Paper on Douglass book should be 5-8 pages typed and double-spaced (less than five FULL pages will affect grade). Font 12. One inch margins. In addition, paper should include a cover page and bibliography. Do not zip paper, cover page and bibliography, send as one file. NO OTHER SOURCES ARE PERMITTED. Cite quotes and facts as needed. Limit citations and none should be longer than one sentence. Paper should describe what it was like to be a slave in the United States as told through the experiences of Frederick Douglass. Be as thorough as possible addressing all aspects and environments of American slaves; what was it like to be a slave? Focus should be on slavery in general not Douglass (don’t ignore Douglass, just focus on slavery). One approach would be to read the book and write your paper as if you were explaining slavery to a friend who knows nothing about slavery. Personal analysis is expected, not a summary of book. Quality of writing will be a factor in determining grade. Be aware that plagiarism will result in failure and be reported to the administration. Note that papers will be checked for plagiarism. Optional: You may submit a rough draft for review before due date. Deadline for rough drafts is May 9. Be sure to specify that it is a rough draft.
