Week 30: Week of March 19-23, 2k18

Hey #Davis8.  This is Outline Week!  We're gonna spend the week working on the President Research paper.

If you are ready to outline...BEGIN outlining!  Remember, you are writing this paper in chronological and thematic order.  When you write, try to link the events in your paragraphs by theme.  i.e. If you were writing a paper about Andrew Jackson (which you did)  you would talk about the different events that are similar to each other and then in chronological order.

The Outline will be typed, 12 font, Times New Roman, 1" margins, double spaced, MLA format...

**Paraphrase your information in the Outline...Do not write everything as is word for word from your note card...
**You do NOT put your introduction in the Outline
***You do NOT put the conclusion in the Outline
****You must cite all your note cards in (parenthetical documentation) -10 points if not done
******You must have a works cited at the end of the Outline with all your sources in chronological order by author last name -10 points if not done
*******For every "I" you need a "II"....For every "A" you need a "B".... For every "1" you need a "2"...For every "a" you need a "b" -10 points if not done correctly

The NEW Outline due date is Thursday, March 29.  ALL CLASSES!  NO EXCEPTIONS! -15 points if late!
