Soccer Paper. Write about how soccer helps to change people’s mind about integration of “foreigners” in the a soccer team.
Here is a list of key details: 5-6 pages, set 1-inch margins on all sides, double-spaced, 12 pt font size (usually Times New Roman). Add headers with page numbers at the top-right corner of the page, Introduction. Therefore, shortly outline the topic, provide the necessary background information. However identify a strong thesis statement or a key argument.
Conclusion: summarize the essay. Don’t introduce any new facts or citations. You should have a reference list/bibliography with all your sources and things you cited (see MLA (Links to an external site.), Chicago (Links to an external site.), etc.) at the end of the research paper. Use the library, google scholar, encyclopedias, newspapers, journal articles, government agencies, our texts.
There are three different ways to write a research paper: analytic, interpretive, and synthetic (you do not have to specify why one you will write).
aims at recreating the focus, strategy/goal (intent), and information of one particular text. Additionally, you as the analyst of the text, track the text’s logical structure and message. Your job is first to represent the claims made by a particular text as the text itself argues (that is, by tracking its own logic structure and data-gathering strategies, not just its message). Who would profit from this argument, or be harme-d by it, and thus would be interested in it?
sets up a comparison/contrast between two (or more) texts. Its focus is the/an issue share-d by the two texts; its two columns of data must be strictly parallel, as necessarily reflects a compare/contrast logic. However, it is up to you, the analyst, to specify on which grounds and to what end the comparison will be carried out.
uses one text (or point of view or established argument) to read another. That is, you take up the point of view of one text, and “read” the other as it would lead you to do.Setting up an interpretive précis places a still higher burden on you as analyst than does the synthetic précis: you must specify the focus and then the goal or purpose that will be realized by applying that lead to another text. The interpretation you are setting up will not be particularly successful if the lead text is not represented fairly and systematically.
