Instructions: Delete my headings and all the instructions I have typed. Do NOT skip

extra lines between paragraphs – only indent. Each heading that I list below can be

multiple paragraphs (and probably will be to meet page requirements). Make sure to start

a new paragraph when your focus shifts . Make sure to remove the bold and highlights.

Make sure to cite your sources within your paper - and to indicate direct quotations with

both quotation marks around what you copied and a citation.

Introduction Paragraph (Delete these headings and everything I have typed)

Place your introduction paragraph here. Provide a general overview of your topic. End

with your thesis statement as your last sentence. Please underline your thesis statement.

This intro should give an overview of your main assertion for the paper. For example

(and you can choose to follow my suggested thesis here if you want): Industrialization

after the Civil War affected the United States in several ways including - AND THEN

LIST THE EFFECTS YOU WILL DISCUSS.

Discuss/detail the three major aspects of Industrialization you listed in the

outline: This section should contain AT LEAST THREE paragraphs - each aspect will be

a minimum of one full paragraph and could be more if you have more than one focus or

example of it. (remember your aspects are NOT social, political, economic – those are

categories an aspect like urbanization would fall into)

above the requirement is exemplary: This section should contain AT LEAST THREE

References

(Delete my notes and write references in APA format)

(you must include at least three references other than the textbook (you can use the text,

but it will not count as one of those three). NOTE: Wikipedia and other generic-type

websites (like ask.com, about.com, infoplease, you tube,) are not acceptable. You must

use scholarly sources only. Academic journals from the library search engines are best

(like Jstor etc.). Use the collection of databases accessible in the Learning Resources

Center Web page. Do not use generic websites), You can also include primary sources,

which are very valuable to a research paper. (a source that was written during this time -

like a diary entry or newspaper article from the time period.)

You can also use http://scholar.google.com/ - which will bring up scholarly references. If

it asks you to pay - do not do that. You can write down the author and name of article

and probably find it in the Strayer library resources.

Remember this should be a separate page at the end of your paper. Make sure to cite

your references throughout the paper any time you use info from the source that is not

common knowledge (you can group it at the end of a paragraph if all the info in that

paragraph came from the same source). Make sure to put any direct quotes in quotation

marks and cite immediately at the end of that sentence. Remember that direct quotes

should be no more than 10% of your paper. The rest should be explained in your own
