The thought of having to do homework doesn’t make students start jumping up and down in delight. However, sometimes once you get into your flow and rhythm you realize that far from being the massive drain on your time that you have always thought it to be, it can when done correctly be a great learning experience.
Your English lecturer is not on a mission to torture you. They simply want to help you get the best possible grade and go on to have an amazing career. So, how can you do your English assignments effectively? Here are seven useful tips to get you started:
The key to doing anything well is to, first of all, understand exactly what it is that is being asked of you. There is no point handing in an essay on Hamlet when in fact you were tasked with writing about Much Ado about Nothing! Ensuring that you understand your homework before you start doing it is a no-brainer.
Again, this probably sounds like logic to most of you. However, you would be surprised at just how many students skip class for whatever reason and then expect to be able to breeze through their homework. These assignments follow on from each other. If you aren’t up to speed on your coursework, how can you be expected to do your out of school stuff?
While a lot of answers can be sourced online these days, you will actually need to make sure that you have a copy of whatever text you are studying, particularly for English Literature. The internet is great, but it is not the be all and end all.
There is no point attempting to rush an essay or other key assignment. Trying to do everything at the last minute will only serve to stress you out.
English is one of those subjects where a certain degree of creativity is required. There is no point even attempting to start work if you have left your muse someplace else.
If you have taken English at a higher level then you are doing so for a reason. It is useful to remember this when tasked with an unpleasant assignment.
As with anything in life, you will achieve better results with hard work and determination. Give it your all, and then even if you don’t get the grade that you were hoping for, you won’t need to beat yourself up.
