-Be sure to identify the main argument, thesis, or key point of the reading i.e., what are the major points that the author wants you to understand?

ALWAYS PROVIDE SPECIFIC PAGE NUMBERS FOR ALL REFERENCES TO THE READING WHETHER YOU ARE PARAPHRASING OR DIRECTLY QUOTING SOURCES
-Do not use other sources other than the assigned reading. You may use dictionaries if unclear about complicated terms, but do not google for content and do not use the internet.
