Each student will research and report on a country and topic,
anywhere in the world, where Islamic Culture currently plays a role. It can be the U.S., Jamaica, Ghana,
China, Indonesia, Israel –anywhere—the Middle East, but not only the Middle East countries. We will do
this in stages. You need to do it step by step. The end product is both an oral report and a 2-3 page written
____ Introductory paragraph that identifies what your argument/thesis is (e.g., “The Ottoman Empire
produced a dynamic culture under Muslim rule that expanded military and political power, allowed
mobility to Jews and Christians as well, excelled in literature and philosophy, and produced magnificent
architecture that remains to this day.”) See how this sentence asserts an opinion and then shows the
shape and flow of the paper; each of those 3-6 points will become a body paragraph to defend the thesis
opinion. Make sure those 3-6 come in the same order as your Body paragraphs.
____ 3-6 Body paragraphs arguing those 3-6 main points that prove your thesis. Each body paragraph
starts with an assertion/thesis that your evidence in the paragraph will support. Each paragraph’s
evidence will consist of 3-5 pieces of example/evidence that you EXPLAIN, not merely list. Make sure
you analyze and explain the facts you give. Say, “This means ….” Remember to include quotations from
articles or chapters you have read. Give a citation for both direct quotes but ALSO when something you
have read backs up what you say, even if you don’t quote. (Like Ansary pages.)
____ Concluding paragraph, in different words, that summarizes what you have proven.
____ Footnotes either at bottom of each page or at end of whole essay, in either MLA or Chicago style.
_____ A useful, explanatory Title for your paper that gives a hint of your argument. Finalize this last,
after you’ve completed your argument. Be creative with your title.
_____ Final Paper must be typed, 11 or 12 pt font, 1 ½ spaces, 1 inch margins.
_____ Number the pages.
