How to write a research assignment
Knowing the best way to approach doing an assignment makes the process a whole lot easier. The steps are:
1. Make sure you understand what you have to do. Read the assignment through then go back and highlight what it is that you have to find out. Highlight in another colour how you are to present your information. Next brainstorm for ideas, for words that will become your keywords or search words.
2. Search for information using these keywords.
3. Select only the best information - information that is relevant to your assignment, up to date and of good quality.
4. Organise your ideas into a logical order. Write notes. Record where you got your information from.
5. Create - it's time to put your ideas down in your first draft. Redraft until you are happy with what you have written. Read your final piece critically and make necessary changes/edit.
6. Evaluate how you think you went.
