections I didn’t easily believe in them. After
all they were amateurs, and the ruling passion of my life was–the detestation
of the amateur. Combined with this was another perversity–an innate preference
for the represented subject over the real one: the defect of the real one was
so apt to be a lack of representation. I liked things that appeared; then one
was sure. Whether they WERE or not was a subordinate and almost always a
profitless question. (434)

The quotation above is “blocked,” which means it
is indented 10 spaces from the left margin. Quotations of four lines or more should
be blocked. Notice that there are no quotation marks around the quotation.
Blocking it reveals to the reader that you are quoting. Also, in a blocked
quotation, the period comes before the parentheses.

Examples of Works Cited Entries for primary sources:

Anthology of American Literature.

James, Henry. “The Real Thing.” The Norton Anthology of
American Literature.
Vol. C.  Eds. Nina Baym
et al. 8th ed. New York: Norton, 2012. 460-76. Print.

Notice that you should include the inclusive page numbers for the
story or play.

3. Use the following format if you’re quoting from
a multi-volume source like Twentieth Century Literary Criticism, Contemporary
Literary Criticism
, Twentieth Century Views,  etc. (Always
cite the actual author of a piece, not an editor.)

Example: In-text citation:

Trilling, in “F. Scott Fitzgerald” (from The Liberal Imagination),
says this about Fitzgerald’s writing style: “Even in Fitzgerald’s
early, cruder books, or even in his commercial stories, and even when his style
is careless, there is a tone and pitch to his sentences that suggest his warmth
and tenderness, and, what is rare nowadays and not likely to be admired, his
gentleness without softness.” (12)

Works Cited Entry:

Critical Essays
. Arthur Mizener, ed. Twentieth
Century Views. Englewood Cliffs, N.J.: Prentice Hall, 1963. 11-19. Print.

4. If you’re using the Internet, follow MLA guidelines by including
the author (if known) and title of the piece, the date the site was
created (if indicated), the http address (optional), and the date accessed. If
the author isn’t known, use the title of the piece (even if it’s a simple title
like “A Poe Chronology”).  


Melissa Byles, in a New Yorker essay called “Richard Ford on
Raymond Carver,” comments on Ford’s view of life:

Life, in Ford’s view, is something that is or flows
in easily recognizable ways. About art, he makes, I believe, the following
well-worn but not necessarily well-taken points: art can have an insignificant
subject matter (think of old shoes in Van Gogh paintings); art makes life more
worthy, and may even a surprisingly unmodern point teach us morals, a conduct;
yet art is not like life, in that art is a calculated construction, while life
involves less calculation than chance.

Center, follow this format:

Example (in-text documentation): 

Linda Wagner-Martin in ” ‘A Pair of Silk Stockings’: Overview,”
comments on the story’s style: “Chopin’s departure from a plot-oriented
narrative, to the emphasis on the inner motivation of her character, was as
important as her abandonment of the details of local color writing.”

Do not include the web address for databases.

6. To avoid repeating all of the information about
a book with several essays about your story, you may include one full reference
to the entire book (with the editor) and then cross-reference the
individual essays. Here is an example.

Colonial Classroom: Then and Now, history homework help Humanities Assignment Help

Colonial Classroom: Then and Now

Instruction in colonial schools was primarily religious and
authoritarian. Its goal was preparation for eternity. The curriculum
stressed the four Rs: readin’, ’ritin’, ’rithmetic, and religion.
Memorization and recitation were the dominant instructional processes.
The schoolmaster relied on fear to motivate children and to keep them
in order. It was not uncommon for a gag to be put in the mouth of a
child who talked too much or for a child who did not perform well to be
made to stand in the corner, sometimes on a stool, wearing a dunce

Classes often lasted from about 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a
two-hour break for lunch, for eight months (March to October) and 8
a.m. to 4 p.m. for four months (November to February). In the early
Colonial Period, classes were held in the house of the schoolmaster or
the town meeting house. Later, when schoolhouses were built, they were
scarcely more than a narrow log box with a master’s desk and crude
wooden student benches. “Many schoolhouses did not have glass set in the
small windows but newspaper or white paper greased with lard were
fastened in the rude sashes, or in holes cut in the wall, and let in a
little light” (Glubok, 1969, p. 120).

Choose four points from above (e.g., fear to motivate,
memorization and recitation as instructional practice) and compare them
to today’s classroom in the graphic organizer below.

Colonial Period

Current Day

Example: School Day from 7a.m.to 5p.m. with a 2-hour break for lunch

Example: School Day from 8a.m. to 3p.m. with a 30-minute break for lunch

In a one- to two-page essay, provide examples to demonstrate
how the practices from colonial days are similar to or different from
today’s practices. Describe any practices from the Colonial Period you
wish were still in practice today and explain why. After reviewing the
graphic organizer, explain whether or not progression has occurred in
the education field over time. Outline how this transformation affects
you as a classroom teacher in the 21st century.

Your finished paper must include the graphic organizer, a
title page, and a reference page using APA 6th-edition formats. It
should not exceed three pages in length (not including title and
reference pages). Include a minimum of two sources in addition to your
textbook and reference them in APA style.



Bank Debt in International Markets, Annotated Bibliography help Business Finance Assignment Help

Topic is : Bank Debt in International Markets

This assignment requires you to compile an Annotated Bibliography of 20 entries (twice as many is ideal!), 85% of which must be from the past five years. Each annotated entry must concisely summarize key aspects of a study—participants, purpose, research design and methods, data analysis, key findings—and include a thoughtful evaluation of the significance of the study’s findings and conclusions as they relate to your topic. In order to write quality entries, you must understand each study—what the researchers did, why they did it, and what they found and concluded. Be sure you paraphrase all content, following Academic Integrity guidelines to insure that your work is your own.

All of the entries should be relevant to your goal of developing a research problem that contributes to theory in a topic area and to designing a study that addresses the problem. Organize the entries thematically into roughly the following categories:

  • Seminal Articles
  • Theory
  • Issues and Debates
  • Key Findings
  • Designs

You will probably want to add categories specific to your topic area, and you may modify the recommended categories to organize the entries in a way that makes most sense. Be sure to include works that provide alternate or opposing perspectives on the proposed topic area in order to demonstrate unbiased research. Focus particularly on works that address main ideas in the field, describe areas of controversy, and indicate areas of incomplete knowledge and relate to your envisioned study’s problem, purpose, and research questions. It may be helpful to create a spreadsheet of the studies in your topic area, which includes, among other things, the constructs studied, how the constructs were operationalized, and the findings. Sometimes having the summary information all viewable at one time helps identify a problem. Include historical and germinal works as well as current works.

Length: 150-250 words per entry

Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your paper should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.

2 in-text citations from internet sources, Accounting Discussion Post Business Finance Assignment Help

Answer should be around 2 paragraphs with 2 in-text citations from internet sources. See below for question.

Many accounting and accounting-related professionals are skilled in financial analysis, but most are not skilled in manufacturing. This is especially the case for process manufacturing environments (for example, a bottling plant or a chemical factory). To provide professional accounting and financial services, one must understand the industry, its product, and its processes. As accountants, we have an ethical responsibility to develop this understanding before offering services to clients in these areas.

Discuss how you would obtain an understanding of key business processes of a company that hires you to provide financial services. How is this different from completing an audit?
