What are the different levels of social work practice, and what do they consist of?
Currently, the social work profession widely recognizes 3 levels of practice: micro, mezzo (meso), and macro. These levels are usually thought of as being distinct, but they actually work along side each other and constantly influence the others. Micro social work is the smallest and most personal level, mainly consisting of individuals and families. A social workers main responsibility on this level is to work with these individuals and families to solve intrapersonal (within a person) and interpersonal (amongst people) problems. Mezzo or meso practice is thought of as the medium level. It deals with small-to-medium-sized groups, such as neighborhoods, schools or other local organizations. Social workers engaged in mezzo practice are often also engaged in micro and/or macro social work to ensure that the needs and challenges of individual clients are understood and addressed along with larger social issues. The final and largest level is macro social work. This level is concerned with over arching systems such as healthcare, policy, law and legislation, and international associations. The goals of social workers in this level is to intervene and advocate for systematic change that will benefit those on the lower mezzo and micro levels.

I learn best in a classroom setting when I am able to hear the teacher speak. What is the best way for me to study for my online biology class?
As an auditory learner, you best ingest information through active listening. If you're not able to hear a teacher lecture, there are a few things that you can do to make studying much more effective for you. My first suggestion would be to utilize any video resources that your teacher provides. If there are no videos provided, do your own search for videos that you can watch on the topic you're learning about. Other effective study methods are to read out loud the information you want to take it, and repeat facts to remember them. Using mnemonics, acronyms, or song tunes could also be a fun way to memorize! Finally, discusses topics with a study group or attending Q&A sessions would be productive learning activities for you.
When it comes to alliteration, when should I use it?
You would use alliteration when you want the reader to focus on a particular part of your writing, like important keywords that you want to stand out. Companies use this method a lot; for example- Best Buy, Krispy Kreme, or Dunkin Donuts. Additionally, like most figurative language devices alliteration creates a rhythm and mood that can have hidden meanings. A repetitive "S" sound could imply snake-like qualities associated with being sneaky or dangerous.
