When I try to take tests, I completely freak out. I can't remember what I learn and I don't know how to relax ever after I've studied, what can I do?
Three letters helped me solve all of my test anxiety. M.P.R. These letters stand for the different steps to relaxing before a big test. Mental Preparation-Be prepared, know the material. Review the material whenever you can. Arrive to your testing location early. This is to limit the most stress in the very beginning. Physical Preparation- Get plenty of sleep the night before so your brain can be alert as possible. Eat breakfast so you are working with the most energy. Sit away from doors to prevent distractions. Relaxation- Do not talk to fellow classmates about the test or fellow test scores. This will just encourage your own anxiety to try and do better or they may test you it is a hard test and psych yourself out. Take ten deep breaths when you first sit down in front of the desk in order to set your mind on the task at hand. Go for a walk after the test is finished to blow off steam.
Some things in a story are true (facts) and others are someone’s opinion. Think about what was the fact and what was opinion in The Great Gatsby when describing Daisy.
Facts are statements that can be proven they are in actual existence. An opinion is typically evoked by emotion. A belief or judgement what someone thinks about a particular thing. Ex: Daisy is a young woman from Louisville, Kentucky. She is Nick’s cousin and the object of Gatsby’s love. This is what Daisy is thus it is a fact, we have been told this in the novel from multiple characters. Ex: Nick sees Daisy as a careless person who smashes things up and then retreats behind her money. This is Nick's emotion about Daisy as a person. At this part in the story we are not sure if Daisy is a careless person who hides solely behind money we only understand this from Nick's point of view.
