A Guide to Writing an Outstanding Synopsis for Thesis Project

How To Write An Outstanding Project Synopsis Format

Every year, students across the country make the same mistake: they neglect to write an outstanding synopsis for their thesis project. It might seem like an innocent oversight, but you have to remember that this decision could mean the difference between getting into grad school and being rejected. Before you get behind in your work, take a look at this guide on how to write an outstanding synopsis for your thesis project—and make sure it doesn’t end up as another missed opportunity.

Writing an outstanding synopsis for your thesis project can be challenging, especially if you are writing in a foreign language or your field of study requires specific terminology. It’s important to start with an outline of the key points and overall goal of your thesis project before you begin writing the synopsis. This guide to writing an outstanding synopsis will help you understand what the purpose of the document is and how to create it in the most effective way possible, so that your reader has all the information he or she needs to make decisions about your research project and its publication process.

If you’re working on a thesis project and you’re writing an overview, or synopsis, of your research, then you want it to be as high-quality as possible so that anyone looking at it will be compelled to read the full paper. What exactly makes an outstanding synopsis? In this article, we’ll outline what elements are important to include in your thesis project synopsis and how to make them compelling so that your work gets the attention it deserves!

Keep it short

A one- or two-page synopsis is ideal, though three pages are acceptable if your study is complicated and requires more description. While it’s fine to include relevant tables and figures in your outline, you don’t want them to consume too much space. Avoid adding more than a couple of paragraphs on methodology; that’s best left for a methods section of your full proposal. If possible, avoid including an abstract (it should be obvious why you’re conducting your research). But if you absolutely need one, keep it concise and focus on what makes your proposed research unique. Don’t use industry jargon. Instead, use plain language so everyone can understand your point—including reviewers who may not have experience with your field. Keep all formatting consistent and clear: limit font sizes to 10 points or less, choose simple fonts like Times New Roman or Arial , and make sure there’s plenty of white space around text boxes so they’re easy to read. Most importantly: show confidence! Write as if you know exactly how your research will turn out—because once you’ve written a good synopsis, it’ll help ensure that outcome!
Onwards towards my goal!!

Don’t forget the reader

Your aim should be that your synopsis is clear, concise and easy to read. You will already have a PhD when you write your thesis. You’ll know all about your subject and so writing in a technical manner will not be something you struggle with. But what you might struggle with is remembering that your audience doesn’t have all of that background knowledge on hand and will need it explained clearly. Remember, what’s obvious to you might not be obvious to someone else! Keep in mind that if it doesn’t make sense in your synopsis then chances are it won’t make sense in your thesis either.

Only focus on your research

A typical dissertation will run between 20,000 and 40,000 words in length—that’s a lot of material. While it can be easy to get lost in all of your own writing, it’s important that you don’t. Keep your audience in mind from start to finish. If you find yourself veering off track, ask yourself if it directly ties into what you are trying to prove with your research. If not, try and focus on trimming down unnecessary details. You want readers coming away from your dissertation with a solid grasp of how you conducted your research and how you were able to relate that back into real-world applications or solutions.

Project Synopsis Format

As a writer and editor, it was helpful to learn how to write an effective project synopsis format. This is because many non-fiction books are based on their experiences or research. This form of writing will assist me in connecting with my audience. When creating a book, one needs attention-grabbing sentences or quotes that lead into greater description within a paragraph. I am using examples in order to practice my project synopsis format when writing papers.

Be technical in terms of formatting

It is true that you do not have to follow a specific format for writing a synopsis, but it does need to be short and concise. This will help your reader (the one who has been assigned your thesis project) get a good idea of what you are trying to say in your thesis project. It should also go without saying that it must be clear, well-written and grammatically correct. However, as we will discuss later in detail, there are some specific technical details that you need to bear in mind before writing a synopsis of your thesis.

Make it stand out

Start by analyzing your work, especially if you’ve already written a few drafts. Why do you think your research is interesting? What does it offer that’s unique or otherwise valuable? In some cases, all it takes is adding those thoughts and insights into your synopsis. You may also need to make a case that your project will be of interest to readers; if so, how can you make that obvious in your synopsis? For example, if you’re writing about developments in climate change research, include a brief explanation of what exactly is at stake and why everyone should care.

A COMPREHENSIVE REPORT ON THE NEXUS BETWEEN DISCIPLINE AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE

ABSTRACT

 

Students are priceless assets and most essential elements in education.  It is absolutely necessary to direct students to exhibit acceptable attitude and behavior within and outside the school.  In an attempt to achieve an organized and peaceful school environment and maintain law and order, school management specifies rules and regulations to guide the activities of members of educational organization.

