Your ideas should be original!) Before writing: -Decide on the main thesis of the paper. (What you are trying to prove? This may change over the course of the writing process.) To write an effective paper you must make an Argument. Original ideas (no regurgitation) -Decide what evidence you are going to use. You have limited space. Use it well. Structure: -Title———– Catch the reader’s attention. -Introduction- Begin the paper by stating your thesis in a clear powerful manner State your argument! Explain what you are arguing, but do not use evidence or examples yet. -Body———–Prove you argument, using examples and specifics from the various readings. Focus on proving your thesis with both ANALYSIS and EVIDENCE (Evidence: names, dates, facts, #s, quotes, examples) -Conclusion—Do not just restate your thesis, drive the nail into the coffin of your argument. Avoid new information, you are trying to sum up your points here. Flow: -When you have finished writing: Change the font / Print it off / Read the paper out loud This will trick your mind into thinking you have never seen the text before and help you catch mistakes. -or- Have someone else read over it. -Use spellcheck. ****Check your Grammar.**** You will lose credit for grammatical mistakes. -Read for the message. Ask yourself: “What did I prove here?” If your essay argues something different than your introduction states, then go rewrite the introduction. (I do this on a regular basis.)
