These sources will not write your papers for you or proofread your work, but they do offer invaluable assistance.
Read or reread your Assignment.
Know exactly what it is asking you to do:
When is the work due? How is the work to be submitted (on paper, electronically, or by some other means)?
Look especially for key words: Are you being asked to describe, to identify, to compare, to contrast, or to compare and contrast, to define, to analyze or to justify?
Where is your support for your work to come from? From research? From reading the textbook? From course notes?
Keep the assignment handy as you work on your project. Refer to it often to remind you of what you are being asked to do. If you're still not sure, ask your Professor before you spend a lot of time working on the assignment.
