How to write the term paper?
Get five or 8 articles from good, scholarly journals, and read them. Enjoy them. You will form an opinion based on the articles, and you will write an intro with a thesis.
From there, you just have to write about what each author said -- each author whose article you cite.
It is a great exercise!!
A term paper for what course? On what topic? Give us some more details to work with.
What kind of a term paper? A five paragraph essay?
I know from experience it's hard to decide what topic and subject to write about. However I learn to form ideas from reading books, articles, and newspapers! Basically I form my own opinions in my Essays by setting examples.
I would explore topics, Brainstorm what you like to write about from what Subject?
Depending on your Course, normally the instructor will give you topics to write about! Or if a topic is one of your own be sure that you get approval from your instructor before going on!
Your instructor will give you guidelines for your Essay. We do need more specific details in your assignment in order for us to help you out.
research, outline it in your head, brainstorm for a thesis, write it out, proofread it, and rewrite it to make it perfect.
I would first outline it. Outline the points you need. I usually start out with body paragraphs and then finish it up with intro and conclusion
My history teacher gave us an assignment this year that I found helpful. We had a huge paper due, but he guided us along the way. The first thing that we had due was an outline with a topic sentence for each paragraph. This helped to solidify the direction we wanted our papers to go and what points we would need to research further. We turned in a rough draft before the final was due as well. My final paper looked a lot different from the original outline with topic sentences, but it still helped to give me direction.
The best way to start writing a paper is to start writing it. It can be an outline, research notes, or even just random thoughts on the topic, but get something down on paper (or more likely the screen). Eventually this will lead you to some useful ideas, though you will have to prepared to go back and cut ruthlessly after you have finished a first draft.
Helping Yourself Write Better Essays
For some reason, this school year I've been having a lot of trouble writing essays. I turned in one particularly horrible one this past Friday just so I wouldn't get a zero. In hopes of finding new tricks, this Saturday, while helping my mom and Solei sort through books for the library book sale, I snatched myself a collection of critical essays about Shakespeare's plays. I've since begun reading the essays and taking notes in the book and have found it to help me a lot so far. In addition, I've commenced the typing up of an essay reference FAQ that I will keep in my English binder. This all gave me the idea of making a thread about how we help ourselves with our writing. I hope it'll be helpful, and I'd be glad to post my FAQ reference once it's completed if anyone else is interested. Happy posting! ;D
What a great idea!! Thank you for your contributions to this forum :) As we say "the biggest reward is helping others".
[Moved from]: Need ideas on term paper on decision analysis
hi i need some help to decide and plan a term paper based on decision analysis, business statistics
Could you explain it better? So I may try to help you! Thanks
yes, i am a dentist and i m doing masters in public policy and a term paper is to be written in the subject of statistics/ decision analysis, and i am unable to figure out some topic for this term paper as it should be based on business statistics, the subject covers mean, mode, median, variables, confidence intervals, probabilities, hypotheses testing etc
I good trick that I do is just write everything that comes to mind and outline it in chronological manners in order to prove your point..
