Minimum length: 5.5 pages, double-spaced, plus Works Cited page

  • use proper Modern Language Association (MLA) formatting – this means one-inch margins on all sides and twelve point Times New Roman font
  • failure to reach the minimum length will result in a grade no higher than 70 
  • your Works Cited should include any sources/texts mentioned in your paper, and it should NOT include any that you don’t: you may, theoretically, have an infinite number of sources, but you must have at least five: at least one scholarly source and at least four others from diverse forms of media 
  • no submission without a Works Cited will pass, and no submission with a botched Works Cited will receive a grade higher than the highest possible C-plus (79)
