How to Write Stronger Essays Iconographic

  1. 1. One of the most common struggles that most students face is writing a strong essay. Check out the following tips to write papers that shine. READ IT ALOUD A great way to check for spelling errors, word choice, or confusing sentences is to read your essay out loud. You will hear things that your eyes would otherwise have passed over without noticing. Starting early enough sets you up for many other steps that will support writing stronger essays. So give yourself at least 2 weeks to work on your essay. Your grade will thank you for it! START EARLY Don't expect to get the essay done well in one draft. Even the best writers do not write their masterpieces the first time around. Make several drafts before turning in the final assignment. WRITE DRAFTS Try stepping away from what you are writing for an hour, a day, or even a couple of days. It is surprising what a little space and perspective can do for your writing. TAKE TIME AWAY One of the best ways to become a stronger writer is to read those who write well. This is true for both fiction and non-fiction writing. Go get your nose in a book, your writing will reflect what you read. READWRITE A CLEAR THESIS Use the A + B + C formula for your thesis statement. A is your topic. B is your opinion on that topic. C is your points of support. Use your thesis like a map which tells you and your reader where you are going. PAY ATTENTION TO WORD CHOICE There are too many ways to communicate through writing to stick to just a few descriptive words. So eliminate repetitive words and replace them with other words you find in the thesaurus. HOW TO WRITE STRONGER ESSAYS by Oxford Tutoring
