Timm's how-to sheets

These how-to sheets are general guidelines for writing assignments that I have used in the past. I provide them here as a service to students who might find them helpful for my assignments or for assignments in other classes. Always follow the specific instructions on the syllabus or given by your instructor. Also remember that writing essays is not an exact science, and every writer will have an individual approach. The suggestions here are meant to spur on your creativity and to give you some understanding of the expectations of a scholarly audience.
