For this paper, you will be writing 750-1,000 words (the works cited does not count). When you submit your paper to the dropbox, it will automatically be submitted to Turnitin, and a Turnitin Originality Report will be generated. This report is accessed through the dropbox by clicking on the colored square (it might be green, blue, red, or brown) with a percentage. This percentage shows you how much of your paper is cited from secondary sources (not necessarily how much is plagiarized), so you should check each highlighted portion to make sure you are citing your sources correctly and are not plagiarizing. You may correct your paper and resubmit it as many times as you need to before the due date.
