• Papers may have no more than 30% similarity rate. Should your paper come in above that number, you may edit and resubmit as many times as you need to until the due date - you can see exactly what text is word for word on the Originality tab of TurnitIn. If anyone has questions about how this works, I have put a short guide in Doc Sharing that outlines how to use it. If you have read that and are still having trouble, please contact me as soon as possible so we can arrange a call and I can help.
• Please be sure to highlight your thesis with bold text.
• Do not include a cover page.
• Do not include your annotations. This information can be used, but needs to be incorporated into your argument logically and eloquently with good transitions rather than copied and pasted in the format you have already submitted.
• Note* - the length requirement for the draft is 5-7 pages and the requirement on the final paper is 9-10 pages. This is a structure set up by the school rather than me. Personally, I think it makes more sense to write the whole thing for the draft, receive feedback on it, and then edit as necessary, rather than trying to add 50% new material -after- feedback. You are more than welcome to submit the whole thing at the draft phase and then simply make appropriate edits for the final if you like.Investigate the history of slavery and discuss the ways in which history impacts contemporary society

Slavery ramifications are still evident in the contemporary society, even though it was ended many centuries ago; for instance through racial inequalities.
