Writing the One-Page Paper

Reality check, or the Bottom Line, or the skinny Blue Bar image

This is one way for you to write a successful paper for this history class.  There are shortcuts to writing a paper, and you can be sure that I tried every one of them sometime during my student career--usually with less than stellar results--so, don't expect much if you dash off a paper in the middle of the night without ever reading the assigned book.  Shortcuts do lead to "short" (less than great) grades; no doubt about it.  There are other methods that you can use to write a good paper, and you should check with your campus writing center for further help.
