The key to writing a good paper is to spread it out over as much time as possible. Writing a paper should be a process, not a one-time event. When you have a paper to write, go through the following ten steps. 1. Choose a topic that interests you. 2. Gather information. (Librarians can be very helpful with this.) 3. Make an outline. 4. Write the first draft. 5. Read your paper out loud and think of ways to improve it. 6. Revise and rewrite. 7. Have someone else read it. 8. Write the final draft. 9. Check for punctuation, spelling, and grammar errors. 10. Make sure that your paper looks neat, and turn it in on time. When you’re writing a paper, it’s very important to put it away at least once or twice. When you take it out and read it again, you’ll see and hear things that you didn’t notice before. Be sure to always identify another person’s words or ideas by using quota- tion marks or footnotes. If you present another person’s words or ideas as your own, it’s the same as cheating. It’s called plagiarism. u Find a good place to study. u Get started. u Know your learning style. u Organize your study time. u Know how to study for tests. u Know how to memorize and remember information. u Develop your public speaking skills. u Know how to write a paper.
