Make a To-Do List, Print it off, and Check it Daily
Make it a daily goal to check at least one item off the list
Begin early, with the intentions of finishing early
The longer you delay, the amount of effort it takes to complete anassignment increases exponentially.
If you start early, but don’t get to the rest of it until late, at the very least,the assignment will be started, and you’ll have a leg up.
Working on assignments a little every day makes the work load far lesssubstantial and finishes the assignment quicker than you might think.
Remember, when researching, that more sources doesn’t mean more information—
It might just mean more work with no payout. Focus on getting everything you canfrom each source.Begin looking for sources as soon as the project is assigned
getting on those
sources early allows you the time to do damage control if you can’t find sources, as
well as being able to glean everything you need from a source instead of justskimming it.Take advantage of all the resources available to you
Google Scholar, ProQuest,Project Muse, EBSCO, and JSTOR.
If you have questions about anything related to theassignment, the professor is the best bet.
