Question:

I've been asked to write a five page research paper about the role of women during Civil War, and I need to use primary and scholarly sources. I'm not sure what that means, or where to find them.

Answer:

Okay, you're needing to write about the role of women during the Civil War. Let's work together to find the information you need to make your paper amazing. First, why don't you tell me what you think a primary source might be? Primary sources can be anything you have that is a firsthand telling of the experience. Here are some resources you can use (insert resources here). Let's start collecting information, and working on your bibliography as we go. Now, let's see what words we can think of to use as search terms. You can use this graphic organizer to make an outline of what you're finding to be the most interesting, and start to formulate your thesis and get your essay going.

Question:

I've been asked to read Shakespeare in class, and I can't understand what I'm reading. It just doesn't make sense!

Answer:

First, let's look at what you're finding most confusing. I'm imagining it's the language, since we certainly don't speak that way today! Let's look at the story line by line, and make some meaning out of words that are so different than what we're used to. As we go through, we can rewrite them in our own words, and go from there.

Answer:

Let's first uncover what books you've read as part of your summer reading, then we can work on the rest of the assignment. What two novels had similarities or notable differences? What are "literary elements"? As we list them together, we can look for more similarities and differences, and work on an essay outline.
