Steps for successful assignments

Think of assignment writing as a series of steps which include the following:

Working through a series of steps is helpful because:
  • You think about writing as a set of manageable sub-tasks.
  • You are aware of the preparation stages as well as the actual writing stages.
  • You can time manage your assignments more easily.
Include these steps for each assignment on a semester planner that outlines when you will work on different aspects of each assignment throughout the semester so that you can allocate a reasonable amount of time to each assignment.
