Be sure to draw on specific examples from The Condition of the Working Class in England, King Leopold's Ghost, Heart of Darkness, and the documents in Sources of World Societies Vol II since 1500s. in order to construct an argument that addresses all of these questions.
Sources: You must draw on specific examples from The Condition of the Working Class in England, King Leopold's Ghost, Heart of Darkness, and at least THREE other sources from Sources of World Societies in to support your argument and illustrate points. This is not a research paper, so you need not do any other research. If you would like to incorporate other works into your paper, you must contact me with the information of these other works so that they can be approved prior to their usage. INTERNET SOURCES ARE NOT TO BE USED UNLESS GIVEN PERMISSION.
Finally, evidence from your sources ought to be incorporated well and used judiciously. Large block quotations that fill up space in your paper but do not help advance your argument will be grounds for deductions in terms of the grade for the paper. I would much rather hear what you wrote in a seven-page paper in which there is less direct quotations than see a eight-page paper that has many direct quotations in which I read less of your own ideas. Hearing what you think about the prompt is what I am interested in after all.
Citations of Sources: Whenever quoting or paraphrasing any work, you must cite them or this is plagiarism and grounds to fail the assignment. You must cite them parenthetically. If you do not cite or do so improperly, you will lose points. A reference page is unnecessary if you are only using texts from this course.
Writing grades will be based on the following considerations.
1. You have written a clear and comprehensive thesis statement in the opening paragraph.
2. You have answered and followed the directions of the assignment properly.
3. You have organized your answer(s) into logical paragraphs.
4. You have supplied adequate evidence to back up your argument and thesis.

6. You have provided specific references to your sources and have properly cited those sources.
