Process to Follow in Writing a Term Paper:
1. The process of writing a term paper should be exactly the same as writing a senior honors thesis, a masters essay, a doctoral dissertation or a book.
2. There must be a THESIS. Once you begin writing, remember that you must have an opening paragraph which states your thesis.
3. Form. You will have to use footnotes at the bottom of the page, with the long footnote form. Almost any computer program will take the agony out of this. On wordperfect it is control/f7. The rule in footnoting is that you provide a citation for any direct quote, any paraphrase, or any information that is not commonly known. Of course, that is a vague rule, and anyone footnoting has to a certain extent to follow their instincts.
