ASSIGNMENT OVERVIEW & PURPOSE
This short paper is designed to help students stay on track during the research process and to begin work on their final paper. Students should have completed most of their research and reading before submitting this paper. The content of this paper can be used directly in the final product, and would not be considered an act of self-plagiarism. Because this paper requires full MLA/APA formatting, this will be an opportunity to practice using these formatting styles and receive feedback.
