“MLA CITATIONS” & FINAL PAPER

Paper Excerpt

…. Americans need to consider that“In 2009, the average four-year college graduate owed $24,000 in student-loan debt” (Bass).That's sustainable if a student leaves school with a degree in a high-demand field like nursing or engineering since they pay decent salaries right from the start. However, liberal arts majors tend to have a harder time finding jobs and often spend the first year, if not more, of post-college life waiting tables. These minimum wage jobs do not provide enough income to begin paying off student loans.

PRELIMINARY OUTLINE

Getting Started

PG. 15-16

  • Write a preliminary outlinelisting all of the topics you believe you will address in your paper. Put them in the order you think you will bring them up. To decide if it’s significant enough to mention, make sure you can come up with at least major focus points that include 2 sub-sections each. These must be labeled as topics, NOT paragraph 1, 2,3…
  • Example:
  • I. Steroids have a negative health effect
  • A. Physical effects (short/long term)
  • B. Psychological/Emotional effects (short/long term)
  • STUCK?
      • Think about titles for each section/sub-section.

GOOD THESIS STATEMENTS

TOPIC 1: Exorcism

ARGUMENT/THESIS: If traditional ways to treat seemingly psychotic patients fail and those patients possess symptoms of possession, an exorcism should be attempted in a controlled environment by a certified priest as a last resort to aid the afflicted.

(Major topics in prelim outline!)

thesis statements that need a little help
THESIS STATEMENTS THAT NEED A LITTLE HELP
  • Marijuana should be legalized.

(Okay, so…? There is a stance, BUT there is NO specific information to support it or a reason why it should be legalized.)

  • Air pollution has a negative effect on the environment in many different ways.

(VAGUE-CITY!!! The words “negative effect” and”many different ways” could mean a number of different things. Be specific. Being specific up front will also help make sure your paper is a manageable size for you to research and write about.)

THESIS STATEMENTS THAT NEED A LITTLE HELP
  • Eating disorders are common in athletes, with jockeys being one of the most well known.

You must take a stance on an issue. This would simply be an informational paper about eating disorders, which I don’t want. There should be ideas of your own as well as an analysis of other peoples’ ideas in the paper.)

STANDARDIZED TESTS:

  • Current tests are biased
    • Minority are at a disadvantage
    • Poor at a disadvantage (can’t pay for tutor/classes)
  • Current tests do not represent learning potential
    • Different learning styles
    • Do not account for creativity

NOTES

1)After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the government actually promoted and subsidized the growth of hemp to help in the war effort (“Hemp for Victory:).

2)”The USDA produced a film called Hemp for Victory to encourage US farmers to grow hemp for the war effort. The US government formed War Hemp Industries and subsidized hemp cultivation They subsidized over 1million acres” (Smith, 14).

3)”The Columbia History of the World states that the oldest relic of human industry is a bit of hemp fabric dating back to approximately 8,000 B.C.” (Smith, 22).

4)“C-class Mercedes-Benz automobiles have more than 30 parts made of natural fibers, including hemp” (“Vote Hemp” 5)

5)Most hemp body care products are high in Omega - 3, Omega - 6 and all 20 Essential, AminoAcids 9 of which the human body does not produce. (“Hip, Hot”, 9)

6)”From the first plantings in Jamestown when it was illegal not to grow hemp, to our founding fathers’ hemp plantations, to the hemp sails and riggings of the clipper ships that sailed the 19th century seas, to the hemp canvas-covered wagons of the pioneers headed west, to the sturdy hemp Levi’s pants of the original 49ers seeking their fortunes in the California hills, to the massive Hemp for Victory government programs of WWII, hemp has developed a long and illustrious history in America” (“Vote Hemp” 5).

7)The Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper and the finest bibles still printed on hemp-based paper (“Hip, Hot” 2)

8) DEA Harry Anslinger propelled anti-marijuna campaigns nationwide in order to eliminate competition to his friend William Hearst’s oil company (Smith, 64).

  • FACTUAL INFORMATION:
      • The term robot was not invented until 1921 when Karel Capek coined the term in the play R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots). The term comes from the word "robota," which is a Czech term for forced labor. It wasn’t until 1954 that George Devol created the Unimate, an industrial robotic arm that lifts hot metal and stacks it.
