Four Steps to a Perfect Assignment/ Oral

  1. 1. School Presentation The four steps to a perfect assignment/ oral
  2. 2. Step 1 Collect your ideas and put them on paper. Remember how important it is to make your ideas flow and easy to understand. No-one wants to take ages going back over notes trying to establish what on Earth is being said.
  3. 3. Step 1 Cont. If your handwriting is messy, simply type some notes and cut them out and glue in your book. There's nothing wrong with a good poster with all your notes and ideas on it. Maybe even use a cork board? GO WILD!
  4. 4. Step 2 Begin finding your hard evidence. Such as: quotes, references, good websites, books, articles, the whole shebang. If it's useful to you, save it. Put it on your board! Either print it out or write it down. Don't forget to reference along the way! If you don't, you'll regret it!
  5. 5. Step 3 Begin drafting. Section each part of your essay/report/article/paper/oral into sections; e.g. introduction/headline and hook, body/paragraph 1/argument 1 (you get the idea). Leave heaps of space between each so you don't have arrows and things all over the place.
  6. 6. Step 3 Cont. Most importantly, make sure it flows. When you draft it's best to write it out first as when you type it up for your final copy you will notice mistakes. Read it backwards if you're prone to spelling and punctuation errors. You won't skim over them this way.
  7. 7. Step 4 Type it up. PLEASE Spell Check. Ensure you use all in-text referencing correctly. If you need, separate your sections on different pages until you're finished and highlight quotes. Put all your references on the last page.
  8. 8. TIP!!  If you're doing an oral, print it out first, read through it aloud and then put it on palm cards Remember to measure your hands! Cardboard with numbering is essential, you don't want to drop them! Large easy to read font, perhaps Arial?
  9. 9. Step 4 Cont. Before you finish, highlight all your text, make sure it is the same colour, size and font. Check your line spacing and margins. Have someone else look over it if you wish. Print. And there you have it! 
