Plan the investigation:
- Do you have books on the subject?
- Are you a frequent visitor of pages co-related to the theme of your essay?
- Do you attend discussion groups?
- Do you have contact with people who can shed light on the subject to be dealt with and in the process serve as a secondary source to support your arguments for or against?
- Everything that expands your knowledge on the subject will be of great help to inform you, to know other opinions and thus to compare them with yours. And to plan it organically will help you to take advantage of your time.
Take note of those things that you consider relevant to you. They will be fundamental at the time of beginning to write the essay.
How to start preparing an academic essay
Once you have clearly understood the question you are going to develop with the essay, and you have collected good information on the subject, you can start with step 2:
List of Ideas:
Helping you with your notes and all the information you now have in your mind on the subject, make a list of all the ideas that help you answer the essay question.
Note: remember that an essay is a personal writing, in which through your opinion you will let your position on a topic, your ideas and way of thinking.
List on a paper the subjects and their order:
An essay is composed of several paragraphs of development, so in a paper you should plan how you will develop the theme. Create an order that you consider important to develop the theme.
Why is it important that you order the development of the topic in several paragraphs? Because this way you can pose a main idea, defend or sustain a position in front of the situation and provide references that support or sustain your essay.
By doing this in several paragraphs it will be easier for the reader to understand the entire text.
At this point, do not think about the final order of the essay but about the order in which you will approach the topic as such, related to the question for the essay.
Note : to write an academic essay there are no rules on its extension, that you will define it and above all, the information that it includes.
Start writing the draft:
The time has come! You can start to write.
If you like physics dictionaries, make sure you have one on hand or one of the best online dictionaries that you like the most.
Is it advisable to start writing it directly on the computer?
We consider it a personal decision.
Everything depends on your preferences. There are people who prefer to write on paper and then transcribe the final text, while others prefer to write directly on the computer and make corrections in the march.
What we recommend and emphasize in this, is that always, throughout the analysis of the essay question and the investigation of the subject, take notes.
The notes are one of the inputs that the author can not do without.
