- Make sure to follow MLA guidelines for citation and Works Cited page.
- Make sure you have a clear introduction, body and conclusion. Use at least two direct quotes in the paper. Wikipedia is not considered a legitimate outside source. When obtaining outside sources it is a good idea to use journals, scholarly articles, and literary criticism. BMCC's library is available online and there is a link to it on the homepage.

Below are a few examples should you find yourself stuck and unable to come up with a plan for this paper: When I offer a hint, it is devised to help you along in your thought process. You do not, however have to take the hint into consideration when you write your paper if you do not wish to do so; you also do not have to answer all the questions associated with the hint:

- Story of an Hour by Chopin and/or Happy Endings by Atwood: focus the paper on the theme of happiness in romantic relationships.
HINT: What argument can you make about happiness and/or romantic relationships? What are the arguments the authors are making about romantic relationships?

Remember, an argument must have two sides in order to be arguable. A thesis cannot be a fact; it must be arguable.
