Questions

Subject: Writing

TutorMe
Question:

Why do some children write freely, seemingly, spontaneously, while others show little interest in expressing themselves and avoid writing whenever possible?

Answer:

What seems to make a difference between children who are writers and non-writers, is the feeling of involvement. Those who are able to latch onto an idea and deal with it while reluctant writers failed to interact with ideas and generate interest; they tended to drop out at the very beginning and not allow themselves to become involved in the story. It is important to stimulate productive mental activity in children who lack the urge to explore and idea and harness and experiment with such.

Subject: Literature

Question:

What does English literature teach you?

Answer:

It is a subject that focuses on the study of literary texts from throughout history. The study of texts will allow students to analyze the workings of the English language outside that of literature, including language-based communication in all kinds of forms and contexts, opening the mind to a wider interpretation and understanding of the world through texts and multimedia.

Question:

How do I properly hyphenate "well thought out"? Is it spelt well-thought-out, or well thought out?

Inactive

Answer:

It depends on how you use it... if it is preceding the word it modifies, then it should be hyphenated: e.g. He paused for a bit and then gave a well-thought-out answer However, if it follows the word it modifies, no hyphenation is necessary: e.g. He paused for a bit, wanting to make sure his answer was well thought out.
