How to Easily and Quickly Write your Student Essay or Article Writing Assignment

This is a simple structure for completing a writing assignment for students. The structure basically follows the introduction, body and the conclusion format. It would be useful for students working on a theme writing assignment involving an activity to write an article or an essay on a particular topic assigned by the teacher. This article shows a simple structure that can be followed and the steps to take in completing the assignment.

Writing an essay or an article on one particular topic is one of the most frequently given assignments for students taking up a writing subject. Don't fret if you don't have writing talent. God has given you other skills to make yourself a useful member of the society where you're operating. If you don't have writing talent and you don't have something to guide you as well, then you're in a difficult situation indeed.

Fortunately, I am here to give you some useful tips and tricks that you can use'to complete your writing assignment. Don't just copy someone's work on the Internet. That would be plagiarism and it could get you in a lot of trouble. Instead, have a firm belief that you can create something that you and your parents can be proud of.

The first thing to do is to create one definite idea in your head regarding the topic assigned to you. If you don't have one yet, search for information regarding the topic on the Internet. Understand thoroughly the ideas and concepts related to the subject matter you have been assigned to write on. Then develop your own way of looking at the problem and form a sort of opinion regarding the issue. This is what you think things ought to be or what needs to be done to resolve a problem or issue.

When you have got the idea on what to write about, write in complete sentences the points that you would like to expound on. At this point, do some more research on the points that you have identified. What are other people saying about it? What are their reasons for believing that way? Have a minimum of three points to a maximum of five points that you would tackle in your article or essay. Have a clear and definite idea of each points and why you think that way.

Now that you're ready, you can start writing your masterpiece. If you already have an idea of an appropriate title for your work, then type it in your word processor. Now, type the first paragraph which should introduce your audience to what you want to write about. Clarify misconceptions here and thoroughly discuss why you think this issue or problem is important. What are the implications of this topic on the daily lives of people in your country? What would be the implications for the future generations if this issue is not dealt with effectively now? You should also at this point or even earlier have stated your stand on the issue clearly and concisely.

Now, start writing the paragraphs that corresponds with the points you have written earlier. Write a minimum of one and a maximum of three paragraphs for each point that you have identified. Each of your points supports the position that you have taken in the first one or two paragraphs you have written. It would be on these paragraphs that you would explain yourself in such a way that you would convince your readers to think or believe in the way that you do.

Continue writing the paragraphs that discuss each of the points you have listed. Develop your points fully, even stating there what others thought about the problem or issue. Explain why you believe what the present situation is like and how it should be approached or what should be done to deal with the issue. Remember that you should always be pointing to your stand that you have elucidated in the first one or two paragraphs of your article or essay. Never take the focus of what you're writing on away from what you have stated there in your initial few paragraphs.

After tackling all the points you have identified, it's time to wrap-up your discussion by repeating your stand on the issue and summarizing the points that you have discussed in the succeeding paragraphs. Write a memorable last statement that would convince the reader to agree with what you have written. You have just completed your written work. Leave your written work aside, save it in the computer, and reward yourself with your favorite snack.

Go back to what you have written and take a second look at it. Correct all grammatical errors and revise some sentences to make them concise and powerful. Have your parents or older siblings look at your work and ask them how you can improve it. You may or may not incorporate their ideas on your work; this decision is up to you.

Remember, there is no right or wrong answer here. What your teacher is looking for is how gracefully you captured your thoughts and put them on the paper. If everything has been well and good at this point, it's time to format your work in accordance with the instructions from your teacher. Now then, this would be a great time to print your work and include it in your bag for submission to your teacher tomorrow. Alternatively, you can email your finished work to your teacher or submit it to the website of your class.

So that is how basically you as a student would proceed in writing the article or essay assigned to you by your teacher. The structure I have outlined has three basic components: the first two or three paragraphs where you introduce the problem and make known your stand on the issue; the next five to ten paragraphs where you discuss each of the points that support your stand; and the summary where you repeat in shortened form what you have written on the preceding paragraphs.

Don't believe if others might say that writing is difficult. It would be difficult if you don't know how to go about doing it. Now that you have a guide, don't just sit there and start making your assignment. Follow the steps I have outlined above and you won't get lost. Good luck.
