The failure of leadership in one Shakespearean play
Length: Your research paper should be 4-5 pages (6 pages maximum). This does NOT include the APA formatted title page and the APA reference page. Your paper will be in this order:
Please remember to include an APA formatted title page as the first page of your paper and an APA reference page as the last part of your paper. The body of your paper will be a minimum of 4 full pages and a maximum of 6 pages! DO NOT INCLUDE AN ABSTRACT.
Research Sources: Your research paper should discuss and cite a minimum of 5 but not more than 8 credible, scholarly sources (literary criticism) obtained through academic databases of the university. I suggest that you start with ESBSCO and ProQuest.
Manuscript format and length: Your paper will need to follow APA format guidelines. You will need a title page and a reference page (no abstract is required). Be sure to follow APA manuscript guidelines regarding font style and size, spacing, margins, etc.
Documentation and avoiding plagiarism: Your paper should follow APA documentation guidelines in order to avoid unintentional plagiarism. Remember that whenever you use a scholar’s words or ideas, they must be documented in your paper; otherwise, you are plagiarizing. Please document references to the play(s)/textbook as well as all information from each of your research sources.
This is how it will be graded.
