Tips for writing a research paper
<

<

This is a research paper. It requires that you seek out the scholarship of others. Most of the topics that you can choose from allow some latitude in the individual student’s approach to the topic. However, your paper must be organized in a manner that your reader clearly understands what you are saying.
<

<

The introductory paragraph provides the concept that is the subject of your paper. It should include a thesis statement that presents the argument of your paper and specifies how you will prove this argument. For example, if you want to argue that tiles covered the entire surface of the al-Aqsa Mosque in 1912 but they were blown up by the British, how will your prove this? You need to tell your reader this information.
<

<

The body of your paper, or the paragraphs between the introduction and the conclusion, contain the evidence to support your thesis statement. Your paper should be directed towards an intelligent reader. Each paragraph should be a coherent unit with a topic idea, each sentence should relate to the one it precedes and follows. The introductory sentence of each paragraph should state the main theme of the paragraph, the concluding sentence may summarize it. As you edit your paper check each paragraph to make sure that you have not included material in one paragraph that would be more appropriate in another. Also make sure that you are not including irrelevant information. The body of your paper should flow in a coherent manner while convincing your reader of the validity of your argument.
<

<

The conclusion is the conclusion. It is not the time to introduce new material or ideas. Rather, briefly summarize your principal arguments, referring back to your thesis statement, and explain how your analysis extended the readers understanding of the problem or topic.
