How to Write a College Paper


Learn how to write a college-level advanced paper or essay in this free video series on writing papers for college.

Series Summary

One of the first things you'll discover as a college student is that writing in college is different from writing in high school. Of course, a lot of what your high school writing teachers taught you can be useful to you as you approach writing in college. For instance, you will want to write clearly, to have an interesting and arguable thesis, and to construct paragraphs that are coherent and focused. Still, many students enter college relying on writing strategies that served them well in high school, but won't necessarily work in college. Old formulas, such as the five-paragraph theme aren't sophisticated enough to provide a solid structure for a college paper. Old tricks, such as repeating yourself to achieve a certain word-count, won't do the trick either.So, how does one make the academic transition from high school to college level writing? In this free video series, our expert will break it down for you. You'll learn how to find and narrow a topic, how to find sources, build an outline, and ultimately write and revise a number or drafts. Successful writing is only a few short videos away, so give it the old college try!
