I recommend that you print hardcopies of your sources. In the past, I’ve asked students to verify their sources, and it simplifies things greatly if you have the documentation readily available. Personally, whenever I write anything, I keep all my sources in folder or box, so I can immediately address any issue or rectify any mistake. Here is the recommended format for the paper: 1. Background: Write a brief overview of the subject discussed in your paper. For example, if your topic is criminal street gangs, discuss what street gangs are, and the problems they create for society. (1-2 page) 2. Hypothesis/Argument: Provide your thesis statement or the question you seek to answer in your paper. For example, you might write, Does the transnational scope of Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) pose a threat to homeland security?(question), or Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) poses a threat to homeland security due to the following factors: (thesis statement). 3. Analysis: Make your case. Support or explain your position by using the research or opinions of other scholars. Also, identify counterarguments and explain why they do not detract from your position. This section will make up the majority of the paper. (6 – 7 pages)
