BOOK STUDY ISSUES

1. You must upload your paper to turnitin.com by 7:30am on the due date.  You must also turn in a hard copy.

2. If you are absent you must email the paper to samantha.saldanha-kuncharam@sbschools.org or it is LATE.

3. Quotations - "........." (pg #).     You must introduce and explain quotes and embed them well within sentences.

4. TRANSITIONS between paragraphs - relate and connect ideas to each other (avoid simple words like "First" and "In Conclusion")

5. NO 1st PERSON (I, my, we, our, us) or 2ND PERSON (you, your)

6. NO CONTRACTIONS

7. Relate book study topics to characters and plot of your book (give specific examples from the book)

8. Clear THESIS telling your topic(s) of discussion

9. Create YOUR OWN TITLE - do not use the book's title.  DO NOT UNDERLINE or ITALICIZE your own title.

10. Paragraphs should never be more than a page long.

11. Only works of fiction should be referred to as NOVELS.  Non-fiction, biographies, and memoirs are NOT NOVELS!

12. Non-fiction, biographies, and memoirs should be written in past tense as they are historical.  They are about events that already happened.

13. Long quotes that take up more than 3 lines need to be separated from the body of the paragraph - single space and indent both sides.

14. The default alignment for any paper is to the left.  DO NOT CHANGE THIS.  DO NOT CENTER YOUR PARAGRAPHS.

 

 

 

 

 

RESEARCH PAPER ISSUES

1. Must always cite sources for numbers

2. Subject-Pronoun agreement - ("One may learn that they are wrong" - INCORRECT) ("One may learn that he is wrong" - CORRECT)

3. Affect (verb) vs. Effect (noun)

4. Lead - past tense is "led"

5. DO NOT START sentences with conjunctions - "and" "but" "or" "so"

6. Avoid use of the word "thing" - many better words out there

7. Capitalize "West" and avoid use of the phrase "Third World." It is called the developing world.

8. The correct way to write decades is 1990s....NOT 1990's

9. Plural vs. Possessive - (The Romanov's were the last rulers of Imperial Russia - INCORRECT) (The Romanovs were the last rulers of Imperial Russia - CORRECT)

10. Avoid contractions

11. DO NOT USE 1st or 2nd person

12. YOU NEED A TITLE

13. Long quotes that take up more than 3 lines need to be separated from the body of the paragraph - single space and indent both sides - and do not use quotation marks for these.

14. You must ITALICIZE titles of books and magazines - DO NOT UNDERLINE

15. Paragraphs should never be more than a page long

16. DO NOT start sentences with numbers

17. WORKS CITED LIST - should be in alphabetical order, Do NOT NUMBER EACH ENTRY, double space, indent all lines of each entry after the first line

18. When citing a website, you should cite by the Author first, the title second if no author - never the website itself.

19. Acronyms - always write out first and put the abbreviation in parenthesis; then you can start using abbreviation after that

20. Every day vs. everyday - every day is means each day; everyday occurrence is an adjective

21. "Like" vs "Such as" - "such as" sounds more sophisticated to use when giving examples or explaining further

22. PROOFREAD, PROOFREAD, PROOFREAD!!!!!!!!!!

23. "More and more" or "less and less" - One is enough, do not need to write it twice!!
