You will write the rough draft (first two pages and works cited page) of your research paper. In order to complete this, you first need to decide if you are going to turn your analytical paper 1 or analytical paper 2 into the research paper. You may wish to write on your first analytical paper, as you have already received feedback.
I would select the paper (Analytical Paper 1 or 2) that you are more comfortable with and the paper which you can find secondary sources to support your ideas. Your secondary sources must come from the MGCCC databases. In order to locate your sources, you will have to login into the MGCCC databases from the college library page. Then, click find articles. After clicking find articles, click English Literature and then scroll down to Academic Search Complete (Ebsco) The login credentials are magn0122 and learn2! Once you reach the search page, click the box “Full-text” and “Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals” under “Limit your Results” Make sure a check mark appears in each of these boxes. After doing so, you can just key in your search terms and locate the pdf’s or full-texts of the articles.

These databases will actually cite your sources for you; you will see a “Cite” button/link on the right-hand side of the page. In other words, all you have to do is to copy and paste that citation into your works cited page (when you copy your citation from the database, right-click using your mouse, and then, click keep text only when you paste that citation into your Word document. After doing so, please format your citation correctly, which is MLA documentation style. Your works cited page should have four secondary sources, and you should cite the short story or poems on the works cited page as well. To cite your textbook, enter the following information:
Last name, First name. “Title of Short Story or Poems.” Title of Anthology. Ed. Editor’s Name(s). Edition.
City of Publication:Publisher, Year. Page range of entry. Print.
You must include your four secondary/research sources from the MGCCC as well as your textbook source (format above) on your works cited page. A sample works cited page is located at the end of the annotated research paper.Preview the document
You have already written your argument, so you are basically adding a secondary source to each body paragraph. This quotation or paraphrase from a secondary source must come after you analyze the quotation from the literary work. After you provide the quotation/citation from the secondary source, you must analyze that quotation and its significance. You may have to rewrite and rework some of your argument. Each body paragraph must contain a quotation from the text, which you should already have. You will analyze that quotation (should already be done). Then, in you will add your quotation from your secondary source and cite it. After you insert the quotation from your secondary source, you will analyze that quotation. That’ s it!!!! For the most part, you have a large portion of the research paper done. Don’t forget you must include your works cited page as the last page of your research paper, and it must be formatted according to MLA.
I have uploaded a sample Annotated research paperPreview the document that includes a works cited page, so you can see a sample research paper. We did not talk about the “So what/who cares” aspect of the introduction, so omit it. Instead, make sure you have 4-6 sentences in your introduction with your thesis as the last sentence of your introduction. Also, with regard to the sample paper, I have color-coded the citations, so you can see how the in-text citations match up with the works cited page. Whatever you put in the parenthetical citation must match the first word of that corresponding entry on the works cited page. The citation you see for the textbook actually refers to the old edition of our textbook, so you don’t want to copy that information, as it is outdated.
Your word limit for your complete research paper is 1250-1750, excluding the works cited page. For the first two pages due Monday, you are expected to have two full pages of text complete, as well as your works cited page containing five sources. To recap, you are submitting a document that contains the first two pages of your research paper, and then the third page will consist of your works cited page.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Rose_for_Emily
