Structure Your paper should have an Introduction (20 points), Body (50 points), and Conclusion (10 points). Proper organization of materials, including paragraphing and citations (20 points).These sections are not necessarily labeled as such, but it should be clear to the reader where one section ends and the next begins. The Body may be further subdivided, highlighting the focus or topic of that particular section. The Introduction should contain at some point a clearly articulated thesis statement. The thesis statement indicates what issue or problem you are researching, why it is important, and (at least sometimes) how you intend to go about investigating the problem. The thesis statement should be closely related to the topic you have chosen. This work is to be a research paper. I am not interested in a “book report” which simply repeats information you have culled from the sources. Your paper should contain an analysis of the issue/problem addressed in the paper. Papers lacking this element will not receive high scores. Your paper should articulate salient points backed by evidences and examples/statistics and should be grammatically correct. (References must be cited in your paper and also in a list of references arranged alphabetically at the end). You should cite at least four works, including at least one scholarly work, to support your views.
