Best Practices

The following are the best practices in preparing this paper.

Cover Page – Include who you prepared the paper for, who prepared it, and the date.

Table of Content – List the main ideas and sections of your paper and the pages in which they are located. The illustrations should be included separately.

Introduction – Use a header on your paper. This will indicate that you are introducing your paper. The purpose of an introduction or opening:

Introduce the subject and why it is important.

Preview the main ideas and the order in which they will be covered.

Establish the tone of the document.

Include in the introduction an overview of what you are going to cover in your paper and the importance of the material.

Body of Your Report – Use a header titled with the name of your project. Example: “The Case of Jack the Ripper – An Enduring Mystery.” Then proceed to break out the main ideas. State the main ideas, state major points in each idea, and provide evidence. Break out each main idea you will use in the body of your paper. Show some type of division like separate sections that are labeled, separate groups of paragraphs, or headers. You would include the information you found during your research and investigation.

Summary and Conclusion – Summarizing is similar to paraphrasing but presents the gist of the material in fewer words than the original. An effective summary identifies the main ideas and major support points from the body of your report. Minor details are left out. Summarize the subject matter and research results. Additional hints on preparing the best possible project.

Apply a three-step process of writing: Plan, Write, and Complete.

Prepare an outline of your research paper before you go forward.

Complete a first draft and then go back to edit, evaluate, and make any changes required.

Use visual communication to further clarify and support the written part of your report. Example graphs, diagrams, photographs, flowcharts, maps, drawings, animation, video clips, pictograms, tables, and Gantt charts.

Make sure you give the authors of any material you use proper acknowledgement by the use of in-text citations, and include them on the works cited Reference page.

Work Cited – Use APA format
