You can find discussion on the other parts of a paper here.
I’ll try to explain what each part entails, but feel free to ask if something is confusing (fair warning, I’m making up the sample main points as I go. I have no idea if any of it would actually be provable; that’s where research would come in). I have a more readable sample w/o all the explanations here.
Have you heard your English professor say the dreaded “I don’t ever give out a 100 on a paper, because no paper can possibly be perfect. All writers need to be aware that they have room for improvement!”
They tried to pull the whole “You’ll never get a perfect score” on me, but I was an official English major and I was prepared. Imagine my glee the day one such professor had to watch me walk away with an actual 100. Yes! Victory! Success! Take that evil English professors everywhere! Actually, though, this little trick got me through all of my writing classes with almost straight As. Surprisingly, the same trick applies to writing an answer to an essay exam, writing a speech, or writing a presentation.
