In high school, students are required to write several papers throughout the year, and eventually you will learn how both you and your teacher operate when it comes to papers. By this I mean, if you know your teacher will give you an “A” for a 3 page paper full of quotes, or a teacher who will write you rough draft for you, then you have learned how they “operate”. After you know how your teacher operates, then it’s time to figure out how you operate.
Some people write their best papers on the night they are assigned, so that way they have plenty of time to revise them. Then there are those who write half of their paper a week in advance and write the other half a few days prior to the due date. But personally I believe my best papers are the ones I write the night before they are due. And in some cases the moring they are due.
