As the Student Writing Specialist for JWU Online, professors often tell me that their students struggle with understanding assignment instructions.
Here’s how to tackle the sometimes frustrating process of following complex or lengthy directions.
1. Read all assignment instructions carefully as soon as you receive them.
This will save you time and stress later on! If there is something you do not understand, be sure to reach out to your instructor as soon as you are able, as this is when his or her feedback will be most useful.
