How to Write an Assignment
Before you start writing your assignment you have to define the main goals and expectations of it. Usually, every task is given in order to summarize the knowledge students obtained on this or that topic. Every assignment should touch specific questions to express student’s points of view and personal ideas. It may seem to be difficult at first, but very soon writing tasks will become just a piece of cake for you.
Usually, at the universities they recommend to set a number of questions, which will help to limit the assignment description. Try to figure out, what kind of knowledge you can obtain after accomplishing this task and what special knowledge you will be in need of to cope with it.
Figure out the main goals of the problem you’re working on. Should this assignment be aimed only at your group mates or at others as well?
It is highly recommended to define the purpose audience of the paper. Try to find out what kind of attitude students most probably will have towards the author and the paper itself?
Make sure you understand the whole material of the assignment project. Remember, there’s no need to write everything you know. In every task you will be asked to work on specific issues.
Once you decide to evaluate different points of view, it is advisable to do it in a balanced way, unless you have strong arguments concerning this or that idea.
It is highly recommended to provide strong evidence for every idea you’re expressing in your assignment. It is advisable to base your material on theories, concepts and your personal experience. It is important to cite different quotations and ideas, as well as provide full bibliography for the assignment.
Build up your assignment in a logical way, which means every paragraph should link clearly to the next one. Never leave questions ‘in mid-air’.
Remember, you should never be afraid or ashamed to ask for help! Your teacher or group mates will gladly help you. But do it before hand – not in a couple of hours before the deadline!
