- Let’s take another look at those 14 FFG Rules
- Advice: Link your titles to the sources
- Technique: Demonstrated
Fun: Search Your Own Work on Google
- Copy and paste a complex sentence from your own work that uses terminology, search it on Google and be prepared to be amazed when you show up on the first page of results, as you will forever when others search for similar language. “Writing is Recursive.”
- Here’s a sentence from Harp’s Rebuttal Argument as it appears in a Google Search results page.
Structure of the Research Paper
- It’s a combination of your 3 Short Arguments, not a new Argument.
- It should not be divided into sections (Definition/Causal/Rebuttal)
- It should not contain 3 introductions (2 internal)
- It should provide References for only those sources actually cited in the 3000-word paper
- Actual Bibliographic Notations, not just links to your sources.
- HOW I WILL USE IT = HOW I USED IT!
- Grade Levels 2
- An “in reverse” unpacking of dense, content-rich statements into their component parts: backwards advice.
- Stephen Hawking Was Wrong
- Revision advice on how to grab reader attention with bold claims you can actually support.

- Building Refutation Language into your Refutations
- This links to the same post by BeezKneez as the Citation model above. Read the feedback chain for examples of “refuting while reporting” on the claims made by your “opponent.”
