The Paper’s Question ( Question and Purpose 1page)
In this section develop your paper’s question and purpose.
· ☐ State that the scope of the paper is limited to your one (1) element/issue using the following phrase:
· ☐ Say why this one (1) element is important to you.
· ☐ After you have made this clear, state your main question. This question should be specific enough so you can realistically solve a problem in 10 pages. Otherwise, the scope of the paper is too broad.
· ☐ “The main question, therefore, I am trying to answer is…”
In this section you want to inform what your are trying to achieve. Begin with:
· ☐ “The purpose of this paper is to…”
· ☐ State the reason for the paper and what you hope to achieve…. state what your goals are.
· ☐ Part of your purpose is to gather information that answers or confirms the paper’s question, towards making recommendations to solve the decision-making issue you identified.
Response to Challenges in Decision-Making (6 to 7 pages)
This is the critical analysis part of your paper.
· ☐ You need to bridge your Question and Purpose to the analysis section of your paper.
Start this section :
· ☐ “As stated earlier the scope of this paper is limited to answering the question -…. [insert question]…… We asked this question with the purpose of ………..”
· ☐ Begin the critical analysis of the chapter by briefly re-phrasing what you wrote in your Introduction about the Chapter.
· ☐ This is where you do your critical analysis of only the one (1) issue/question you identified. This is where you use the research you did on at least six (6) other authors.
· ☐ Gather facts only from the chapter and six (6) other literary sources that relate to your one (1) issue. Since your scope is limited to one issue you will need many outside references to support your arguments.
· ☐ From the facts/literature gathered, write about what all the other authors say about your question
· ☐ Make sure you cite all of the other authors correctly. You must give proper credit to each author you use in your paper. See APA on how to cite authors.
· ☐ After step 3, state your own personal opinions. Explain what you think about the issue, and what you think of the problem.
· ☐ Support your opinion with examples and other authors’ writings.
· ☐ Again, make sure you cite correctly. This is an especially important part of the paper for me.
· Use the following phrases:
· ☐ “It is our opinion that ….”, “we believe that ….” or “we think ….”, “we are of the opinion that….”
· ☐ “To support our argument, we provide the following example:” “For example …..”, “The following example supports our idea that…..”
· ☐ Make good and realistic recommendations on how to possibly fix things the issue you are writing about.
· ☐ Recommendations can come from the chapter, the other references or from your own thoughts.
· ☐ Make sure you cite correctly.
· Use phrases like……
· ☐ “We recommend ….”, “We make the following recommendations …..”
Final Thoughts and Conclusion (2 pages)
This is where you conclude and summarize your ideas and thoughts written above.
· ☐ Start your Conclusion by restating your question and purpose by saying:
· ☐ “ We began this paper by asking the question, [insert question]” Further, our purpose was to [insert purpose]”
· ☐ State whether you successfully answered your question or not by saying:
· ☐ “Based on our analysis, we were able to successfully answer our paper’s question.”
· ☐ “ In summary our analysis shows that ……”
· ☐ You must now conclude. This is your final paragraph. Conclude by using the following phrase:
· ☐ “To conclude, we are of the opinion that to resolve the issue identified in our analysis we make the following recommendations: ……….”
· ☐ It is often good to end with some ‘wise’ final closing sentence by quoting something that relates to your paper.
Citations and references are extremely important in the body of an academic paper.
· ☐ Provide a reference for each additional source you used. Although, the minimum requirement is six (6) additional references, having more adds credibility to you work. It is important that the names cited in the paper match the references in this last section. It is important that I can distinguish between your original thoughts and the thoughts of other authors. All sources must be given their proper credit.
· ☐ Minimum six (6) additional
· ☐ Reference the chapter used from
The Harvard Press Review Book.
· ☐ Please consult and latest version of the APA writing guidelines.
