Term paper help: specific suggestions
Are you in need of term paper help? Do you need specific suggestions to help get your paper on the right track? Are you unsure where to turn? Each part of the term paper includes certain necessities. These are a few specific suggestions that will help you in various parts of your term paper:
Title Page: Be sure to include the title, your name, the date of submission, and anything else that is required based on the formatting style your professor has assigned. Check out the font size and layout requirements.
Introduction: Include an interesting hook at the beginning of the introduction. Connect the hook with a bridge to the thesis, which should clearly state what you are trying to prove. Do not write your thesis by saying, “In my thesis, I will…”. Be sure to make your thesis arguable and interesting.
Techniques for Hooks: There are several techniques for writing a hook that gets the readers’ attention. They include writing a collection of three questions or asking one open-ended question; sharing a unique, but relatable quote; telling a short anecdote; and including interesting statistics.
Body Paragraphs: Each body paragraph needs to include a topic sentence that refers back to the thesis. Then each body paragraph needs to include several sentences that include real research-based content along with analysis. Those sentences should include transitions (next, then, also, etc.) so the readers know the relationships between the sentences. Each body paragraph should have a specific focus and you should not stray from that focus.
In-text Documentation: Each body paragraph should have paraphrased or quoted facts from your research. Paraphrased work includes knowledge that you learned from a source. Quoted work is copied word-for-word.
Conclusion: The end needs to restate the main ideas from your body paragraphs. They also need to include a restated thesis. Each conclusion should make the reader think about your term paper and what ideas are presented.
Style: Term papers should be written in the third person. Avoid using “you” or “I” or “we” unless those words appear in a quote you are using. Write using professional language and terminology.
Works Cited: Sources should be listed by the first letter of the first word in the list. Most works cited lists need to be reverse indented, but double check with your formatting instructions.
If you have other specific questions, be sure to ask your professor for clarification or visit your school’s writing lab for personalized support.
