How do I format my project?

All projects need to include content, a focus, and citations. You'll focus your project by developing a thesis statement. There are different ways to format your project and citations. Your audience, which may be your teacher, will usually determine the style you should use to format your project and citations.

Directions: Review your project requirements. Begin with #1 and work through #4 below. Then, click next.


Create a citation for the article, Body Conscious.

  1. Use the citation rough draft provided by EBSCO: click the "Cite" button under the Tools menu on the right.
  2. Check the EBSCO citation rough draft with one of the citation generators:

Find and circle the thesis statement in the article, Body Conscious. Review what you learned about thesis statements in the guide How to Write a Thesis Statement. Does the thesis statement you found in Body Conscious take a stand? Does it justify discussion? Does it express a single main idea? Is it specific? Do you think it's a strong thesis statement?


Choose a quote from the article, Body Conscious, that you would use if you were writing a paper on this topic. Cite that quote using the Citation Hamburger graphic organizer.
