I just wanted to share my experience in term paper writing with you now as I go into these steps. I’m assuming you already know from your professors that you need to have some thesis arguments you need to have proper citation and correct grammar so I won’t go into those details step number one no matter how come on time you are.
Writing should never be a chore to you but you rather you should approach it as an art and I know that sounds really lame but my point is that if you’re not passionate about your topic you need to fake it until you are because research and reading about your topic is not only the most important part of the process but also the most time-consuming part and the good thing about college is that you often get to choose your writing topics for your classes but if it’s a forced topic that your professor assigns you then you really have to pretend to like it you really have to tell yourself everything that’s interesting about this.
Tell yourself remind yourself why you’re taking this class why are pursuing this major or anything even for a little bit just to get you through this writing process step number two going back to my internet list term paper anecdote. I want you to pretend like you have to write a term paper in a foreign country without the internet and that you have to gather all your research beforehand in an outline I found out this is the fastest and the least stressful way to write.
I’m going to give you the structure that I use. I like to begin my term papers by introducing my topic giving my thesis and then for longer papers I’ll talk about the upcoming sections so for example all right the next section will detail section two examines the argument for section three examines and the paper concludes with so-and-so and what I mentioned these sections I mean sub headers and I find that sub headers in a paper.
The single best way to improve your term papers organization. Sub-headers are always used in academic publications but it can be helpful even if you’re only writing a paper that’s only five pages long so I’m talking about those part one in bold topic or arguments part two bold topic or argument etc. and what I mean is I’ll just write my introduction and then head the section so I’ll just use the same size fonts and just bold it and then skip a line and then go on to writing the paragraphs for that section and then doing it again. For my structure I’ll always after my introduction and my thesis and everything I’ll always start with a background section if it’s a paper longer than 10 pages.
Whether you’re starting the day of or month before the term paper is due date and I had no idea how to start writing my first term paper. When I was in college so I’m sure a lot of you guys feel the same way hence you’re watching this video and why I wanted to make it and so this video is pretty much geared towards.
I don’t really think these tips apply to high school students as I’m sure your papers don’t have to be this throw the one tip I have for high school students is to absolutely follow the rules that your teacher gives you. If your teacher gives you a structure of how to write since this topic sentence example one two sentences explaining and concluding sentence. I know that’s my five sentence paragraph structure that I was taught to use in high school. I would follow that structure a hundred percent in high school it’s all about doing what your teacher says which sucks and you’ll learn a college and that is not the way to learn or challenge your mind or improve your writing at all but just you got to follow your teachers interruptions of your high school tell her you’re in college.
You might be would pick up a few tips from this article just because it’s geared towards term papers and academic writing. For these term papers especially lengthy papers and it’s all about organization in a structure and also mindset so that’s most of what I’m going to be covering because I know absolutely nothing about creative writing or creative papers so that being said let’s get started.
Personally I’ll never forget the time that I had to write a 30 page term paper in five days three of which I had to spend in China with absolutely no internet but what I learned is that that was one of the best papers I’ve ever written and the process that I used to write that paper is the process that I’ll use for all my future papers but before I delve into these tips I just wanted to give you guys my personal background to show you where my perspective on writing paper comes from when I was in high school.
Writing was a skill with which I struggled the most and it wasn’t until college and I developed a process and improved my writing skills ever since I developed that process I haven’t turned in a term paper that I wasn’t proud of or received a grade that I didn’t want I have been published in the internships that I’ve worked at and I’ve also edited written work of my co-workers throughout all the stages of the writing process. I’ve seen both perspectives and this doesn’t mean that my tips will work for everyone but the structure has been the starting point of my own success as a writer.
