Spacing

Double space all text in your papers. The default for MSWord is 1.15 spacing, so you’ll need to change this.

Margins

Margins should be set at one inch on all sides of the paper. Indent the first line of each paragraph one tab, which is usually either five spaces or a half inch. The default in MSWord is 1.25” margins, so you’ll need to change this.

Spacing between paragraphs

Don’t skip extra lines between paragraphs—even though this is also the default in MSWord. You can eliminate these extra lines by changing the settings under Page Layout – Paragraph – Spacing (or Format – Paragraph) to 0 Before and After.

Titles

Create your own title which succinctly describes your paper and which catches the reader’s attention. Avoid titles such as Narrative or Essay #2, as these are not terribly descriptive–they could be used for any paper in the class. Do not put your title in quotes or underline it.

What to put on the first page

Don’t include a title page or cover page; instead, put your name, my name, and the course and section number or time or online in the upper left corner of the first page ONLY, then center your title 2 lines below.

Pagination & headers

Use a header to put your last name and a page number in the upper right corner of EVERY PAGE. For instructions on how to do this, google something like add MLA header to MSWord document.

Fonts

Type your paper in a font comparable in size to this one (10-12 point); your font should allow approximately 250 – 300 words per page. Don’t print the entire paper in italics, bold, or usual or ornamental fonts.

Capitalization

Never type a paper all in capital letters–this makes it more difficult to read and impossible to judge your capitalization skills.

Editing

Be sure to use a spell checker just before you print the final copy of your document. You may also find the grammar checker helpful, although you should take the advice it gives you with a grain of salt.

First and Second Person – remove the pronouns you, your, I, me, my, mine, we, us, our, you, your, etc.

Outline- have it number numerals, topic, including the conclusion,

Verb tense,

Don’t argue that we need standard English or “standards” to communicate

Don’t make the mistake of assuming, as so many alarmists do today, that language change = the destruction of the language.

added to the four pages there must be work cited and outline

have a strong thesis statement
