The only online sources you are allowed to use are peer-reviewed journal articles, not personal Web sites or Wikipedia.

You will need to develop an argument and original thesis statement for your research essay. Clearly identify the thesis statements in the two peer-reviewed journal articles you are using in your essay and use them as models for writing your own thesis statement. You should read the articles not simply for information, but with an eye on analyzing the argument. You may agree, disagree, or partially agree and partially disagree with the arguments of the articles you use. Also be sure to refer to relevant passages from the textbook. You need to provide an in-text parenthetical reference when you are quoting directly (quoted material must be enclosed between quotation marks) and even when you are paraphrasing the views of others.
