There are numerous and different types of assignments and each type has its own features and follow its own structure. When writing assignments,there are disciplinary differences one must follow.Some important structural features are common to all disciplines. For instance, it is paramount that all assignments have at least three parts; the introduction, the main body, and a conclusion.
The three main bodies in assignment writing;
- The introduction
It is important to ensure that the introduction is as convincing as possible to capture the attention of the reader. The two most commonly used styles of writing an introduction are deductive and inductive styles. A deductive style involves moving from general introduction to a specific problem.An inductive style involves moving from specific to general.Thus the specific points add up to a general conclusion.
- Main body
The main body of an assignment is important based on the disciplinary perspective.The main reason for giving an assignment is to assess whether students understood what they have been taught. Also whether they can use it to a specific research problem. Always ensure that you have stuck to the point. Remain analytical rather than descriptive. Furthermore, it is important to ensure that you do not write anything the introduction didn’t promise.
- The conclusion
The conclusion should remind the reader about the principal arguments, their interventions and whether it differs from the available literature on the subject. However, it is important to note that all assignments do not necessarily follow all these steps in total. Therefore it is good to be creative and twist your writings to meet the course requirements or those of the instructor.
