  • Mention the subject and the topic you’re discussing.

  • If you’re writing about a work of art or literature, provide the title and the name of the author or artist.

  • If the paper has a thesis — an idea you’re proving — state the thesis.

  • You may also include the main supporting points or subtopics.
