The feeling that Jim displays shows Huck that Jim has a very
human reaction and the fact Jim says, "Oh Huck, I bust out crying....'Oh
the po' little thing!" (Twain 151), only further proves to Huck that Jim
is as caring as he is.
Don't feel that you have to write a paper in order. If you know how you want to prove your thesis, for instance, but don't know how to introduce it, you could write some or all of the supporting paragraphs before doing the introduction.
The most obvious theory is that each border in a basic drawing represents one physical boundary around some surface or shape. But it is not that simple, because all lines, no matter how thin, have two sides or contours—an inside and an outside border, if you will. As a result, thick lines are perceived quite differently from thin ones. Consider a thick line tracing a profile. If it is thick enough, it appears to show two profiles, one per edge, gazing in the same direction [see illustration]. When the line is thin and its two borders are close together, though, an observer perceives only one face. As it turns out, touch produces a similar effect. I prepared a series of profile drawings in which both edges of the defining line were raised. When the edges were only 0.1 centimeter apart, my blind volunteer, Sanne, a student at Aarhus University, said they showed one face. When they were 0.8 centimeter apart, she reported that they showed two faces.
We typically think of sight as the perceptual system by which shapes and surfaces speak to the mind. But as the empirical evidence discussed above demonstrates, touch can relay much of the same information. In some ways, this finding is not so surprising. When we see something, we know more or less how it will feel to the touch, and vice versa. Even so, touch and sight are two very different senses: one receives input in the form of pressure, and one responds to changes in light. How is it that they can then interpret something as simple as a line in exactly the same way? To answer this question, we must consider what kind of information it is that outlines impart to our senses.
DeVito discusses the rules of friendship and the ways to maintain it. Before these rules can be applied to a friendship relationship there are different types of friendships to be identified.
If you don't understand what a particular source is talking about, ask your teacher what it means so you can better understand the material. Teachers can usually tell when students use information in their papers that they don't really understand.
After you have read as much as you need, DO NOT just start to write. Think about what you have read, mull over it on a walk, or discuss it with friends. The professor already knows about what you are writing and is looking to see how well you have understood a topic. It is no use at all to just present your reading notes stuck between an introduction and a conclusion.
The theoretical basis of the rules of friendship comes from Devito's discussion of interpersonal relationships between people and the different ways to achieve and maintain it. One of the main discussions in his work was Argyle and Henderson's (1984) rules of friendship. They say that friendship is based on a set of rules that are to be followed by each friend in the relationship (Devito, Joseph 1992, p. 367). When these rules are followed the friendship should remain strong and satisfying, and when they are broken the friendship may suffer and die (Devito, p.367). The ideas of the friendship rules, serve an important function: they can help people learn the social skills involved in developing a friendship and also help maintain it.
Proofreading is primarily about searching your writing for errors, both grammatical and typographical, before submitting your paper for an audience (a teacher, a publisher, etc.). Use this resource to help you find and fix common errors.
This second drawing revealed a fundamental principle of perspective—namely, that as an object becomes more distant, it subtends a smaller angle. (Think about viewing a picket fence at an angle and how its posts appear shorter closer to the horizon.) Kathy’s use of this basic rule suggested that some aspects of perspective might be readily understood by the blind. Again the proposition seemed reasonable, given some consideration. Just as we see objects from a particular vantage point, so, too, do we reach out for them from a certain spot. For proof of the theory, I designed a study with Paul Gabias of Okanagan University College in British Columbia, who was then at New York University.

If the teacher lets you choose your own topic, it's best to write a paper about something that you find really interesting. This might be an issue that you feel strongly about and want to defend (or one you disagree with and want to argue against!). After you come up with your topic, run it by your teacher before you move on to the next step — research.
The great part about doing lots of research is that when you really know your topic, writing about it becomes easier. Still, sitting with a blank computer screen in front of you and a deadline looming can be pretty intimidating. Even if you've read countless books, websites, and journals, and have all your notes prepared, it's normal to struggle with exactly how to get started on the actual writing.
