Recommendations for Paper Writing -

Good writing reflects both organization and imagination. Papers in ENGS05 tend to become complex due to the diverse topics that you’ll need to explore. To help maintain good organization, you are strongly encouraged to:
• Create an outline before you begin writing,
• Use outline topics as headings to organize your paper. For simplicity you may wish to use the grading sections of the enclosed “Grading Rubric” as major headings for sections of your paper.
• Use the paragraph as unit of organization.

Research Resources:

Please consult the custom web research guide for Engs05 developed by Feldberg Library:

Please use line spacing of 1.5, standard margins, and 11pt or 12pt type.
