Subject: Study Skills
What do you consider to be your biggest weakness in terms of study skills?
Procrastination is my biggest weakness. If I need to work on/study something I am not fond of, I will put it off until I absolutely have to do it. Then I rush through it and not fully understand it. I find it helps me when I make a list of what I need to do, and then work on my least favorite subject first.
What do you consider to be the most dynamic character in To Kill a Mockingbird? Why?
I believe Atticus is the most dynamic character in the novel because he has to try and abide by his own personal morals and beliefs while also dealing with the society he lived in and raised his children. He did not bow to conformity and was able to bring more reason to the town than was expected by many. He fought against prejudice, racism, stereotypes, and did so with courage and strength. In fact, I think he grew in many ways throughout the novel as his children and townsfolk influenced his change.
I'm not a writer and I don't like to read, so how can I get better grades in my classes?
When you have to do something you don't enjoy going, it can seem like the worst task ever, but that doesn't mean you can't learn to appreciate it or even enjoy it. Sometimes you just need the right guidance and help to get you to the place you want to be.
