A research paper should have a strong link between the introduction, the main body and the conclusion.
This makes it very necessary for one to consider the relevance and contribution of the introduction to the rest of the work.
Many different colleges and universities consider ACE CREDIT recommendations in determining the applicability to their course and degree programs.
Many students try to write the introduction to their paper first.When doing a research on banking history, the manner in which the paper starts matters a lot.Banking is more of factual and numerical data than it is theoretical.Each paragraph needs to have a topic sentence that identifies what part of your argument the paragraph will support.In general, each paragraph should be at least three sentences.If your paragraph gets too long, re-read it and see if you can break it into two paragraphs.The easiest way to create a conclusion is to restate the main points of your paper in a new way within a few sentences.Each case study highlights the changing nature of program planning and shows the reader how shifting and hard-to-identify power relationships often change the process and even the outcomes of adult program planning.My personal definition of “adult” when referring to adult education starts at age 16.The Introduction to a research paper needs to convince the reader that your work is important and relevant, frame the questions being addressed, and provide context for the findings being presented.For an audience of researchers who constantly need to make decisions about how best to invest their time and which articles to read, an Introduction needs to “sell” your paper to the reader.
