The first month of school has flown by, as usual, and October is bringing in the true beginnings of fall. You’re probably now watching those far away October due dates come nearer on the calendar, and are working on the first long paper or big writing assignment of the semester. If you’re like me, new content, classes, and professors are motivation for making sure you’ve done your best before turning your first assignment in on Blackboard. As a writing tutor, here is the checklist I use and that I encourage you to try before pressing Submit.
If you find this list helpful on your first assignment, save and use the checklist for finishing touches on your papers throughout the semester!
