Yeah. I know I can't give anyone a lesson, or teach them something. This is more a reminder, I guess.
Ahh, report-writing. I exceed in the free-writing, but reports are not my expertise. I will share what I have learned over the past years of writing
Define your purpose. What I mean by that is you need to have a solid idea of what you are writing about, horses, Abraham Lincoln etc.
Usually with school you are assigned a topic, of which you are to write a report! So that is usually already done!
Use active/engaging language! Use words and 'WWW.ASIA' if you don't know what that is, I will explain below. Things that make your report unique;
"Many people were scared of the British Redcoats."- this is a fine sentence, but it could be better, let's use some dress-ups.
"Most of the Americans were terrified of the destructive Redcoats."- you think that sounds a little better? More interesting, it catches the reader's eye, so to speak.
Edit; proofread; do it again. I often have a friend, or sibling read my paper before I turn it in to my Mom. They can decide whether it is boring, or maybe a little too descriptive (if that's possible)
This stands for:
WHEN, WHILE, WHERE, AS, SINCE, IF, ALTHOUGH.
WWW.ASIA, is used for sentence starters, use these at the start of your sentence! (Like the title suggests)
This is all I can think of right now, if I come up with more tips on the subject I will update ya'll.
