Assignment Planning: Introduction

An essay is your opinion about a little bit of a subject, in which you use evidence to support your opinion. (Mounsey, 2002, p.9)

This guide details steps in planning & writing a piece of written academic work such as an essay. Ideally it should discuss and analyse all aspects of your topic, making reference to research and studies, which back up your own thoughts and opinions

  1. Research - use other sources to back up your argument but be sure to reference them fully to avoid committing plagiarism.
  2. Your own Critical Thinking, Opinions & Insights – as backed by up your research

This guide breaks down the assignment writing into 6 steps, it describes each step and will provide tips on how to complete each.

The six steps are an integral part of the assignment writing class. You can view upcoming classes here or view the classes slides below.
