Final entry : Academic Writing Workshop
The academic writing workshop has met its aims!
Once I have applied the tips I have learnt during this workshop in one of my essays, I was rewarded by the mark my essay got! Therefore, since I now have two essays to hand in in a month’s time, I should work in the same way as I did with my last essay.
Firstly, do an adequate research so that I can approach the topic easily. Then, get all the information together in order to separate the useful materials and the unnecessary information. Consequently, plan your essays in a clear way so that the reader can see that you have fully understood the question.
Having in mind the above basic steps, I will do my best to write a “good” academic essay. In my opinion, if I had not attended this workshop in the first term then I would not be able to put things in order and get the desired marks. During the workshop I have learnt various methods which were new to me( such as quoting a quote, or breaking down the title to single words which helps in providing a better understanding of the topic) and this helped me in understanding how I could improve previous essays or homework in general. I would therefore, strongly recommend this workshop to other students who are aiming for a better result or who are willing to learn something more in order to improve their writing skills.
