Discuss the Radiocarbon Dating in Scotland.Please make sure that the paper is double spaced and uses the attached journal article as the citation source and the source of information for the paper. A strong paper will be well organized and have a coherent thesis. Here are some ways you can develop a strong thesis: Think about the conclusions made in the article. Do you agree or disagree? Are there problems with the methods or their application? Do you think that something was overlooked in this study? Or did this article help you understand archaeological field or lab research in a new way? Form a thesis statement around the main idea that you have about this article. A strong thesis statement will do more than repeat the conclusions of the article – make sure your own opinion comes through clearly.
Your thesis should appear in your introduction paragraph, where you also state the title and author(s) of the article that you are reviewing or critiquing. Since this is an opinion paper, it is OK to state “In this paper I argue…” and to write your paper in the first person.
Following the introduction, include a 1-2 page summary of the article. The summary should focus on the parts of the article that are most relevant to your thesis. In this paper you should focus on the methods and leave out detailed information about the culture – a 1-2 sentence description is fine. While you need to briefly state what was being studied, you should include more description about how the study was conducted.
Then you should write about your opinion on this article. This is where you elaborate on your thesis idea, in about a page of text. Make sure to draw upon specific statements or examples from the article to explain why you hold this opinion.
At the end of your paper, be sure to include a complete citation so that I can find the article. For this class, we will be using the standard APA citation style..
