Title of your Paper in Upper and Lower Case (Centered, not Bold)



Title of your Paper in Upper and Lower Case (Centered, not Bold)

Type your introduction here and remove the instructions.. The introduction should begin with an attention grabber and end with your working thesis statement. Remember to employ an objective tone by applying only 3rd person point of view (no 1st: I, me, my, we, our, us, mine) or 2nd: you, your person point of view).


Begin to type the body of your paper here. Use as many paragraphs as needed to cover the content appropriately. As noted in the Lecture’s outline, the context section should include potential qualifiers, and definitions. It is essentially background information that provides your audience with the context needed to understand your claim.

1st Pro-Point

Begin with a topic sentence written in your own words that presents your grounds. Next, apply the evidence/warrant.  Signal phrases are highly recommended to introduce new sources (ex: According to Dr. John Smith, head physician at the Mayo Clinic…). Cite your sources in APA format via parenthetical citations. Follow through with a few sentences examining the evidence and connecting it back to your main point.  Strive for a minimum of 5 developed sentences in a college level paragraph. Remember to refer back to the outline in our Week 2 Lesson if you need to review the structure of the paper.

Repeat this process for your 2nd and 3rd Pro-Points, dedicating a paragraph to each.


Papers should end with a conclusion. Unpack your thesis (do not copy/paste it) and apply a concluding technique. It should be concise and contain no new detail. No matter how much space remains on the page, the references always start on a separate page.
