Caricature Double Entendre Humor Irony Intertextuality Jokes Language Play Metaphor Paradox Parody Practical Jokes Satire Sarcasm Wit etc When you have chosen your topic please e mail it to me so that

paragraphs of your research paper should contain proper development and all but the first and last of your paragraphs should contain in text citations with page numbers You must use MLA format for your documentation In class I will go over 1 the Research Paper Check List so you will know what I look for in research papers including documentation details Please double space everything use only one side of the paper and indent long quotes quotes of five lines or more Your Works Cited page must contain at least three critical sources not counting web sites newspapers magazines interviews etc Your Works Cited should include only works you have paraphrased quoted or alluded to in the body of your paper Since I will be evaluating your ability to synthesize and integrate other people s opinions you must cite at least three experts Be sure to indent or put quotation marks around all quoted materials and be sure to indicate sources and page numbers Professional journals anthologies and books are good sources Audiotapes CDs magazines movies newspapers newsletters videotapes and snippets as opposed to extended discussions by a single author can be used but must be supported by the good sources Because web sites are constantly changing and usually don t have peer review they are very uneven so be very critical of web sites EVALUATION OF RESEARCH PAPERS 1 Have you selected an appropriate topic from the list of topics above It your topic focused and unified 2 Do you have at least three scholarly references in your Works Cited 3 Did you read these references carefully and totally understand them 4 Did you select significant and insightful parts of these references to quote and or to paraphrase 5 Did you cite the page numbers after all of your quotations and paraphrases

a three level outline of your paper look like 9 Did you make significant generalizations 10 Did you support these generalizations with significant and insightful details 11 Were your sources well integrated into the body of your paper NOTE This is a research paper so it should not be about what you think It should be about what the experts think REWRITES OF RESEARCH PAPERS Rewrites of research papers can increase your research paper grade by as much as one full grade if substantial as well as corrective revisions are made Rewrites must be accompanied by the original marked copy and the
