Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
The research essay is to be written in formal style, on a topic chosen from a list provided below. The essay should demonstrate your ability to research and consolidate material. You are required to consult a minimum of three sources, one of which can be The New Grove’s Dictionary of Music and Musicians, 2nd Edition, found in the reference section of the Ybor Campus library or through a web search. You may consult on-line references, but the majority of your research is to be done from the Grove’s Dictionary. In the past some students were having difficulty getting this resource, but please do your best. Copy/pasting from websites is easily detectable and will result in a failing grade for the paper and the Gordon Rule requirement. The paper is to be 4 pages in length (minimum of 1000 words) following the general guidelines given below.
