For more help see Paradigm On-line Writing Assistant

and / or the

Sociology-Anthropology Writing Guide

If you use a title page with Modern Language Association (APA) conventions, it should look something like this. Papers following American Psychological Association (APA) standards would include this information double-spaced and centered in the middle of the page.

[more information on an Introduction]

For example, put your paragraph(s) summarizing the Texas A & M WebSite (Anthropology in the News), or whatever subject you are writing on, here.

Put a transitional statement about finding a item of interest here that's a good example of some current trend or new discovery.



[Give this section an interesting subtitle, something other than "Body"]

Describe and discuss your chosen topic(s) here. (If you do a comparison / contrast paper you will need more than one topic, otherwise a single topic is fine.) Use some form of organizational structure. The "Journalist's Questions," Who,What, When, Where, How and Why are often helpful.

Use the Paradigm Online Writing Assistant if you do not have much experience writing college papers.




Put your conclusions here.
