Victorian Term Paper Reminders…
Formatting One inch margins all around Double-spaced text throughout – Including your name, teacher, class, etc. By the way, make sure you have that in the right order Have last name and page # in the upper right corner
The Text Make sure it’s five pages None of this “four pages and one line” Yes, that will be marked down accordingly The title will be centered and that is all No extra spaces between paragraphs
Easy Things to Check Are the historical paragraphs in the right tense? Are the words spelled correctly? Did you avoid the use of contractions? – No use of don’t, can’t, wouldn’t, etc.
Works Consulted List Another must have… also out of 25 points All works must be sorted by alphabetical listing by last name of your author If the web page had no author, alphabetize by the first word of the title of the web page Ensure proper punctuation because you will be deducted (after all of the practice) This should be placed on a separate page AFTER the completion of your paper
Turnitin.com OK, almost done But you still have to submit it Those who don’t will get an automatic ZERO on their paper until it’s submitted (don’t try and bluff me on that one) Those with an egregiously high percentage (over 25%) will also receive a ZERO and will need to re- submit it the FOLLOWING DAY If you are new and still have not created a profile, you better ask me (or the librarian) by the end of the day
