Once you pick the topic, look carefully at the teacher instructions. See when your due dates are and then look to see how much research you will need for each of your main ideas. You may have to provide an electronic submission, a hard copy, an outline, a reference page, and hard copies of your research.
Additionally, you will want to make sure the paper is typed in a 12-point font, that you use a plain font such as Arial, and that it is double-spaced throughout the paper. Your teacher should be able to tell you whether he or she wants an APA or a MLA format.
If you struggle at any step of the process, go and see your teacher. If you are still having difficulty, you may want to hire a tutor or a writing company. They can help you with your paper and help you to learn how to do it own your own in the future.
