Understand the need: What is the assignment? What is expected of me?
Collect the facts: The library can help with this. Collect different formats, books, and articles.
Analyze and synthesize: Read the information you have and think about it. Make notes, outlines or whatever works for you.
Prepare and communicate the results: Begin writing your first draft. Walk away then come back and edit your paper.
Conduct a follow up: Talk to your teacher about your grade. What did you do wrong? What did you do right?
