How to Write a Term Paper A well written term paper will persuasively present the student’s conclusion from research in an area of study. Every term paper must have a clearly written thesis statement that usually appears at the end of the introduction. The thesis statement will make an arguable claim about the topic, and the main sections of the paper should support this thesis. Strong thesis statements inform the reader how you will interpret the information to follow and create a roadmap for you to follow. Furthermore, you should attempt to grab the reader’s attention and make them want to finish your work. Sometimes students struggle with finding qualify resources for their topic. Because of that, I have included a few along with the topics. Keep in mind that this does not indicate that I necessarily agree with the authors, but that information from that source could help you write your paper. Be sure to use our new digital libraries as you research. Of the five kinds of sources described below, your paper should primarily or entirely use the last two types. Unpublished resources, especially blogs, webpages, and Wikipedia should generally be avoided. Popular resources are book that are written to a general audience. In Bible study, these would include devotional, Christian living, or commentaries like those of John Phillips.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
