For your last essay you are going to write a longer version including outside research of your first two essays. The subject of this essay will be some aspect of HG Wells’ novel.
Your essay must be at least five full pages long not counting a title page or works cited page. You must include at least 4 outside sources from either Galileo databases or books from an academic library (no websites). The novel does not count as one of the four sources since you have to use direct quotes in support of your thesis. You must also use MLA format for all citations within the essay and on your works cited page. Use a 12 point legible font. Double space your work. All essays must be typed.
