FORMAT FOR TERM AND EXTRA-CREDIT PAPERS


Term papers:
Ten to fifteen pages in length, typed, double-spaced, standard format, unless otherwise specified in your syllabus.

Extra-credit papers:
Three to five pages in length, typed, double-spaced, standard format.

In both cases:
Papers should have at least 6-8 current references (preferably more), all of which should be cited in the body of the paper, and all of which should be listed at the end of the paper. URLs must be accompanied by title, author, and dates of preparation and/or access of the Web pages they refer to. You may use either MLA or APA format for references (including URLs).

Descriptive papers are acceptable, but analytical papers with original content make a much stronger impression.
