By now, most students are beginning to get their first assignments for their classes. Even if these are short assignments, they still matter in terms of creating a good impression for the professor of the student’s quality of work. In fact, with shorter assignments it is all the more important to write well and make sure that every last syllable has value and meaning, since the format is far more compressed than with a long research paper.
Revise a short essay paragraph by paragraph. Ask yourself these questions: does the introductory paragraph have a strong thesis and a compelling attention-getter in the first line? Does every body paragraph have a topic sentence, a single, focused idea, and is there a logical progression to the argumentation? Is there coherence within each paragraph and does every building block of the essay lead to a logical conclusion? A good conclusion ties the essay together: it does not introduce new information.
Even if your current assignments are relatively brief, now is a good time to contact PaperDue for assistance with any papers and essays in your most challenging classes. The first assignments you turn in to your professor, even if they are not worth a very large percentage of your grade, set the tone for the rest of the semester. You don’t want to make a bad first impression!
