One of the first steps prior to creating any type of written manuscript is to create an outline. What are the three main components of an outline and what should be included in each section?
The three component of an outline are the Introduction, the Body, and the Conclusion. The Introduction is where you introduce what you will be writing about. The Introduction is also where your thesis statement will appear. The Body of your paper is where you will go into detail about what you are writing about and where you will provide the evidence to support your thesis statement. The Body of your paper will be the largest portion of your paper and it may be helpful to create a very itemized outline for this section. The last component of your outline will be the Conclusion. This is where you will wrap up your thoughts, connect them back to your thesis, and make any concluding statements. It may be helpful to write your concluding statement in your outline, and continue to revisit it as you review your paper and make any final edits.
Subject: Study Skills
Name three ways that you can start to improve your high school study routine?
1. Get Organized: Planners and calendar apps are a great way to stay organized and to stay on top of assignments and test dates. Make sure to record all test dates and due dates for any assignments and projects as soon as they are given to you. Check your planner daily to stay on track and always look ahead to see when future projects are due. Color coding your tasks can be a great way for you to find things at a glance. For example, you can record all your test dates in green, all project dates in blue, ect. This way when you open your planner you can find items quickly. 2. Do a Little Bit Everyday. The best path to success in anything is to practice. This also applies to studying. Don't wait until the night before the test or even the week before to start studying for it, especially if it is a subject that is challenging. Be sure to review your notes in that area daily, even if you haven't been given homework. In subjects like math and foreign languages it may be helpful to give yourself practice problems, where you are able to practice doing extra equations or vocabulary in addition to your homework. There are a lot of websites and apps that are great for this, in addition to any resources that your teacher may give you. 3. Take Good Notes. Note taking is very important to improving your study skills. Note taking can take on many different forms and not one method works for everyone. The first thing you should do is find which method works for you. Do you learn better with handwritten notes or typed? Would it be better for you if you could record the lesson via video or voice recorder? Once you figure out which note taking method works best, the rest is all about listening. They key to taking good notes is being a good listener and determining which information is important for you to record. Usually your teacher will point out the information you need to focus on so that you do not feel the need to write down every word. Keeping your notes organized is also key. This can be done a number of ways. Making bullets/ numeric lists of key information is a great way to start. Color coding can also be very helpful with this and you can write certain notes in specific colors or use colored high lighters.
Subject: AP Art History
In Harriet Powers' "Bible Quilt" created between 1885-1886, Powers' used a specific quilting technique to visually narrate stories from the Bible's Old and New Testaments. What is the name of this technique and in what other African art making tradition can this technique be found?
The quilting technique that Harriet Powers' used to visually narrate stories from The Bible's Old and New Testaments in her "Bible Quilt" is called applique. Applique is when a quilter sews pieces of fabric in the form of shapes or images on top of a larger quilt square to create a design or picture. Evidence of applique can also be found in the banners of the Dahomey people of Benin, where each banner serves as a record of their history.
