Course Project: Final Paper
I had done week 6 draft which is attached ,now need final paper which is the carryon of week 6 draft .
This week you are required to submit your final paper. Your final paper should be 9-10 pages, and use 5 academic resources. It must be impeccably cited and formatted. End references are required, and APA (except for the cover page–not required) should be followed.
Research Paper (WK6 Assignment – Draft & WK8 Assignment – Final Paper)
All of the assignments thus far have been in preparing you to write the research paper you will submit as your main Course Project.
As you prepare to submit your course projects Drafts, here are some tips and reminders that will help you do well:
• Writing should be in 3rd person and be objective. There should be no 1st person references to yourself (‘I believe’, ‘I think’, personal stories/anecdotes, etc.), neither should it speak directly to the reader (‘when you look at this you will see’, ‘you might think’, etc.). This is a formal research paper in which a thesis is stated and then the argument is backed up by the use of scholarly writings.
• Do not use passive language (‘it is known’, ‘it has been seen’, ‘history has shown’, etc.). There must be a real and specific subject carrying out the action, and if you are stating it, you should be able to prove it.
• Do not use broad stereotypes or platitudes (‘most people think’, ‘everyone knows’, ‘throughout history’, etc.). These are based on assumption and are usually un-documentable. Be specific in your writings.
• To avoid plagiarism, in-text citations are required for all references including those paraphrased. For direct quotes, quotation marks are also required. If you need help on citation of specific types of sources in the APA format, a quick google search of ‘APA Format’ will bring up the OWL Guide which is a fantastic reference.
• If you have trouble with spelling and/or grammar, be sure to leave enough time to have someone else help proofread your work for you. Spelling and grammar are worth 25 points (20% of possible points). This is an area where I loathe deducting points, but all too often have to simply because students have not paid attention to things like noun/verb agreement and tense.
• Papers may have no more than 30% similarity rate. Should your paper come in above that number, you may edit and resubmit as many times as you need to until the due date – you can see exactly what text is word for word on the Originality tab of TurnitIn. If anyone has questions about how this works, I have put a short guide in Doc Sharing that outlines how to use it. If you have read that and are still having trouble, please contact me as soon as possible so we can arrange a call and I can help.
• Please be sure to highlight your thesis with bold text.
• Do not include a cover page.
• Do not include your annotations. This information can be used, but needs to be incorporated into your argument logically and eloquently with good transitions rather than copied and pasted in the format you have already submitted.
• Note* – the length requirement for the draft is 5-7 pages and the requirement on the final paper is 9-10 pages. This is a structure set up by the school rather than me. Personally, I think it makes more sense to write the whole thing for the draft, receive feedback on it, and then edit as necessary, rather than trying to add 50% new material -after- feedback. You are more than welcome to submit the whole thing at the draft phase and then simply make appropriate edits for the final if you like.
REMEMBER, THE FINAL PAPER IS DUE BY MIDNIGHT ON SATURDAY OF WEEK 8.
