Getting an A on an English Paper

Top-notch Advice
Hayley Gilliland, HS Senior

Having written many English papers for high school and college classes I can honestly say this advice all holds true with my experience. I have especially found that the note about a weak thesis statement ruining a paper is dead on. Usually when writing a paper for a class I give myself plenty of time to write and rewrite as well as revise the thesis. However, sometimes I have procrastinated and struggled through an unorganized paper all because of a poorly written thesis.

Thoughts on Writing an A paper
A.E. Brown, College Sophomore

I found Lynch's tips and thoughts to be helpful because from my experience as a tutor and as a college student, most students want to get good grades on papers but won't always know how to go about writing something that will score well. I think one crucial piece of the writing process that many students skimp on is close, critical readings of the text, and I appreciate how thoroughly Lynch explains this key piece. He also includes practical exercises for students to try as well as outside resources. This guide is a good starting point for any student wanting to write an A paper.
