Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
The essay responses must be a minimum of three (3) pages and a maximum of five (5) FULL pages (not including works cited page).
2. The essays need to be double-spaced
3. Students should use no higher than 12-point Times New Roman (or comparable) font
and 1-inch margins.
4. Students must use Chicago style citations when citing books, articles, films, etc. These
citations will need to be numbered throughout the essay and a works cited list must be included at the end of the essay.
5. Footnotes are not required. Just a numbered citation the refers to which source on the works cited page you are using.
6. Please refer to the historical writing sources I have provided for you on blackboard. I have also included a couple of “How-To” writing guides written by one of my former TA’s. I feel these two documents do a great job helping students put together an historical essay. Essay#1

Plagiarism is taking somebody else’s words and passing them off as your own. IF YOU COPY FROM A SOURCE OR ONLY CHANGE A FEW WORDS WITHOUT PROPERLY CITING THE ORIGINAL SOURCE
THIS IS PLAGIARISM!!! THIS IS A VIOLATION OF UH’S ACADEMICY HONESTY POLICY. IF YOU CHOOSE TO PLAGARIZE (EITHER INTENTIONALLY OR UNINTENTIONALLY), YOU NOT ONLY RUN THE RISK OF FAILING THE ASSIGNMENT, BUT YOU ALSO RUN THE RISK OF FAILING THE ENTIRE COURSE AND POSSIBLY WORSE. You must use your own words, properly cite everything that is not your own words, and use as few quotes as possible. Students must properly cite sources (direct quotes, paraphrasing someone else’s quotes, etc.) Students will see point deductions and worse for failing to cite sources. papers (90-100) are EXCELLENT. They answer the given prompt, usually within the maximum page requirement, with specific references to films and/or books and articles. There are very few spelling and grammar errors and the paragraphs flow easily from one to the next with clarity. The organization is consistent and follows a strong and detailed thesis/argument statement.
