 Research Writing Tip of the Month

Begin  your research with a solid Thesis Statement. This is the question you propose to answer in the paper.  

  •   Keep it simple.
  •   Make it specific. It's easier to do research on a narrowly selected subject.
  •   Make sure your idea will work.
  •   Check with your professor about the suitability of the thesis to the assignment.
  •   Check in the library to make sure there's enough resources on your topic.
