You are allowed to choose your own topic, as long as it pertains to the subject of this course (1925 to Modern Times). If you have any questions on subject matter, please contact your instructor. This is your opportunity to look a little deeper at a subject that interests you.
This short paper is at least three double-spaced pages of text (Times New Roman, font size 12) and you must consult a minimum of two academically credible sources. Bibliographies and citations will be in an acceptable style format, either MLA, APA, or Chicago. The subject will be on something that is of interest to you between 1925 and the present. Let me know what you want to do.
The short paper needs to be turned in through the assignment section for grading. If you use any of the information from your sources word-for-word, you must cite the source by using endnotes or footnotes. If you read the information and write it in your own words and it is not common knowledge, then you must cite the source because you are paraphrasing someone’s information.
