  • It was exactly what I was needing as the students had no idea about formating papers to academic expectations and they found the info QUITE HELPFUL as a guide to get them thinking.

    9. 9. Suggested Approach in Writing the INTRODUCTION: 1. Open with background information, such as an observation, historical perspective, quotation, or statistics. 2. Lead into a statement of the problem or concern which led to the research and writing of the paper. 3. Close with the thesis in the last paragraph and transition into the body. Note: the thesis can be the last sentence in the INTRODUCTION and serve as the transition into the body of the paper.

    11. 11. Body Text •Avoid “orphans,” beginning a new paragraph at the end of one page with only one line. •Avoid “widows,” ending a paragraph on a new page with only one line.

    13. 13. Footnote • As the exact words of another author have been used, this must be acknowledged by using quotation marks and a number. • When quoting from a book, you must include: name of author, title of book, place of publication, publisher’s name, date of publication, and the page number of the specific quotation. • When references to the same work follow each other without any intervening reference … the abbreviation “Ibid.” is used (followed by a period and the page number).
    14. 14. Footnote (cont.) • To write a footnote for an article or statement in a journal, the following format should be used: Ken Hatt, “Probation and Community Corrections in a Neo- Correctional Era,” Canadian Journal of Criminology 27 (July 1985): 299. • For an unsigned article in an encyclopedia, the footnote should look like this: Encyclopedia Britannica, 14th ed., s.v. “Slang.” When citing from any alphabetically arranged reference work such as a dictionary or encyclopedia, it is best to give the title of the article preceded by “s.v.” (which means “under the word”)
    15. 15. Footnote (cont.) • Internet references Needed information includes the following: author(s) if given, title of page, web site, sponsoring organization, revision date, medium (web page), URL and access date.
