All students at YSC are about to receive an Assignment & Research Skills handbook to assist them with their learning. The handbook aims to help students to plan, research and complete successful assignments and projects.
The handbook is structured to show students how to read their assignment and define exactly what they have been asked to do. It will them help students break their work down into manageable ‘chunks’ and create a work-plan to ensure everything is completed by the due date.
Students will receive the handbooks in English classes initially and use them to help prepare for a task they will be required to complete. The information in the handbook will be of use in all areas of study as it offers advice on developing good research skills and teaches students how to become more organised.