 

Student discipline is a prerequisite to almost everything a school has to offer student. Discipline is the culture and climate of the school.  In order for a satisfactory climate to exist within a school a certain level of discipline must exist.  In schools where discipline is a serious problem, for example, where student bully others, parents can transfer their children to better schools. And because the well behaved usually perform well, their transfer can affect the overall performance of that school.

 

Therefore, the study looks at causes and nature of indiscipline and how it models our students’ attitude.

 

It also gives attention for the role of parents, teachers and religious bodies in maintaining discipline so as to cultivate good attitude on the part of our student.

 

Finally the project gives required recommendation that will help educationists in maintaining positive attitude to enhance discipline in our schools.

CHAPTER ONE

 

INTRODUCTION

 

1.1    Background to the Study

Students are priceless assets and most essential elements in education.  It is absolutely necessary to direct students to exhibit acceptable attitude and behaviour within and outside the school. In an attempt to achieve an organized and peaceful school environment and maintain law and order, school management specify rules and regulations to guide the activities of members of the educational organization.

 

Students discipline is a prerequisite to almost everything a school has to offer students (self and vocabulary 2002). Self and vocabulary further link discipline with both the culture and climate of the school thus, in order for a satisfactory climate to exist within a school, a certain level of discipline must exist. In schools where discipline is a serious problem, for example, where students bully other parents can transfer their children to better schools. And because the well behaved usually perform (Rigby 2000), their transfer can affect the overall academic performance of that school.

Students’ misbehaviour is a prevailing problem affecting school and even academic performance of students across many nations around the world.

 

Students’ misconduct in the classroom interferes with teaching and learning and it’s thought to be precaution to later school dropout and similar negative social outcomes. Students’ behavioural problems are also thought to be a learning contributor to teachers’ stress and attrition. Serious breaches of school discipline policy can have   profound negative effects on teachers.

 

One of the most widespread reasons for bad discipline however, is usually a student’s inability to cope with the task.  The noisiest students will demonstrate their frustration by loud outburst, disruptive behaviour, while the rest of the class may remain passive (Sternburg R.J & Williams, W.W 2002).

 

Serious breaches of school discipline policy include assault by student on teachers and other students, verbal abuse, offensive language against teachers and other students, sexual and other forms of harassment, treat and intimidation of teachers and other students, possessing offensive weapons, supplying of illegal drugs, intrusions into the school or classrooms by adults with the intention of confronting teachers have become a case of study that needed immediate attention.

 

As the problem now is rather alarming and jeopardizing the administration of the secondary schools performance of students academically and the believe that findings of the study will emit some powerful rays of light to rectify the situation.

 

1.2    Statement of the Study

The purpose of this study is to identify the students discipline problems such as truancy, absenteeism, stealing, bullying, and fighting among the secondary school students in Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State based on the effect over their academic performance.

 

Indiscipline in schools is certainly a matter of immediate concern to the teaching profession. Ensuring discipline in school should be the concern of everyone.

 

One of the salient factors that attributes to the problem is peer group influence. Negative attitude of their friends such as irresponsibility, in-cooperation, time management, disrespecting adult, disobeying rules and regulations are some of the contributing factors from the peer group for the prevailing problems.

 

The good reputation and fame of most secondary schools have been dented and image tarnished. People no longer have trust and confidence in students. Most universities and polytechnics conduct test for successful students even after passing their examinations.

 

It is very important that the school management should play a dominant role to ensure that all the students perform well not only in academics but also in good behavior to avoid negative impact.

 

1.3    Purpose of the Study

The broad aim of this study is to examine how discipline affects the academic performance of senior secondary school students.   To achieve the above aim therefore, the following objectives will be my guide.

The assumption that the school system is besieged with a lot of indiscipline among the teachers and the students is central to this study.

 

Evaluate the attitude of students to alcoholism, disobedience, examination malpractices, forgery, cigarette smoking and strike demonstration as well as bullying and stealing. Discipline problem of our youths need a decisive attention of the society at large. We need to examine critically how it affects the academic performance of students.

 

1.5    Research Questions

The questions to be handled in this study would include the following:

  • Is the student attitude towards truancy encourages students academic performance.

  • Stealing has nothing to do with the academic performance of the student.
  • Dangerous fighting among students contributes to low academic performance of senior secondary school students.
  • Peer group influence promotes the academic performance of secondary school students.

 

 

  • Research Hypothesis
