If there is a discrepancy in formatting between a style manual and this Guide, the regulations set forth in this Guide take precedence. Please do not use another thesis or dissertation as a model for your work since a particular style or example in a previous year may not meet current guidelines. Also, certain commonly used software packages may require format modifications in order to comply with current guidelines. It is your responsibility to ensure that your thesis or dissertation is formatted correctly before you submit it to The Graduate School.

CONCESSION: Like the strawman, the concession technique presents the opposing viewpoint, but it does not proceed to demolish the opposition. Instead, it concedes that the opposition has a valid point but that, even so, the positive argument is the stronger one. This method is particularly valuable when you know your reader holds the opposing view.

Sometimes you will know the answer to an assignment question immediately, but often you will need to research the topic first.

These patterns can give a "lift" to your writing. Practice them. Try using two or three different patterns for your introductory paragraph and see which introductory paragraph is best; it's often a delicate matter of tone and of knowing who your audience is. Do not forget, though, that your introductory paragraph should also include a thesis statement to let your reader know what your topic is and what you are going to say about that topic.
