The under-mentioned strategies and tactics will help you definitely to up your game on Assignments. It has helped many students including me.
Firstly, you have to start the assignment right away. That means don’t wait till your professors remind you of the Assignment. Start it from day 1. This will give you enough time to be creative as well as you will not be stressed out.
Next try to understand the topic thoroughly. Get the outline properly. If you have doubts let your professor help you out or ask them. Don’t just nod to anything they say, make it a habit to note down what they say. Then start your initial research with somewhere simple like maybe Google or Wikipedia. Try to track the sources of the original article and see whether it helps. Keep notes of the sites you visited.
Next you have to be firm on what ground you stand. It should be something you prefer and maybe emotionally connected. Feel free to turn or adjust your hypothesis according to your research. New information will always lead to new realizations.
Be prepared to argue on the stance you take. So you will have to do your research for it. Make sure that these arguments to be your building blocks of your stance. Try to be specific and detailed with your arguments. Feel free to use journal articles with your arguments.
Then try to question, “why is this argument important for my professor to know?” Utilize these questions as a method to convince yourself on the stance you take. Try to use free writing methodology. That means just write whatever you get in your head. Don’t try to search for grammar and spelling mistakes just write. This is to let your brain be creative and expresses itself other than some frame of mind. You can go back and correct the flaws later. Make sure when you free write that you know what you are writing and free search anything in doubt.
Try to make a real life scenario or an application. Your professor will love such work. They will often reward you even for the attempt. Try to utilize graphics to illustrate what you say. Your proposed idea might be simple but try to be detailed with your explanation.
Then express your ideas clearly. Communicate complex ideas in simple but clear language. This will show your professor that you have a clear understanding of the things you talk about. Try to edit your work by reading out loud. Pronounce each word out loud and clearly. Edit any sentence you think is not sounding right. Do the reading at least 2-3 times. Try and use text to speech software where you will be able to hear if something doesn’t sound nice.
If your assignment is based on questions try and understand them first. They might have key points on your assignment. Be opportunistic and try to make your way towards a higher grade. Be confident in what you do.
