1. Your DOCUMENTED ESSAY (that is, a paper with library references) must have a central argument and be in MLA format. See your textbooks for details.
2. You must have a focused, original topic clearly defining a specific question you will attempt to answer through research. Make sure the subject is of interest to an academic audience and will represent a solid contribution to the study of that topic. Try to pick something unique and off-beat, about which sufficient sources exist in our library. All topics must be approved ahead of time. Use OPPOSING VIEWPOINTS to choose a topic.
