My teacher wants me to write a story with a beginning, middle, end. I did not know what any of that is. How do I do this?
The best way to write a story is to plan it. You need to decide on a setting (or where,) characters (or who,) and a problem (or what.) Once you plan the story in this way, you will get an idea of what you need to do next. Write beginning on a piece of paper. About half-way down the paper, write middle. Last, write the word, end. Introduce your characters and setting beside the word "beginning." In the middle, think of something that could happen that would be a problem, or interesting to happen to your character! Last, you need to solve the problem. That is beginning, middle, end! Copy the story neatly and don't write beginning, middle, or end. If you did a good job, your teacher will see those parts of your story without a label!
There a few mnemonic devices that you can use while studying. When you must learn the steps of a process, the mnemonic device is helpful.. For example: I am trying to learn the stages of Erikson's development. I need to remember that there are eight. Infancy, Toddler, Early Childhood, Elementary, Adolescence, Young Adulthood, Adulthood, Old Age
The sillier the mnemonic, the easier it is to remember. Using every first letter of the stages, I might think, "Indeed, to eat every ant yields angry oxygen!" I practice that a few times, filling in the correct stages for each letter, and I soon know Erikson's 8 stages well enough to name them on a test!
How do I know whether to use "I" or "me" in a sentence?
The quickest way to know when to use I or me as a pronoun is to say the sentence with each of the pronouns separately. The paper came addressed to Mother and (I, me.) 1) The paper came addressed to (I.) 2) The paper came addressed to (me.) (correct)
