Of these, at least three must be scholarly sources, meaning they must be peer reviewed, vetted sources. These can include sources from the library databases, Alabama Virtual Library, JSTOR, or scholarly journals. Once you have met the minimum requirement of 3 scholarly sources, the remaining two sources can be any source of your choosing (however, you should still avoid using Wikipedia, Schmoop, or similar generalized web sources).
The minimum length will be 5 pages (this may include the Works Cited page). MLA format should be adhered to. Meticulous documentation, both in-text and via the Works Cited page, will be a requirement and a substantial percentage of the grade.
