Douglass Paper

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.
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
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.
