-Keep in mind the overall argument (the ideas they have for various sections)

-Remain open to emergent ideas

-Have someone help you read it (writing center appointment)

-Important aspects to take into account (with professors such as myself)

-Do not write to satisfy the professor’s ideological preferences

-Avoid moralistic stances (this is bad, this is terrible, etc.)

-Only peer-reviewed

– Do NOT write “In his article XYZ author XYZ argues that”

– You could use databases such as WorldCat and JStore
