  • In contrast to the conclusions of the Warren Commission, the United States House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) concluded in 1978 that Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. The HSCA found the original FBI investigation and the Warren Commission Report to be seriously flawed. While agreeing with the Commission that Oswald fired all the shots which caused the wounds to Kennedy and Connally, the HSCA stated that there were at least four shots fired (only three of which could be linked to Oswald) and that there was a high probability that two gunmen fired at the President. (“Who Shot JFK” 56-58)

what goes in the parentheses
What goes in the parentheses?
  • Author’s last name and page number if you have it
  • Author’s last name only if no page number
  • If no author, then article title in quotes and page number (if there is one)
  • If not author or article, then book title italicized and page number

NEVER USE COMMAS UNLESS CITING MULTIPLE PEOPLE’S LAST NAMES!!!!

writing paragraphs
Writing Paragraphs
  • Organized around one “controlling” idea that is usually stated in a topic sentence
  • Made up of supporting sentences that develop the main idea
  • Typically 5-8 sentences
  • Topic Sentence: doesn’t have to be the first sentence (you can begin a paragraph with details that build up to a summary topic sentence)
  • Topic Sentence formula: topic + something particular about the topic
  • You should always be able to find a topic sentence in a paragraph!
