What You Need to Know (from your Professor or the Syllabus)

Before you begin your paper make sure you know the answer to the following questions. The answers may be in your syllabus or you may need to ask your professor:

  1. How many pages does my paper have to be?
  2. Is this an opinion paper or a research paper?
  3. If it is a research paper, what style do you want the notes and bibliography in (MLA, APA, Turabian, Chicago, or something else)?
  4. Is it okay if I have a first draft reviewed by the tutors at the Writing Center?

You can also ask your professor if you can meet with her/him to discuss the topic you want to write about and get some ideas from that conversation.
