Brilliant ideas and analyses are not persuasive unless they are intelligently presented and argued; therefore, grammar, punctuation, spelling, and the coherence of
your writing are important and will be graded. Remember, you must define any foreign language terms in English.
Any unusual or uncommon fact, idea or concept that you obtain from a source must be documented. Since all of you are covering an area of history that is uncommon to
you, most of your paraphrased information will need to be cited. However, commonly known facts, do not have to be documented. Direct quotations must always be
documented and in quotation marks. Do not quote excessively! (Excessively means that more than 10% of the paper is quotes.) When in doubt cite your work! Using ideas
or quotes without documentation is plagiarizing.
