RESEARCH PAPER INSTRUCTIONS
A written research paper, comparing/contrasting 3 artistic styles, will be required of all students. The topics must be chosen according to the criteria listed below. They will be required to find no less than 5 news articles, books, web sites, etc. on their topic, compiled from newspapers, news magazines, internet sites, travel guides, or reference books. Each student will hand in a typed paper of 2100 (please use the word length as your guide, but this is the equivalent of about 6 pages) on their chosen topic (5 points will be taken off for every 200 words OVER OR UNDER the assigned limit.). The paper must be double spaced in Times New Roman, 12 pt. font with one inch margins. Title pages SHOULD NOTbe used.
If a paper is turned in late, 10 points will be deducted from the score of the paper for each calendar day late it is turned in (up to 5 days). I will not accept papers that are less than half of the required length.
Please cite all information that comes from an outside source. You must cite if you summarize information from an outside source; if you directly quote from an outside source; and/or if you use any facts, figures, or other information for an outside source. You must have both in-text citation and an annotated bibliography page. Again, please contact me if you have any questions about citation.
**I will not accept papers with more than a 20% TurnItIn match. After the due date, you will not be able to make corrections to the paper.
You should utilize the MLA Style. All in-text citations should be in the parenthetical notation style. A bibliography/works cited page must also be included, but it will not count towards the total page length. Wikipedia is a good starting point for your research, but it should not be used as one of your sources. At least 2 of your sources should be from one of the two following categories: book (print or ebook), academic journal (either print or electronic).
The Topic for your paper should be chosen according to the following criteria:
- choose any three works of art from your textbook
- research your chosen works of art to determine the following:
- artist name (if known)
- artist time period
- artistic medium
- critical reception
- any defining characteristics the art possesses
- you will need to be able to answer the following questions when you write the final paper:
- how do each of your chosen works art relate to one another?
- what led you to choose your particular works of art?
- what is distinctive about the artistic media of your chosen art?
- what were the artists trying to do with their art?
