Social Media Research
Topic: Does social media have the power to promote positive or negative changes in society?
Research Paper Overall Requirements:
You must have the topic approved before beginning the research process.
2-3 pages, not including Works Cited (so 3-4 pages total).
MLA format including internal citations and a Works Cited page.
Minimum of 2 sources cited in the paper and listed on corresponding Works Cited page.
Use NoodleTools to generate the Works Cited page because it helps with format. If you choose to create your Works Cited page manually, understand that you will lose points for any incorrect entries/citations.
A graphic organizer for taking notes with citations must be completed for the information you will include in your paper.
A full rough draft (including citations, Works Cited, and TurnItIn.com) must be turned in; not only is it a separate grade, it also determines the success of your final draft.
Plagiarism: You must submit your draft to www.turnitin.com; papers not submitted to the site by the specified due date will NOT be accepted and will receive a grade of zero. Any paper determined to have a high percentage of plagiarized material will receive a zero.
Turning in a paper to TurnItIn.com is NOT the same as turning in the paper to me; I must have a printed copy. You will NOT be allowed to print out a copy of your paper in class; come to class with the paper in hand.
