Reaction Paper Guidelines
Below is a list of research paper guidelines that can effectively help you write your paper:
- Read the whole article attentively and take down important notes. Writing down key words can serve as your framework. Read and re-read the material for better understanding of the text. First reading is just to familiarize you with the subject. On the second reading, you can now identify the author’s intent and main arguments while on the third reading, you can now effectively respond to the arguments set
- The pre-writing process allows you to brainstorm facts and details about the subject. This is the part where you create your outline. Once you have an outline, it will now be easier for you to construct appropriate sentences.
- A good introduction begins with a strong argument, described on a sentence or two.
- Every argument needs at least two supporting statements from the material reviewed.
- Always remember that a reaction paper is not a book report. Summarize only the necessary information and avoid ambiguity by going straight to the point
