10 Tips on how to Write an A+ School Essay

When you are writing a school essay there are many aspects you need to consider. You can follow these 10 tips to ensure you get an A+ paper:

  • Tip #1: Read over the instructions carefully. Each teacher provides careful instructions for your paper and you need to read them carefully to ensure you understand the topic. If you don’t understand the topic you need to ask your teacher for help.
  • Tip #2: Take some time to think of the best topic. If you were not given an explicit topic on which to write then you are responsible for creating one yourself. If you are unsure whether the topic is an appropriate one then ask the teacher.
  • Tip #3: Craft some questions that you need to answer in your essay. Ask yourself what type of research (if any) is involved in your paper. Ask yourself what questions a reader might have and then seek the answers.
  • Tip #4: Research thoroughly. Make sure you use the school library as well as the internet for your research. Every tool you have is a good tool.
  • Tip #5: Take copious notes. It is important that you take notes while you research. You can use different colored pens as well as note cards to separate your arguments from your evidence. As you take notes it is imperative that you keep track of the websites and URL’s for the sites you visited and that you mark down citations for all of the sources you are going to use.
  • Tip #6: Create an outline from your notes. This can be a bullet point outline or a topic sentence outline. Your job is to mark down the sections and supporting evidence for each section in the outline so that you can craft a clear draft.
  • Tip #7: Write your rough draft. Use the outline you created to write the rough draft.
  • Tip #8: Proofread your rough draft. This is where you look for grand ideas and issues that might arise with flow or logic. Make sure your arguments are clear and supported.
  • Tip #9: Edit for spelling and grammar. Make sure you have smooth transitions.
  • Tip #10: Write a final draft and submit it.

By following all ten tips you read above for every paper you write you can rest assured that you will receive a top mark.
