no seriously. my method is to break it down. your theme (which is your thesis) first of all has to be one you can elaborate on for the required length of the essay (be it 2 to 3 pages). your intro like any, is supposed to hook the audience with a strong statement, a small story, or an informative perspective (pretty much up to your perogative) which is followed by a thesis, than within the following paragraphs your have a theme per paragraph to support your thesis. For example, my thesis is: "The best treatment for cancer is prevention" There; i made a statement, and now. How do i support it? well I break it down in the following paragraphs. ok, here is where i get "creative" For my first paragraph following my thesis I support my thesis using information. for example: "Recent research studies show that a holistic nutritional approach reduces the risk of cancer by 70% percent blah blah..." i finish my paragraph and theme myself for another paragraph, and continue doing that till i fufill my criteria. now i'm gonna stop before i sound like i'm jabbering...

For me:
- Always use MSWord, justify, break pages, etc
- Research mostly from internet (if can't find use books)
- If it's not such a high grading report, i do it at least 1 week b4 submission
- Do citations like crap
- Never check again once done

And somehow I can manage to score reasonably well.. Wahahaha!

This is how to write a good Report.

-Title and abstract: These are the most-read parts of a report. This is how you attract attention to your writing.

-Introduction: Most reports start with an introduction section.
Introducion notes*
*What is the setting of the problem?
*What exactly is the problem you are trying to solve?
*Why is the problem important to solve?
*Why is the problem difficult to solve?
*How have you solved the problem?
*What are the main results?
*What is the summary of your contributions?

-Background: This is expanded upon into a separate section if there is sufficient background which the general reader must understand before knowing the details of your work. It is usual to state that "the reader who knows this background can skip this section" while writing this section.

-Past/related work: It is common to have this as a separate section, explaining why what you have done is something novel.

-Technical sections: The main body of the report may be divided into multiple sections as the case may be. You may have different sections which delve into different aspects of the problem. The organization of the report here is problem specific. You may also have a separate section for statement of design methodology, or experimental methodology, or proving some lemmas in a theoretical paper.

-Results: This is part of the set of technical sections, and is usually a separate section for experimental/design papers. You have to answer the following questions in this section:

* What aspects of your system or algorithm are you trying to evaluate? That is, what are the questions you will seek to answer through the evaluations?
* Why are you trying to evaluate the above aspects?
* What are the cases of comparison? If you have proposed an algorithm or a design, what do you compare it with?
* What are the performance metrics? Why?
* What are the parameters under study?
* What is the experimental setup? Explain the choice of every parameter value (range) carefully.
* What are the results?
* Finally, why do the results look the way they do?

- Future work: This section in some cases is combined along with the "conclusions" section. Here you state aspects of the problem you have not considered and possibilities for further extensions.

- Conclusions: Readers usually read the title, abstract, introduction, and conclusions. In that sense, this section is quite important. You have to crisply state the main take-away points from your work. How has the reader become smarter, or how has the world become a better place because of your work?

I am the worst procrastinator ever the first thing I do is research for my paper then I wait for a while like a couple days before it's due and write a really rough draft and the night before it's due I edit it and add more. I usually do really well on writing papers lol.

I follow the instructions given as close as I can . Usually , I have essays for English only .
They`re always done in class . That`s all I have to do - follow my teacher`s intructions .
I usually write a good copy but I always end up taking a lot of time editing my work sooo ...
no more good copies . My teacher has to stick with my edited rough draft .
