Battle of Kadesh

The second paper is a short research paper on one of the civilizations we will cover before the midterm.You must choose one subject and write a 1,000 to 1,500 word paper on the subject (roughly 3 to 5 pages).Throughout your academic and future careers, you will be expected to assimilate large quantities of information from various sources and compile the information into a more manageable form. In college, this process requires the writing of research papers.In this class, you will write 1 small research paper (1,000 to 1,500 words). This paper is small enough to avoid overwhelming you, but it will give you valuable experience in writing future, more extensive projects, including your comparative paper. The comparative paper is to be 1,500 to 2,500 words in length.Citation Format: You must use a recognized citation format for the research papers. It is your responsibility to learn a format if you havent already learned one another course. I will deduct 20 points from your grade for each paper if the sources are not documented in an approved citation format.Plagiarism: I reserve the right to examine every paper for plagiarism. If you copy an exact quote from a source, you must place that material in quotation marks and list the source. If you paraphrase material, again, you must list the source. Any suspected acts of plagiarism may be submitted to the Dean for academic misconduct, with a suggested penalty of 0 on the paper.Some students wonder why this course emphasizes writing rather than examinations. Writing prepares you for your future career far more than an examination. Also, you will learn far more about your subject by writing a paper than you will ever learn from a quiz.
