Instructions for Writing the Essay Question (you will lose points if you fail to follow these instructions): 1. Choose one question to answer from the options provided below. 2. The essay must be word-processed, double-spaced, paginated, no less than 750 words and no more than 850 words. 3. You must have a separate title page on which you include your name, date, essay title, question/prompt number, your LIB 133 section and instructor’s name, and the word count for your essay. The title page and works cited page text do NOT count towards the word count. 4. Your essay must have a thesis statement and be organized thematically, not by readings. 5. You must answer all parts of the question in order to get full credit for the essay. 6. Sources: a. In your essay, you must use specific and substantive examples (through paraphrasing and quotes) from at least three readings from Unit II on your Summer II 2016 course syllabus. b. You may also incorporate additional examples from documentaries and class lectures in your essay. Film transcripts do not count for the three readings. You may, however, refer to them once you have already used three articles. c. PowerPoints do not count as readings, and information on them should not replace information that is in any of the readings. 7. Use the MLA Style Sheet in citing the sources that you use in your essay, both in the body of the essay and in your list of citations at the end. Example of a Citation on Your Works Cited Page: For a Rothenberg Article: Shah, Sonia. “Asian American?” LIB 133 American Culture, Identity, and Public Life Course Reader. Ed. Paula S. Rothenberg. New York: Worth Publishers, 2013. 217-219. Print. NOTE: Do not use Rothenberg as the author/title of the article you are citing. You must use the name of the article’s author and the title of that article in the text of your paper and on the works cited page.
