i have to write on a topic for about 300-400 words . topic is 'IS HOMEWORK HARMFUL OR HELPFUL'

  • English -

    First you must decide which you believe: is it helpful or is it harmful?

    Once you have decided that, you need to follow the writing process:

    Prewriting: brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement

    Writing: write first draft by starting with section II of your outline; write introduction after the body of the paper is written; write the conclusion last.

    Polishing: revise, concentrating first on the body of the paper, then the intro, then the concl (revision = making sure ideas are logical and sequential and support your thesis); proofread (spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)

    Do you have a thesis yet? Have you done your brainstorming (and maybe research) yet? Have you written an outline?
