Adding a Graph or chart to your paper It’s not too hard, and it’s required!
You have information from your research, now turn it into a chart You can make a table: You can make a pie chart: decadePeoplepercent 196050,0005% 1970100,00010%
Or you can make a timeline or process/flow chart Organized crime started in the 1920s After prohibition ended, organized crime started to involve drug smuggling European and Asian criminal organizations established branches in the US In the 1970s, Heroin Smuggling from Southeast Asia was dominant
The graph must be made by you! The information in your graph should come from one of your sources You need to have an in-text citation for the information in your graph You need to introduce your graph in the body (the writing part) of your paper. For example, you can write: “In the graph below, it can be observed that immigration increased 100% in 10 years.”
Here are some more pointers: Bullet points and arrows don’t count Lists don’t count Someone else’s photographs don’t count The graphic does not count toward the page total Original data is okay The graphic must be between ¼ & ½ of a page Original photography does count as long as it is discussed in the paper
The specific guidelines for the graphic are available on the CMS website & on the North Meck Media Center Wiki North Meck Media Center WikiNorth Meck Media Center Wiki Look at your paper right now and see if you have some facts or information that could be presented in a visual form.
