This paper discusses the format and technique in writing a reaction paper for films discussed under the Science courses designed for our school. When you submit your reaction papers, it should be printed on a short bond paper (not A4 or long) with an inch (1 inch) margin on all sides. The paper only uses the Tahoma font style.

In starting your paper, please think of a unique and relevant title for your paper. It should have a font size of 18, bold. The title must not be October Sky but a relevant title that could summarize or give a gist of your paper. It must contain a subtitle A Reaction Paper for October Sky (in replacement to A Guide in Writing a Reaction Paper for October Sky in this Guide) with a font size of 12.
