What is a good template or structure I can use when going about writing papers for my courses?
Look at each paper or essay as a house that you are building. It is a solid way to approach the process and it ensures that you don't skip any important steps. You want to start with the base of the house as always, and this represents the theme and purpose of the paper. You use whatever guidelines you are given to build this along with your general direction for the paper. You then go room by room. Each room serves a different purpose in the house and has its own features, just as each point and aspect of the paper is unique in its own way. However, they must all relate to the theme of the paper as should the rooms in the house. Following the rooms, you build the roof of the house. This coincides with the conclusion of your paper. It should be strong and provide a solid security to the reader's understanding of your points. Lastly, you focus on the decorations, landscaping, and painting. This is synonymous with the edits, revisions, and finishing touches applied to your paper.
Subject: Study Skills
How do I organize my time and assignments when I have so many things to work on?
Developing legitimately productive study habits in the midst of a large workload is all about understanding your personal tendencies and the nature of your classes. You have to know if you work better in the morning or at night, if you work better with others or alone, what subjects you struggle with, etc. In addition, you also need to understand what assignments are easiest and which will require the most time/resources. When you truly understand these things, you can prioritize and navigate your way through assignments one by one. It takes some time and the effort to have self awareness.
Subject: Digital Media
How do I separate my posts from other content on digital media?
The best way to create content that stands out from others is to be genuine and true to your writing style. In a world of media that is filled with click bait and fake news, people are searching for content that is authentic and truly relevant to the world around them. Whether it be a post on social media or a blog, your work will be recognized if people sense the authenticity and like your style/theme. This is truly no magic formula as the only way to appeal to others is to be who you are. All may not like it, but those who do will truly respect it. It is that respect that, in return, gains notice.
