Research Paper #1 Assignment Sheet
ILLUSION: The Glass Menagerie
All three of the main characters in the play (Amanda, Tom and Laura) are trapped in various levels of illusion. In your opinion, who is the most trapped in illusion?
This research paper requires a minimum of FIVE (5) outside sources, in addition to quotes from the play. The play itself does not count as a researched source. These sources much come from an online database such as EBSCO, JSTOR, etc. It is also required that each article or book have an author’s name attached to them, so general quotes from websites such as Wikipedia are not eligible. To be absolutely clear, the following sources ARE NOT permitted for this assignment: .coms, .edus, .nets. orgs. or any general website. Again, your sources must be academic, peer-reviewed level, either from a database like EBSCO or from a credible book.
This is a full research paper. Please treat it as such. When in doubt about a source, check it out with your instructor or an AVC research librarian. Using sources without citation is plagiarism. Plagiarized papers will receive a zero. Most important tip: DON’T PROCRASTINATE!
