It has been almost 19 years since I was a high school student and had to write a paper.The few rules that I remember from that time are irrelevant and don’t apply to college writing.One of the first differences I noticed about college writing vs high school writing is Wordformatting. Most of my papers where hand written in high school but, the few I did have to typeout were not as specific or detailed about the arrangement or format. The expectations for collegewriting is at a higher standard than high school writing.Writing clearly, formatting your paper accurately, expanding our vocabulary, the structureof our writing, and how we use and document in text citations and bibliographies. Start out bigand get small. The first sentence of each paragraph should be the topic sentence. Findopportunities to be critical by researching, questioning, and not taking everything at face value.
