2000-2500 words (you can see this count in the lower left of your Word document)

Put your name, date and HST 208 in the upper left corner of the first page.
Put your name and page number in the upper right corner (use headers/footers)
Center your title in quotations (i.e. “A Woman and a Movement – Anne Hutchinson and Witchcraft”)

(Links to an external site.)
Must use AT LEAST two primary sources AND two secondary sources other than your textbook. You may use more than two of each, but you may not use less than two primary sources AND two secondary sources.
I. THE INTRODUCTION: The introduction for this paper should be one short paragraph (3-5 sentences). Its purpose is to: (1) set out the problem to be discussed; (2) define the sources you will use to explore the problem (4) state your thesis (what you want to learn from these sources).
II. THE BODY: This constitutes the bulk of your paper. Here is where you provide a history of the women and their time period, contextualize them within the time frame, and then analyze them (in conjunction with each other or with the movement). Be sure to analyze the sources, and see how they substantiate (or fail to substantiate) your thesis.
III. CONCLUSION: This is usually one paragraph long, and briefly recapitulates your thesis, with a summary of your findings. The first sentence of the concluding paragraph is a clear, specific re-statement of thesis. The conclusion should do more than simply re-state the argument. It also suggests why the argument is important in the bigger scheme of things, or suggests avenues for further research, or raises a bigger question.
On a separate page at the end, include the bibliography in MLA Format:
