You do not need to put this on a separate page (save paper and put it on the last page of the text). There is also no need for a title page.
· Citation format: All citations should use footnotes that follow the format established by the Chicago Manual of Style. You will find the quick guide for this here: http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html
Tips and Hints
· This is an argumentative paper that should make a historical argument. This argument should be what drives the paper (and determines its organization).
· The main conclusion should be expressed in a clear thesis statement in the introductory paragraph.
· Make sure to combine claims with evidence: each claim should be supported with observations (or quotes) from the source; no observation (or quote) should remain without explanation or commentary.
· The guideline for quotes is: paraphrase if you can, quote if you must (for example, when the tone of the source is your focus). Quotes must be integrated logically and grammatically: never leave a quote without commentary; sentences with quotes must still make sense and be grammatically correct.
