Final Project, Step 1:
Write a research paper on a topic that interests you. It can be related to any subject, in any field. Include a bibliography at the end, including all of the resources you’ve used. You should have at least one resource per page. Include the proper use of documented quotes and information within the paper.
Information within a paragraph is listed in quotations, “Information”, (Resource, page 20) then outside it parentheses with resource information. The complete listing of the resource needs to be listed in the bibliography page. An example is listed below of a bibliography.
The paper should be no shorter than three pages, not including the bibliography. Your paper should have a title page with the title of project.
With research takes dedication, time, and planning. You should start with an outline. An outline should focus on the main ideas listed with subheadings for information you wish to include in the main idea. An example of an outline is listed below.
This assignment will take a full month to complete. The ability to write research papers and to convey ideas is extremely important. Good luck!
Developing an Outline
An outline is a logical, general description; a schematic summary, an organizational pattern, a visual and conceptual design of your writing.
An outline reflects logical thinking and clear classification. An outline aids in the process of writing.
More specifically, an outline helps you organize your ideas, presents your material in logical form, shows the relationships among ideas in your writing, constructs an ordered overview of your writing, and defines boundaries and groups.
Before you begin:
Ã¢Â?Â¢ Determine the purpose of your paper.
Ã¢Â?Â¢ Determine the audience you are writing for.
Ã¢Â?Â¢ Brainstorm: List all the ideas that you want to include in your paper.
Ã¢Â?Â¢ Organize: Group related ideas together.
Ã¢Â?Â¢ Order: Arrange material in subsections from general to specific or from abstract to concrete.
Ã¢Â?Â¢ Label: Create main and sub headings.
