Term Paper References Can Be a Great Tool When Learning to Write Term Papers
I have a bucket list. You know a “kick the bucket list.” It’s a list of things I would like to do before I die. There are many many things on that list. I would like to own a fancy sports car. I want to rescue a few animals. I would love to Trek the Sahara Desert. Getting married and having kids is on there as well. But one thing that is pretty high on my list is to learn how to dance. I know it sounds silly but I really have little to no rhythm. It’s so frustrating. I kinda sway and clap but I have seen myself in videos and I just look like a fool. I decided to take some dance class. The teacher told us the best way to learn to dance is by example. She would stand behind me at first and I would look at her in the mirror while I moved and shaked and wiggled my hips. I still wasn’t getting it. Finally she stood in front of me and I used her as a reference when I was dancing. When I had to teach my students how to write term papers I did the same thing. I created term paper references for them to use. I wrote a bunch of basic term papers that they could refer to when they needed help writing their papers. It showed my students step by step what they would have to do to write a great term paper. They used the tips below to help them.
1. You must learn to site. This is a very important tool. If you don’t know how to site. Your grade will definitely drop at least two spots. There are many different types of citation methods. The two biggest ones are the APA and MLA methods. They are similar yet different. You can use 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:
2.When looking for a term paper reference make sure they have good sources. Most professors like a combination of good books, journals and articles as well internet articles. Try and use a good mix of all three sources. Do your best to spend some quality time in the library reading and not just skimming through periodicals ad books.
3.Consider term-papers-writer.com for all of your term and research paper needs. They are a great site filled with a lot of useful information. Their blogs are not only fun to read but informative as well. They will even write your paper for you for a fee. Their writers are all experienced with great educational backgrounds. Termpaperwriter.org is not happy unless you are. They offer unlimited amendments and free e-mail delivery. They will offer great term paper references.
4.A basic term paper reference should include an introduction, body and conclusion. The introduction introduces the paper. The body goes into detail about the points you just introduced and the conclusion sums up the paper with a nice little bow
Having a visual reference when learning how to dance really helped me get down the moves much faster and really pay attention to the way my body should move. The reference for term papers did the same for my students. They really learned a lot form getting to know various examples of term papers.
