ENGL11204P April 7, 2010 Pointers – Final research paper Always proofread: - use your spell-check - use your ‘search’ function intelligently E.g. “The parents’ influence ON their child’s personality is significant” Read the essay out loud to yourself: - catches errors that you miss in a silent reading Lay the essay out on a flat surface all at once and read it: - can more easily see the flow of the argument Ask yourself: - are the body paragraphs in the right order? Watch transitions between paragraphs If you still do no have a thesis, please see Prof. Pay attention to the “mechanics” of written English. - write in complete sentences - do not use “comma splice” - ensure subject-verb agreement - ensure that pronouns agree Do not use contractions Do not use colloquial English, i.e. Slang or informal English instead, write FORMAL English Spacing - double space or space-and-a-half.
