Good news! Our blog has been nominated for the best educational resource devoted to academic writing of 2013.
Chances are you will write dozens of term papers in your college career, so it is worth you time to make sure you have a good understanding of how to structure and write an A grade paper. Using a sample can be a great strategy to creating this solid base. If you are using a sample for a specific assignment, its important to make sure you are choosing the right kind of essay: research essays are different from analytical essays, so make sure you are using the right kind as a guide. To find a sample term paper you should go to:
Your professor may or may not be an obvious first choice for where to find a sample term paper. But if you’re struggling to understand what is expected of you in the assignment, or if you are looking for help on how to organize or format it, don’t be afraid to go to your teacher for help. Ask them if they have any examples from previous classes that they’d be willing to share with you. The upside of getting a sample from your professor is that you’ll know that it is what they’re looking for with the specific assignment. Also, chances are they’ll be impressed that you were proactive enough to seek out help.
Most universities have a writing center that can be a tremendous resource to students. Not only can they likely provide you with a sample term paper, but they can help you organize, research, and edit your own. You can also find resources on writing center websites from other universities.
Most college students under utilize their librarians, because they don’t realize that they can help with a lot more than just finding books in the stacks. They can help you access all kind of resources, including sample papers for different subjects.
While it’s riskier than getting a sample term paper from your professor or writing center, you can also tern to online forums for assignment help. There are academic forums where other students may be willing to send you their papers, as well as general forums which may have a sub category for students or even for the subject of your class. When using samples from online sources like this, you should always be critical of whether they are good examples to use, and whether they meet the requirements your professor has set.
