Welcome! This research guide was created for students in Prof. Mallory's English 101 class. This guide is a customized resource for this assignment.

 You are required to write a research assignment in the form of a critical essay. This assignment requires an integration of secondary sources to support your discussion on the topic "Under what circumstances and conditions should children work?"

You are required to research the history of child labor in the United States, including the development of child labor laws. Research articles from the web and library databases about child labor to help support your answer.

Sources must be cited and documented using MLA (9th ed.) format.


If you have any questions about research or citations, please feel free to contact me at
