Assignment: The Roots of Contemporary Issues explores the roots of five critical contemporary issues, one of each from the themes of Humans and the Environment, Our Shrinking World, Roots of Inequality, Diverse Ways of Thinking, and the Roots of Contemporary Conflicts. The four parts of the library research assignment challenged you to gather and analyze sources, develop a thesis, craft a bibliography and outline your essay – all of which culminates in an essay tracing your topic’s deep historical roots and its global significance.
Sources: Use the sources you’ve gathered and analyzed in library assignment parts I-IV (you have at least five) to begin writing and note that you may find it necessary to use additional sources available through the library. All sources must be properly cited using footnotes and in a formal bibliography attached to the end of the paper, which does not count toward your 5-7 pages length requirement.
· All exams must be typed, at least 5-7 pages in length (double-spaced, not including bibliography) 12-point font and 1” inch margins.
· No title pages.
· Your name and section number should appear in the upper left-hand header.
· Choose an appropriate title, type it on the first line of text, and then begin your essay immediately after.
· Do not use long quotations to fill up space! These will be penalized.
· All essays should be thoroughly proofread: essays with more than three typographical errors will be marked down half a letter grade.
· It is highly recommended that you use an outside proofreader or the Writing Center to cut down your sentence structure and grammatical errors.
Structure: Make sure your introduction clearly introduces your contemporary issue, and the central points (thesis/argument). The body of your paper should clearly identify the historical roots of your contemporary issue through time and across space. While your introduction will begin with the contemporary issue, the body of your paper may work either backwards or forwards in historical time. Or you might find it necessary to employ other organizational forms, such as geography or sub-topics. Whatever you choose, make sure that your narrative flows. Remember to provide a conclusion that brings all the various parts of your essay together, especially addressing the question of how an understanding of the past is important to understand your issue in the present.
