Seven College Writing Lessons 1. Consider All Your Options – your conclusions should come after the evidence. Use your critical thinking skills. 2. Planning Saves Time in the Long Run – outline before you start. It helps you write more efficiently and improves the quality of your writing. 3. Begin with Your Claim – This should give the reader an idea of what you are going to be talking about. This is called your thesis statement. 4. Use the “Rule” to Support Your Claim – tie your evidence to your claim. This helps your reader see your point of view. 5. You MUST have evidence – unless it is a conspiracy theory 6. Make Sure Evidence is Valid and Credible – If needed, use a bibliography or a “Works Cited” page 7. Try and Have Multiple Pieces of Evidence for Each Claim – this will make your argument stronger.
