Research Synthesis Paper

This paper is going to be a lot more independent than the pop culture paper. You have 13 choices with a number of sources provided for each. One difference is that you are required to use at least two outside sources of academic quality.

  • 1500 words long 
  • Full MLA format (see MLA OWL link to sample pages on the blog) 
  • Use at least three sources from the conversation section that corresponds to your topic 
    • Use at least 2 outside sources – acceptable sources include: 
    • Books 
    • Reputable periodicals such as Harpers, The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Seattle Times, etc. 
    • Any ProQuest resource (User name: W417CFIFED Password: welcome) 
    • Many websites are questionable sources and Wikipedia is verboten.

These papers will graded with the concerns of the AP synthesis rubric in mind, though since this is not a rough draft an increased emphasis will be placed on format and conventions.
