Once you have read the book, you can write your report. The report should provide an overview (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. of what the book is about and then supply your analysis (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and assessment (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. of some of the issues discussed. If it is not possible to discuss all the issues covered by the author in detail, select a few issues that relate to our course and describe the author’s viewpoints (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and your reaction to them. Do you think the points made are valid (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. or not? Why? In particular, be alert for places where the author has shown bias (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. in the choice (or avoidance (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.) of evidence or examples. Whenever possible, try to supply your own examples or counterexamples (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..

The written report should be at least 1800 words and no more than 2000 words (not counting the first page header and any Works Cited section). Pages should be printed double-spaced with sequential page numbers appearing in the upper righthand corner of each page (except the cover page, if present).

An informal style of citation is all that is required for this paper. The title and author of the book about which you are writing should be clearly stated within the first paragraph of your paper. Subsequent citations to this book can simply be page numbers enclosed in parentheses. If you choose to cite other resources (books, articles, web sites, etc.), provide a Works Cited list at the end of your paper listing any additional resources alphabetically by authors’ last name. These entries should include sufficient information to allow the reader to identify and obtain the resource if so desired. Citations to any of these works should consist of the author’s last name and (if appropriate) a page number and be inserted as needed within your paper.

Note that plagiarism (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. is unacceptable and will not be tolerated (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Taking another’s work and misrepresenting it as your own is plagiarism, and in academic communities such as UNH plagiarism is a very serious offense. As a result, it is extremely important when writing papers to ensure that the majority of the paper is written in your own words. Simply copying someone else’s work and changing a few words here and there is not putting things in your own words. To put an idea into your own words, you need to absorb it as a thought and understand it well enough to express it yourself using words that are mostly different from those of the idea’s originator (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. And even when doing that you are required to indicate via a citation the source of the idea in order to avoid giving the impression that the idea is your own. When writing a paper, it is permissible to copy directly from a source without putting the passage into your own words, however in doing so it is extremely important to indicate that the words are those of another writer, not your own. To accomplish that, you must either surround the copied passage in quotation marks (if it’s three lines or less) or set it off as a block of text indented noticeably more than the surrounding text (if it’s longer than three lines), and you must cite the source of the quotation immediately following.
