Continue reading •Formatting…did you do all these? White paper, 12 point font, Arial or Times new roman. Standard margins…don’t get cute to meet the length requirement, I will deduct massively for this. Page numbers in top right corner •Length- 7-10 pages of actual text (you can do seven pages since that is what I requested) •3rd person writing style. Use He/she/it . DO NOT PUT “I, You, We, Us, etc.”. •By the end of this paper I should agree with your point of view •Important to do!!!: Define the issue. State the problem, what is going on with it? Argue your points on multiple fronts. Rebut the other side’s argument. Offer solutions/Alternatives. If you use number or percentages, use the symbol “33%”, don’t spell it out. –You need a title. There are good titles and bad titles. A good title is creative and lets the reader know what is inside. A bad title just sucks. For instance if I were to write a paper on outlawing abortion, look at the three titles •Good title- “Protecting the Rights of the Unborn: Present and Urgent”. •Bad Title- “Abortion”. •Horrible title- “Term Paper”. RANDOM PET PEEVES OF TEACHER: –You should quote throughout the paper, but I don’t grade quotes, I grade YOUR ANALYSIS surrounding the quote.  –If a quote is five lines or more you must create a BLOCK QUOTE. For a block quote, you shrink the text to size 10 font and place it in the middle of the page. Don’t give me too many block quotes –Your grade will be docked if a quote is ridiculously long just to meet the length requirement •If you are citing a source more than once, (you should because every idea not originally  your own needs to be cited), here is a shortcut. The word “Id.” means the same as the last immediate citation. –Put lots of effort into finding CREDIBLE sources. What is credible? Anything put out by government, journals, experts. News reports/articles not credible •Use the sources throughout the paper. If you don’t use them in paper, you didn’t use them. Quote if you are using their language. Cite if you are using their thought. Failure to do so is plagiarism Works Cited: •Put on its own page •Don’t bother with footnotes
