• Your paper should be at least three pages (that means to the very bottom of the third page at minimum).  It must be double spaced and typed in 12 point Times New Roman font.

• Begin with a strong thesis statement followed by relevant evidence from the readings and lectures.  Cite Foner as (Foner pg.#); cite the Zinn documents by the author of the document of title if the author is anonymous, for example (Ginsburg 454);  and cite the presentations/lectures as Colling + lecture/slide #, e.g. (Colling 5/42).

• In addition to the Foner text and lectures, use at least Four primary documents for evidence.  These can be found in Zinn.  They are your choice, but you must use the primary documents as significant sources to make your case.

• Do not plagiarize.  If you use any sources other than FonerZinn, or the presentations(ppt), you will fail the exam.

At least four references are from the document.
