A Guide to Writing Assignments: Order Now!

Taking the metaphor of constructing a building, 'Building an Argument: A Guide to Writing Assignments' takes a flatpack approach to academic writing and helps you or your students build an assignment from the ground up. The guide was written by Helen Carroll and published by AHEAD and is aimed at all third level students who need help putting together their academic essays, although it is particularly helpful for students with a specific learning difficulty.

It became obvious to me that many students struggle, not because they can’t understand the material, but because they cannot write assignments….I have put together an ‘assignment flatpack’ - a simple system to enable you to construct an assignment with the minimum of fuss. - Helen Carroll.

Single copies of the guide are available for €5 + p&p from our online shop. Last year, several colleges bought copies for all their students and we've had fantastic feedback on how useful they've proven in aiding students to settle into academic life. With that in mind, there are bulk discounts available as follows:

  • 100 or more copies = 10% discount
  • 1000 or more copies = 20% discount

To get a bulk quotation, email ahead@ahead.ie with your request.
