First-Year Skills: Preparing for your Assignments

Keep it Simple



Good writing develops over time. Try to complete research and writing assignments as early as possible so you give yourself the opportunity to review your paper for spelling and grammatical errors, organization and coherence. Pretend the readers of your papers know nothing about your class and the assignment.  Anyone should be able to pick up your paper and understand it without needing any background information. If you are not seeing the results you want, don’t feel discouraged, you can speak with your professors and writing tutors are available at the Learning Center.
