How can I write an assignment?

We have to arrange our assignment in this manner:

(1) Use our concept map or plan. 

(2) Paragraph planning.

(3) Linking paragraphs.

(4) Different parts of the essay.

(5) Writing an introduction.

(6) Writing the body.

(7)Writing the conclusion

Which points we need to consider while writing the assignments? Explain thoroughly.

We need to consider the following points while writing the assignments.

(1) Use our concept map or plan

(a) While writing the assignment we have to use our map or plan to guide us.  

(b) As we write, we may well get new ideas or think about ideas in slightly different ways.  

(c) And, check back to our map or plan to evaluate whether that idea fits well into the plan or the paragraph that we are writing at the time.

(2) Paragraph planning

Before writing a paragraph, think about the main idea that we want to communicate in that paragraph and write a clear topic sentence which tells the reader what we are going to talk about.  The main idea is more than a piece of content that we found while we were researching, it is often a point that we want to make about the information that we are discussing. Consider how we are going to discuss that idea (what is the paragraph plan). 

Before writing any paragraph, we should consider these things on our mind:

List paragraphs should include words like: similarly, additionally, next, another example, as well, furthermore, another, firstly, secondly, thirdly, finally, and so on.

Cause and effect paragraphs should include words like: consequently, as a result, therefore, outcomes included, results indicated, and so on.

Compare and contrast paragraphs should include words like: on the other hand, by contrast, similarly, in a similar way, conversely, alternatively, and so on.

Problem solution paragraphs should include words like outcomes included, identified problems included, other concerns were overcome by, and so on.

(3) Linking paragraphs:

Try using linking words (outlined above) to signal to our reader whether we are talking about similar ideas, whether we are comparing and contrasting, and so on.  

The direction that our thinking is taking in the essay should be very clear to our reader.  

Linking words will help us to make this direction obvious.

(4) Different parts of the essay:

We should start thinking about some general principles for writing introductions, body paragraphs and conclusions.  

Always check the type of assignment that we are being asked to produce and consider what would be the most appropriate way to structure that type of writing. 

Remember that in most (not all) writing tasks, especially short tasks (1,000 to 2,000 words), we will not write headings such as introduction and conclusion.  

Never use the heading ‘body’.

(5) Writing an introduction:

The introduction is must to provide general information about the topic. 

It will include Background, context or a general orientation to the topic so that the reader has a general understanding of the area we are discussing.

There is main idea which is our response to the question.  

We can use some of the words from the question in the introduction to indicate that we are on track with the topic.  

(6) Writing the body:

We need to focus that each paragraph should make a point which should be linked to our outline and thesis statement.

The most important consideration in the body paragraphs is the argument that we want to develop in response to the topic. 

This argument is developed by making and linking points in and between paragraphs.

Try structuring paragraphs like this:

Topic sentence: open the paragraph by making a point 

Supporting sentences: support the point with references and research

Conclusive sentence: close the paragraph by linking back to the point you made to open the paragraph and linking this to your thesis statement.

As we write the body, make sure that we have strong links between the main ideas in each of the paragraphs.

(7) Writing the conclusion:

This is usually structured as follows:

We should describe in general terms the most important points made or the most important linkage of ideas

We should not include new information, therefore it does not usually contain references

We should end with a comment, a resolution, or a suggestion for issues that may be addressed in future research on the topic.
