This week, I have been focusing my blog posts on writing papers for the different learning styles. Today I will be focusing on interpersonal learners – those who learn best by conversation and relating to others. What are the implications for how they should write papers?
Even though paper writing is thought of as a solitary activity, it doesn’t need to be. The following are some ideas for social learners to get the most out of their paper writing assignments.
1. Get together with a friend to first discuss your writing and then write. Ask each other questions like:
“What are you focusing on in your paper?”
“Do these subtopics make sense within this paper?”
2. Read the assignment with other students from your class and get multiple opinions o
3. Throughout the week or so during which you are working on the assignment, discuss the paper topic with others. You never know what ideas a friend or family member might contribute.
4. Hire a tutor. If you want someone to discuss your writing with you in depth, consider hiring a writing tutor. He or she will be more than happy to sit down with you and discuss ideas and ways to improve your writing.
