Time Management as an Adult Learner
American Public University
Professor Kenneth Reed
Title of Paper
Begin your paper here. Double space the entire document and be sure that you put two spaces between each sentence. Indent the first line of each paragraph between five and seven spaces by pressing the Tab key one time on the keyboard. Start with a strong introduction that includes a thesis statement (what the point of the paper is).
Then add at least three additional paragraphs of details that support your theme or thesis. These paragraphs should end with a sentence that transition to the next paragraph in order to create a paper that reads well and “flows” from one idea or concept to the next. Do not forget PIE: Proof, Information, and/or Evidence to support your points. PIE can be in the form of examples from your own life and/or citations from your resources.
End your paper with a strong conclusion. Think of the conclusion as the closing arguments presented by a lawyer to a jury. Include the most important points from your paper you want your reader to remember. Do not introduce any new ideas or topics in your conclusion. If you feel the need to add more content, go back and add that information to the body of your text.
