Step 1: Reflect on Previous Milestone Feedback and Make Adjustments
Each week after you submitted a Milestone assignment, your instructor provided you with feedback, often including suggestions for improvement. Take stock of that feedback and incorporate it. This might mean adjusting the wording of your thesis statement, replacing a source, fixing errors in your APA formatting, rewriting your introduction, or rethinking your organization of paragraphs. Make sure to use your peer’s feedback on Milestone 5 as well – what suggestions did they have to improve your introduction and outline? Did they understand your argument and if not, how can you communicate it more clearly?
Step 2: Use Your Outline to Draft Your Paper
Using your Milestone 5 outline, begin to flesh out each of your body paragraphs by adding evidence from your sources that support your thesis (along with proper in-text citations for ideas or quotes from your sources). Make sure to include transitions between paragraphs and wrap up your paper with a conclusion paragraph that reiterates your thesis argument and offers some concluding thoughts.
Step 3: Review and Edit Your Work
Once you have a full draft written, make sure to re-read it carefully with an eye on the details like spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence clarity, and word choice. Go back to the Writing Refresher section of the course for help with any weak areas of your writing. Try reading it aloud to catch errors you might otherwise miss in print.
Submit a completed 3-5 page (approx. 750-1250 words) research paper on your topic choice made in Module 1 that incorporates your work from Milestones 1-6. Use the Final Project Template Download Final Project Template for an example of how to create and format your final paper.
It should include:
- At least 4 references
- A title page and reference page in APA style
- In-text citations in APA format
- An introductory paragraph with your clear, one-sentence thesis statement (this should NOT be underlined at this point)
- Body paragraphs that use information from the sources as evidence to prove the thesis statement
- A conclusion paragraph that offers final thoughts and reiterates the thesis statement
- Proper spelling, syntax, and grammar
- Improvements based on your instructor’s feedback on your previous milestone work (i.e. to the thesis statement, introduction, organization, use of sources, APA style, etc.)
***feedback section module 3
You have a good start to your thesis statement but you will need to add more detail and focus on three points for your thesis covered in the webtext or at least address what methods or actions would be taken for the misinformation campaigns.
***feedback section module 4
You did a good job on paraphrasing your content from but had minor issues with your citation. The citation should be Zocchi et al., 2021). I look forward to reading your paper as I am certainly interested in this topic as well. You did a good job on your sources but they are not in the right order. They should be in alphabetical order by author last name or first word if no author. You did properly add hanging indents on only your second source. All the other sources had incorrect hanging indents. A hanging indent is a tab in every line after the first line of each source. You last source should be left justified.
***feedback section module 5
You have a quality introduction paragraph and good thesis statement that can be modified slightly to flow better. For your thesis statement you have: There is therefore the need for the government do more in trying to bring the economy of the emergency care system to life, this is specifically very important because looking at other countries there is much improvements that are needed to be done in order to ensure that the economic state of the healthcare sector of the country is improved. I recommend: There is a strong need for the government do more in trying to bring the economy of the emergency care system to life, this is specifically very important because looking at other countries there is much improvements that are needed to be done in order to ensure that the economic state of the healthcare sector of the country is improved. Your outline with body paragraphs have excellent supporting details that relate to your thesis and are backed up by appropriate sources. You have a good approach towards your conclusion but could have went into more detail. I look forward to reading your paper. References should be on a new page. Good job on your references. You followed proper APA format within your sources. You added hanging indents but each line after the first line should should be tabbed in once.
