Q. What is included when you write a rough draft essay?


A rough draft should include:

  • the core elements of the paper
  • the thesis statement
  • sections that support and/or contrast your point
  • most of the information you want to convey in the final draft

Visit the APA Help guide to see a sample paper and citation information. 

See the the Purdue OWL for more information on where to begin. 

Also, contact your campus library for information on how to contact the writing center.
