Term Paper Guide - Articles Surfing
This term paper guide would give you valuable tips on how to write an assignment. Since assignment writing involves active participation from the student, he is able to learn more than what he learns in the class. So every student should write an assignment even if it is optional.
Sometimes the tutor may give a topic to write while sometimes the student might be expected to write on a topic of his choice. Try not to choose a general topic because it hardly gives any scope of examining an issue in detail. Choose a specific topic and begin research on it immediately.
Don't think that there is too much of time left, because later you would have to rush over the assignment. Doing an assignment before time is always better than panicking in the last moment. If you start early you would get plenty of time for research. Don't think that the main purpose of the research is to gather material for your assignment. The main purpose of the research is to make you learn many new things. So never indulge in shortcut while researching. Read as much as you can on the topic you are writing. For this, keep enough time in your hand. You will not be able to do it satisfactorily in the last moment.
After you have gathered all the material, prepare an outline of your work. An outline is a rough draft that enables you to make a format of your paper. Write separate points for introduction, body and conclusion. Next to each point you can also write the page number and name of the text from where you would like to make quotations.
In the final draft, write your thesis statement in the first paragraph, which is the introduction of your essay. The first few sentences of the essay are crucial in building an image of the essay in the eyes of the reader. So use different strategies like quotes, narration of a short story or some data to introduce the topic.
The paragraphs that follow the introduction make the body of the assignment. They should highlight the supporting ideas. Each supporting idea should be written in a separate paragraph. Write the conclusion at the end of the assignment. Conclusion is a summary of all the points that have been discussed in the essay. You can also provide your suggestions or assumptions of possible implications if the topic demands.
Also abide by the other requirements of the essay. Don't cross the word limit neither write lesser than what is required. You might be given the number of sources to be consulted. Keep this number in mind. You can consult more than what has been instructed but use quotations from only those number of sources that has been specified. Follow the desired citation style for citing the sources within the essay as well as while writing the bibliography.
