A Short Paper Assignment allows you, early in the course, to demonstrate your research skills to your instructor and to receive feedback that will benefit you when you write your research paper. With this assignment, you will learn how to do proper and adequate research and write a short paper and prepare you for writing the research paper.

 The Writing assignment 2 is simple…watch one of the films on the list and answer each question in paragraph format, citing the movie when you write something specific to answer the question.  You use the format your degree mandates. Do not forget to have a bibliography and also do not forget to answer all the questions…you should have three pages by the time you are done…meaning your answers need to be at college level to gain full credit.

This short paper is at least three double-spaced pages of text (Times New Roman, font size 12) and you must consult a the video source. Bibliographies and citations will be in your designated major’s mandated style.

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.

The short paper must include a cover page with your name, course number and course title, instructor’s name, and date. You must also include a bibliography at the end of your paper. While composing your paper, use proper English. Do not use abbreviations, contractions, passive voice, or first/ second person (I, you, we, our, etc). Before submitting your paper, check your grammar and use spell check. Remember, the way you talk is not the way you write a paper. Please label your paper as follows: lastnamefirstnameHIST222ShortPaper.
