((((*INTRODUCTION AND BODY PARAGRAPHS ARE COMPLETE! MUST COMPLETE LAST PORTION OF ESSAY.*))))
Final Installment (50 points): Your paper as a whole, should be a study of your choice musicians life, and their relevance to, and impact on the music world. Any parallels you can make that point to connections your musicians has to social issues from their time, especially those we are still struggling with, would be very important to bring up. Here is how you should build your paper:
Title and Name – Don’t forget these! They’re important!!
Introduction – The paper should begin with an introduction describing the person you chose, why you chose him/her, and stating your specific thesis (in bold print). *THIS IS COMPLETE* *THIS IS COMPLETE* *THIS IS COMPLETE*
Body of Paper – Use your Installment #2 as a guideline and begin by elaborate on the analysis you have already provided. If you follow that format, and continue to elaborate, you will naturally build the body of your paper. The body of the paper will also consist of background research on the music and culture pertaining to your chosen individual. *THIS IS COMPLETE*
Conclusion – The paper should end with a conclusion that revisits the original thesis, highlights what you learned through your research about the person you chose, and how the experience has impacted or altered your views about jazz, culture, and the world around you. The conclusion should be mostly in your own words, and it should revisit the original thesis, highlight what you learned as a result of your research and interview, and describe in detail how the experience has affected your opinions or views of jazz and how it relates to the world around you.
Bibliography – You must include a bibliography, showing that you used a variety of resources with at least 4 articles, books, and encyclopedias. You must include at least one of each of those. A good resource to start with is Oxford Music Online (http://library.calstate.edu/northridge/databases/proxy/20).
By university standards, this paper is supposed to be a minimum of 2,500 words minimum (not counting the bibliography), double spaced, in a common 12-point font. I, however am a firm believer in content, so as long as this is a well-researched, well-written paper, that shows that you learned as much as possible about your topic, then I believe that anywhere between 1,500-2,500 words is acceptable. So don’t feel obligated to meet that 2,500 quota. Content is the most important! If you paper is thin and it is obvious you did not put in any effort, your grade on paper will be marked down substantially.
Any discoveries of plagiarism will result in a failing grade for the paper and for the course. Please cite your sources and give credit where credit is due.
