Titling: an essential skill in social studies

On every paper you do for this class I will expect you to follow these titling guidelines:

a) Snappy title.
b) Explanatory subtitle.

- Snappy title ex: Roiling on the Red
- tweaks a phrase from pop culture
- uses alliteration

- Explanatory subtitle ex: Mapping the Course of the Red River
- longer and detailed.

Communication in a crowded, busy world is not easy; using vivid titling is a way to stand out from the crowd.
