Writing Good School Term Papers Was the Only Way We Could Keep Her in College
My best friend Vanessa and I were slackers in college. I will totally and freely admit to it. I didn’t care. Well I cared. I usually went to all my classes. I always did my homework and met with my professors regularly. But the truth is writing school term papers are always came very easy to me. Vanessa and I were pretty much on the same page when it came to that. We were both pretty smart people who never really had to try to hard to make things work for us. But we had a third roommate, Barbara. I always felt badly for her. She worked so hard all the time but just never seemed to get it together. I would say Barbara earned hard C’s but Vanessa and I always got easy A’s. It honestly just didn’t see fair. When we would go out and party all night Barbara would stay home and work hard going to bed at midnight so she could study. Senior year Barbara had an especially hard time. She told us if she didn’t get her grades up she would lose her scholarship and have to leave school. Vanessa and I knew we needed to help her with her school term papers as soon as possible. We came up with the the following tips to help her.
1.Consider term-papers-writer.com for all of your term and research paper needs. It is a great site full of funny and informative blogs. For a fee they will even write your paper for you. They offer unlimited amendments and twenty-five percent of your first order. If all else failed Barbara could always do this.
2.A basic school term paper includes an introduction, body and conclusion. The introduction introduces the paragraph to to the audience. It briefly describes the main points and the thesis is introduced. The body goes into detail on each point you have made. Allot one paragraph for each point and have one citation per idea. The last paragraph the conclusion should just sum up the paper and reiterate all the points you just made. Seems like a simple concept but Barbara had a really hard time grasping this.
3.Do some good research on your paper. The best tip on doing research is to just read. Read everything you can get your hands on that pertains to your topic. That is the only way to become an expert on the topic you are writing about. Focus on quality books and journals. Internet sites are great but they are often missing information.
4.Skimming is also a great art when it comes to writing a school term paper. Learn to read everyone other word and train your eye to pick out the key points in each paragraph you are reading.
5.Learn how to site. There are two main citation methods, MLA and APA. It is worth it to learn how to use both the key 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:
Vanessa and I worked around the clock with Barbara to help her write great term papers for school. It was such a struggle trying to get her to grasp some of the basic ideas. But eventually she got it and was able to keep her scholarship.
