How should I best study for exams?
There are numerous ways to study for exams. Research has shown that studying material for every day will help you comprehend the information. This does not mean that you need to study for hours every day. Instead, write down 2 or 3 main ideas/pieces of information every day after class. Dedicate 5 minutes every day to study those important details. In addition, you can create hand motions and mnemonics to remember difficult vocabulary. Before exams, of course, you need to study a little bit more. On many websites, it says that writing something is the equivalent of reading it seven times. It is a good idea to type of your notes from class. Before class, use a tutor to help you understand topics you struggle with and have a classmate or parent quiz you on the material.
Design a quantitative study. Write a research question and a short paragraph about how you would create this study.
The study will answer the question "where is the most popular place to study among Fordham University students?" I would create a questionnaire, including questions such as; "do you most often study in the library?" "do you most often study in a dorm room?" "do you most often study in a dorm-lounge?" "do you most often study in an on-campus cafe?" "do you most often study off-campus?" I would ask Fordham University students to complete the surveys and ensure them that the surveys are confidential and they can decide not to participate at any time. I would then compare the answers on the surveys to determine the most popular place to study among Fordham University students.
Read the Gold Cadillac by Mildred Taylor and the Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. Then, write a short paragraph comparing the attitude of the 'Lois's family and Starr's family toward the police.
Both 'Lois's family and Starr's family are African American, which influences their attitudes toward the police, and they live in fear of the police. The parents in both books give their children strict instructions on what to do if a cop pulls them over or starts talking to them. In "The Hate U Give," Starr's dad tells her "Starr-Starr, you do whatever they tell you to do..." This shows that the Carter family is nervous about being hurt by the police, even if they have no reason to be afraid. When Wilma's father is pulled over by police, she remembers "we were scared." This shows a similar fear of police.
