It is very likely that when were first assigned a term paper at the beginning of the semester you thought to yourself. “I have plenty of time for this project”. Now, the deadline is only a handful of days away and you haven’t even begun to compose an outline.
This happens to so many students every semester in Colleges and Universities across the country. Procrastination, which has become an increasing epidemic amongst freshman, is the main reason that many students do not get the grades that they truly deserve. Instead of living up to there full potential, students slap together last minute papers that get them a “passing grade”. Instead of creating new thought provoking written content, they are robbing themselves of a learning experience and developing bad habits that will haunt them later in life.
I am here to remind you of a harsh truth, writing an A+ term paper takes time and persistence. You can’t drink a litre of coffee and stay up all putting it together and expect to get a good grade. The reason that a term paper is called a term paper is because you are meant to work on it throughout the “term”. The reason that they are typically due on the last day of class is because you are suppose to use the knowledge that you have gained in that class to complete the assignment.
I know that it is not my responsibility to lecture students on how they approach their homework assignment. In fact, it is really none of my business how you go about getting your term paper done. However, if you are interested in reversing those procrastination habits and getting good grades we’ve composed a list of tips that will help you get your “term paper” done, properly on time, without any extra stress.
