The Research Cover Page Really Help My Paper Look More Professional and Put Together
This may sound really silly but I like to get good grades. Foreign concept huh? The truth is I want to be the best. In order to be the best you have to go above and beyond. During the middle of the school year I realized that I was becoming second best. Kelly Watkins had transferred in and she was pretty close to a genius. I had to up my game. I had to find a way to make my paper pop. I decided to catch my professors attention by writing good research papers and great research cover page. I used the following tips to help me.
1. When learning the research cover pages don’t forget the basic research paper structure. The first paragraph is the introduction, tell the audience what you are going to tell them. Be sure to include your thesis and introduce all of your mains points. The subsequent paragraphs go into detail about the main points you just brought up. A good rule of the thumb is to have one citation per point being made. Your thesis should be present in some form in each paragraph. The last section is the conclusion. You should reiterate your main points, bring up the thesis again and finish off your essay with a nice citation.
2. Termpaperwriter.org is a great site to utilize. It is filled with tons of blogs from writing a term paper on biology to writing a research paper on history. They even have blogs on research cover pages. Their articles are not only funny but very informative as well.
3.Termpaperwriter.org will even write your paper for your for a fee. They employ great writers who will are hand picked to write your paper for you. They offer unlimited amendments and a percentage off your first paper.
4. Learning how to cite is key for any paper you write. After you have the research cover page down you must learn that there are various different types of citation methods: Chicago, Harvard, MLA and APA. The APA and MLA are the most common yet the most similar. If your citations are not done correctly you will more than likely receive a failing grade. Use the key I have provided below to help you:
For APA use this:
Last name, first name. (year published).Title of Book. City published. Publisher
For the in text citation use this method:
(Last name, year, pp. numbers of pages)
For MLA use this:
Last name of author, First name of Author. Title of Book. Place Published: Publisher. Year. Print.
MLA also uses footnotes instead of in text:
5.Part of mastering a good research paper is to remember to write about what you know. Pick a topic that interest you. It can be sports, television a hobby you love or even your pet. If you are not interested in the topic you are writing about it will really come through in your paper.
6.Add a picture to your research paper cover page. Yes this may be a little controversial but add a color pic to the cover, some pertinent to the the paper of course. It will really attract your teacher’s attention.
7.A basic cover page has the title of the paper as well as the author in the middle. Bottom right should include the class, the date, and the professor’s name.
After I used these tips and to write a better paper and great cover pages for my research papers I began getting much better grades and I ended up beating Kelly for valedictorian.
