All versions of the papers must be complete (typed with an introduction, an arguable thesis, supporting paragraphs providing a thorough discussion of evidence/points, and a conclusion, and using either MLA or the Chicago Style Manual citation format).

A peer review session will be scheduled on 12/3 before the final paper due date on 12/5 to help you write the best paper possible. Also, a detailed assignment description and rubric will be handed out after the midterm in class, so you will know the scope of the assignment and the criteria on which your paper will be graded.
