Paper topic: History of African American Muslims in United States
They should be 5-6 pages in length. I am structuring the papers so that students do not have to use outside sources. However, if students wish to use additional books or articles they are more than welcome to site them in their paper. If you choose to do so please notify me of the additional source(s) you will be utilizing to ensure its (their) academic reputability. Please note that Wikipedia is NOT an appropriate source for academic papers!
Paper grades will be determined on the basis of the following criteria:
1) Does the paper answer the assigned question and meet the minimum length requirement
2) Does the paper demonstrate a thorough reading of the assigned texts by means of
numerous citations of the material?
3) Does the paper begin with an introductory paragraph with a clearly stated thesis
statement and follow a coherent structure supported by facts and examples?
4) Is the paper free from grammatical and syntactical errors?
