Essay Writing Essay, Research Paper
I would like to talk to you about how to write a paper in English 101. In this
paper I will explain how to first do some kind of pre-writing, writing your
first draft, correcting that draft, and finally writing the final draft. If you
follow these steps carefully, your paper should turn out to be an A, and
hopefully your English teacher will be very proud of you.
First in order to write a successful paper you must do some kind of
pre-writing. In this stage of the paper, you can do one of several methods.
You can do some free writing, where you can write down as many ideas on the
subject that you could possibly think of to get an idea on how your paper is
going to be formed. Also, making as list is a good idea. When making a list,
it is similar to free writing, you list all the facts that you know on the
subject and group the facts together to form what will be paragraphs. Lastly in
the stage of pre-writing, one can make a diagram. When doing this you should
have a general idea on how the paper is going to be broken down. When making a
diagram, a person is basically making an outline of their paper, with a thesis
statement on top, three or four main ideas, some supporting details for each of
those ideas, and a final statement.
When you use one of those methods, you are starting off on the right track to
receive an A for the paper.
Second, you should write some kind of rough draft. In the rough draft, which
should never be turned in as the final copy, you are putting together all of
your work in your pre-writing stage to form something that should look similar
to what will be your final draft. Now you shouldn t be worried about spelling
and grammar, but getting ideas to all fit together to make the paper look and
sound good. This is a very important part of the writing process that without,
your paper will get torn to shreds and full of ink when you get it back.
Next, you must go over this paper and make all corrections necessary to
convince the reader or teacher in this case that you are not an ignorant person.
You should read over the paper a couple of times to make for sure that all
spelling and punctuation. Then read the paper over to see if there are
sentences that don t quite fit the paragraph and doesn t really get the point
across of what you are trying to explain. You should have marks all over your
paper, even if you are an experienced writer. When you are making these
corrections, you should put yourself in the position of the reader and pretend
that you know nothing of the subject and be very critical. Some students have
other critique their paper. This helps so that there is no bias on the
correcting. This method is also very effective to perfect your writing
masterpiece. When these steps are done successfully, it will make a world of
wonder on your final draft.
Lastly you must write the final draft. When you get to this stage of the
paper, you have completed most all of the hard work needed in writing a
successful paper. In this writing, make sure that you are typing this on a
computer or typewriter. A neat written paper is necessary for a good first
impression. Also, make for sure that you are making all corrections from your
rough draft at this time. When you complete this final draft, you should check
this draft over one final time and do one final spell check. When these are
complete, your paper is fine tuned and ready to turn in.
When successfully following all of these steps in the writing process, you will
have hopefully written a paper worthy of a good grade. When a person takes
their time in pre-writing, writing, checking, and then the final draft, they
have put fourth the effort of a real writer. If everything sounds good, you
will receive an A.
