Documented Research Essay 2 – Topic: “Bartleby, the Scrivener”
Due Thurs, June 23 by 11:59 PM – Late Papers Lose Credit
Requirements for the essay:
Length: five-and-a-half to seven (5.5-7) full pages in length, double-spaced with 1-inch margins. Write in enough detail to thoroughly investigate your topic.
A separate Works Cited page (with the Primary and Secondary sources cited, per MLA style)
Your essay should have an introduction with a thesis statement (review the feedback you received from the discussions).
Body paragraphs (each with a topic sentence and a main idea).
Quotes from the primary text: Include at least 6 (max. 8) direct quotes using MLA in-text style.
Quotes from 3 scholarly journal articles: Include at least 6 (max. 8) quotes from the scholarly journal articles using MLA in-text style.
Explanation of quotes: After you use a quote, explain and analyze how the quote proves or explains your thesis. A paragraph should never end with a quote.
A strong conclusion: Always conclude with your own voice–do not end your paper with a quotation.
Review your work for spelling, grammar, sentence structure, and MLA compliance. If necessary, review the grammar guides to receive grammatical assistance.
Do not wait until the last minute to submit your paper–that’s when computer issues, Internet problems, etc., arise–it is your responsibility to have your work in on time–I have provided plenty of time for you to read ahead and get started on your assignments. You are being graded on the following:
Clear thesis statement, well-organized supporting points and conclusion
Cited adequately and correctly from the primary text and the secondary sources (scholarly journal articles)
Demonstrated writing strength (sentence structure, spelling, grammar) appropriate to a 200-level literature course
Proper use of MLA formatting style (per PDF guides in “Class Information”)
Review the Instructions. Proofread your work using the materials I provided to ensure that the quality of your writing meets the standards for a 200-level literature course. I have placed MLA Style and Formatting guides in “Class Information,” which show how to properly format your paper’s heading and how to properly quote. Use these guides. Your essay should be supported by the literature (quotations from the novel and from 3 scholarly journal articles, properly cited using MLA 8th Edition style). The paper should be 5.5 – 7 full pages in length, with a separate page as the separate Works Cited page.
All papers will be submitted using TurnItIn, which captures uncited sources and instances of plagiarism.
NOTE: In using quotes, do not use long quotes–the similarity checker should not go above 25% for the formal essay–if it does, go back and shorten the quote or include more analysis.
Do not wait until the last minute to submit your paper–that’s when computer issues, Internet problems, etc., arise–it is your responsibility to have your work in on time. No late papers will be accepted. Again, you are being graded on the following:
Clear thesis statement, well-organized supporting points and conclusion
Cited adequately and correctly from the primary text and the secondary sources
Demonstrated writing strength (sentence structure, spelling, grammar) appropriate to a 200-level literature course
Proper use of MLA formatting style (per PDF guides in “Class Information”
Per standard composition format:
1. Create your own title for your paper. Capitalize all main words in your essay title.
2. Indent paragraphs.
3. Spell the author’s name correctly (Herman Melville).
4. Use the author’s surname (last name) after mentioning him by full name: Melville (not Herman).
5. Use the correct title for the short story. It is titled “Bartleby, the Scrivener.” Since it is a short story, use quotation marks around its title per MLA format. DO NOT italicize, do not use bold type, do not underline, and do not use a larger font.
Essay Structure:
1. All writing must be double-spaced (not 2.5), with 12 pt. font (not 14).
2. MLA formatted heading.
3. A title for your essay, centered.
4. Clear opening paragraph with thesis statement and signal phrase (mentioning full name of author and title of text).
5. Clear topic sentences.
6. Quotations (properly introduced and cited). Do not use long quotes. Keep the similarity rating to a maximum of 25%. If it exceeds that, try shortening a few quotes and paraphrasing more.
7. Transitional phrases to move from paragraph to paragraph.
8. A clear conclusion.
Additional Notes on Grammar:
1. You must proofread for sentence structure (sentence fragments, run-ons, comma splices, subject/verb agreement errors, spelling errors, etc.). I uploaded grammar guides to the Moodle Room, and you can also use NetTutor to help you proofread. In addition, use the ETS rater–it will help, but it does not find all errors. It is your responsibility to upload the strongest paper you can.
2. You must use proper punctuation (periods, commas, quotation marks, semicolons, apostrophes, etc.).
3. You must use proper capitalization of words.
4. Again, you must focus on format AND content.
5. Again, please proofread before uploading your work.
Plagiarism results in an “F” on the paper. A second instance of plagiarism results in automatic failure of the course.
YOU MAY NOT USE the following as sources, as they are NOT considered scholarly works: SparkNotes, CliffsNotes, ClassicNotes, Enotes, GradeSaver, or other student guides; also, do not use encyclopedias, dictionaries, or sites which simply offer summaries. Further, do not use plagiarism sites such as 123HelpMe, Free Essays, or any other “essays for sale” type sites.
PLEASE NOTE: Simply re-wording summaries or analysis from another source constitutes plagiarism—your work must consist of YOUR OWN THOUGHTS AND WRITING—please don’t fail this course because of plagiarism. Make sure that you use quotation marks and that you give proper credit to the source if you are paraphrasing.
When you have completed the assignment, save a copy for yourself in an easily accessible place and submit a copy through TurnItIn by the deadline.
