Academic Paper First Draft
Choose a topic of interest to research, and write about it! You must include an introduction, thesis statement, supporting paragraphs, and a conclusion. Work on creating your draft paying close attention to the use of adverbs and adjectives. Utilize your text, Pocket Keys for Writers Pages 209-211 to evaluate your use of those descriptive words. Bold four adjectives and use the yellow highlight to distinguish three adverbs.
For an academic paper, it is advisable to find at least one source of reference, but not required. Use the following link to find a source if interested https://scholar.google.com/, or use Grantham’s online library (linked on the top of Blackboard).
Please see the APA Sample Paper and APA Template to format your rough draft and final paper and references.
There are a few topics that you will not be allowed to write about: anti-gay marriage, anti-gay adoption, abortion, gun control/gun rights, partisan politics, drinking age, and legalizing marijuana.
