*number each page of your paper *use 12-point type, double-spaced, Times New Roman typeface (erroneously called “font”) *print and staple your paper, bring it to class on the due date (do not send by email) *develop an argument (an interpretation) stating your views on the assigned topic *cite specific examples from primary texts, including direct quotations, to support your views; minimize your use of Holcombe or other secondary sources *place quotations in roman type, not italics *answer the exact question; don’t include extraneous background or personal information *observe the word limit. Conciseness is a virtue. Word limits force you to choose the most important ideas and to leave the rest aside.
