Let's face it; writing essays is part and parcel of high school and college. If you're just a beginner when it comes to writing essays, there is no better starting point than talking about entire writing process in details.
Being in first grade means you almost entered the beginning of your official academic career. Prior to this, you join kindergarten and play group classes, which are mostly about developing your habits as a student. They are only a training session or a practice to help you get accustomed to the usual school routines and home assignments. Social studies is a rare subject to start in first grade. Students have to make sure that they are understanding and attempting the right subject because it is important. The subject is similar to history in many cases. You learn about different cultural, social, societal, political, and religious events in the history of a certain nation or country and understand the relationship between each. This subject is interesting only if you have a genuine interest in the subject. If the students do not have an interest in the subject then it is going to be impossible for them to continue learning and reading several names, dates and historical data.
If you are to attempt a paper in social studies and it requires you to choose a topic on your own, then you should try your best to pick something new and original. You may not be able to pick a completely original idea at this stage but you can choose a comparatively new topic relative to the rest of your class. Your teacher would also understand your capacity and scope and would only expect the same from you. The best thing about innovative topics is that they give a new direction to your paper and help you stand out from the rest of the class. You can follow the process below in order to choose a unique topic for your assignment
This saves your time and efforts
See which area needs specific attention and detail
Create a list of all the possible ideas that come to your mind about this niche
You should keep in mind that all of the topics you came up through brainstorming are not going to be relevant or logical. When you think without giving any second thoughts to the ideas, then you have a chance of being redundant or irrelevant. This is why you should eliminate and analyze the list
For every successful student it's not a secret that planning your assignments will save you a lot of time. So never omit this part of writing.
