Need assistance with essay for research paper
My task is a research paper about racism (three pages).
I need some hint about how to start, what to include, kind of contents.
The whole paper is not long, about fifteen paragraphs, but it’s crucial for my graduation.
Hello, I am the person who understands you. Writing long research papers (from three pages and more) can be stressful, especially for those people who do not know how to start or what to do the first. Still, I think I can help. First, you should calm down.
If it’s your graduation task, there is no doubt you have done it before, and successfully! Everything will be ok this time too! Let me start. Initially, you should think over everything you know about racism like what is it (definition), historical background, real-life examples, fighting racism, supporters of racism, and current efforts to eliminate racism. The next thing is to choose the type of paper. It can be a narrative, argumentative, or expository essay (or some other kind). Depending on the chosen type of essay, make the appropriate content.
Use information you know to create an outline. Your outline should present arguments in a logical manner. Now it’s time to start writing. Make up an introduction. The primary aim of this part is to grab your readers’ attention. You may mention why the topic is important and what you will examine throughout the paper. Be careful with the division of information.
It seems that you have enough space but, frankly speaking, three pages are not enough for such topic as racism. So, count number of words and make sure that all parts of your outline are described thoroughly. Take you outline, count the number of items. Divide that number between three pages (do not forget about introduction and conclusion).
This technique will save your time and even health (one can get really nervous when it turns out that all parts should be cut). Now you can start writing your essay. One separate paragraph should describe every point in your outline. Read everything again, and then read the introductory paragraph.
Are all questions covered?
Do you write about everything you have mentioned in the outline? Make changes if necessary. It is time to move to the conclusion. A conclusion should contain a summary of all your findings. Tell the readers that you have managed to achieve your task and that your work is useful. Do not neglect revisions. Read the work for several times. It is advisable to ask your friend or somebody else to read it too and comment on it. Make your revision efficient by dividing it into several sections — revision of grammar, content, spelling, etc. Now your paper is ready.
All you need is to start with small steps, and everything will be fine.
Racism is extremely broad topic. You have not identified what do you need. The subject of the paper also depends on your previous works on this theme. Do you write about racism in the particular country or on the world?
You can write about the historical perspective or purely current condition of this issue.
Consider writing about forms of racism in modern world too…
In my opinion, writing about the history of racism is out of date nowadays. To prove your professional interest, write about modern policies concerning racism.
What is the modern racism (is not only about being black or white, but being Mexican, Indian, male, female, whatever)?
These issues are much more relevant nowadays I suppose.
Well, racism is such a thing when white people think they are better than black people because of the color of their skin..that’s it.. nonsense but it caused a great deal of trouble.
Some of the youtube videos may be of help. Find Neely Fuller or Tim Wise. Their explanations are very easy, and they will give you a few ideas about the paper.
