Very often online degree students encounter a paper task that looks overwhelming. They tend to put it aside until last minute. As a result, your online degree marks will inevitably suffer. Not everybody can excel in writing, but ordinary writing is not a talent reserved for a chosen few. It is in fact a skill that anyone can learn, even as an adult. Planning and organization are important. With a knowledge of these, the online degree student can improve his writing. This is a short guide to organized writing. Use this outline in writing online degree assignments, essay tests, and online term papers.
Begin with a general statement.
Narrow it down to the controlling idea (for thesis statement).
In each paragraph:
Use transitions (repetition of key words and ideas) to connect paragraphs together.
Develop the topic sentence with details, definitions, illustrations, comparisons, and contrasts.
Conclude the paragraph with a summary of the main idea.
Restate the thesis.
End with a general statement finalizing the discussion and then print the document or email it to your online degree instructor.
