There is NO NEED: For a title page. For a works cited page. To consult any materials other than the Radical Reconstruction: A Brief History with Documents. Please do NOT: Use block quotes (a block quote is a quote that is more than two full lines). Over quote (there should be no more than two quotes per paragraph for the purposes of this assignment and a good rule of thumb would be to average one quote per paragraph, although not all paragraphs will have a quote). Use quotes in topic sentences. Use free-standing quotes (instead use quotes to support an idea or point and integrate quotes into the flow of your text rather than merely plopping them into a paragraph without setting them up). Footnotes: Using the footnote feature varies from program to program and version of program to version of program. When using Microsoft Word, you either click “References” or “Insert” (depending on the version) located on the toolbar, then click either “References” or “Insert Footnote” and then click “OK.”  A small “1” will appear where your cursor is located and you will be bumped to the bottom of the page (see example below).[1]  The number at the end of the citation is the page in which you took the quote or retrieved the information. Note: once you fully cite a book then you should use the abbreviated means of citing your source, known as “Ibid.”  For example: Prince noted that despite substantial differences, “Lincoln worked with congressional Republicans to pass the Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in early 1865.”[2] Because you are only using the K. Stephen Prince Radical Reconstruction book for this paper, you would use Ibid. for every citation from footnote two on…. But be sure to put the appropriate page number after the Ibid. for each citation. Click HERE Actions  to see how it looks in Microsoft WORD. Turnitin, a plagiarism detection software, is used for this assignment. See syllabus for more information on academic dishonesty.   [1] K. Stephen Prince, Radical Reconstruction: A Brief History with Documents (Boston: Bedford/St. Martin’s, 2016), 3. [2] Ibid., 10.
