Hi John, Just wondering what the problem is with sub-headings (requirement is to use headings)? Is it about not using too many? Thanks.

Dear Michaela

Yes. Many students that use them use way too many and it ends up making the paper less readable. It becomes more like an outline than an essay.

John, each section of the EE should be separate and named.Therefore, they will end up having: Title page ( with a term Title page on it?); Introduction (Introduction term on it?); Body ( Body?); Discusssion ( Discussion?); Conclusion (Conclusion term on it?); References ( ok, I assume that is how it should be titled). Please, correct me.

No need to write "title page" on the title page.

Headings should be: Introduction, Evidence (or Body), Discussion (this includes the conclusion, but many students put Conclusion as another heading), Works cited (References). That's it.

Thank you! As you may suspect, I am in the process of checking the papers. I thought I knew, but then when you actually start DOING it... That's a different story :) Happy New Year, John!

I know exactly what you mean. Happy new year to you, too, Katarzyna!
