Realism

Paper details:

Option 1: Realism Option: In this option, the student will clearly explain the characteristics of American Realism in literature and the significance of the movement in the American canon. In the process, he or she will choose three authors from the list below, select one work from the ENG 252 required reading schedule from each chosen author, and prove that the work is representative of American Realism. Possible authors for this assignment include: Mark Twain, Bret Harte, Henry James, Kate Chopin, Charles Chesnutt, and William Dean Howells.

In composing this paper, students must use a minimum of five sources and may use no more than seven sources. In any case, two of these sources must be from your textbook. In other words, at least two of the sources must be primary sources. The remaining secondary sources should be located from reliable locations (library, AVL, reputable website or database, etc.). Any secondary source should be evaluated using the CRAAP test document located in this week’s module to ensure the source meets reliability standards.
Note: Shmoop, LitCharts, and other such “cheat” sites are unacceptable for a two-hundred level college literature class and should not be used for research.

Students will be required to submit a Working Bibliography of potential sources as well as a formal outline in order to receive instructor feedback and guidance throughout the composition process.

All sources listed on the final bibliography must be cited in the research paper and documented on the Works Cited page according to MLA guidelines. Resources for successfully accomplishing such citation and documentation will be provided and practiced in subsequent weeks. Source material should be used sparingly as evidence to support the writer’s opinions and thesis. Source material (either quoted or paraphrased) should not exceed 20% of the total paper. In other, words the vast majority of the paper should be the writer’s original thoughts on the topic.
