You have a 5 paragraph essay due on a book you just finished about "theme". What is the first step you will take to "map out" your writing?
The first step you should take when mapping out your writing is to create a graphic organizer. In this graphic organizer, you will include your topic sentence, which is found in your introduction paragraph, three to five details, which make up the body of your essay, and a conclusion paragraph. In the conclusion paragraph, create a sentence that restates your topic sentence without using the same sentence word for word. In other words, restate your main topic sentence to add closure to your essay.
Subject: Study Skills
You have a final coming up that is a large part of your final grade, how will you prepare to study all the material, without missing any key concepts?
Studying for a final test can be hard because there is a large amount of information to cover. However, there are skills we can use to help us prepare, without risking under-preparing or over-preparing. When trying to study for a final test, it is best to explore all the chapters or concepts you have covered and use or create a chapter study guide highlighting key vocabulary, ideas, or themes. Then, compiling all of your study guides together, start making flashcards to help you remember key vocabulary or concepts. Instead of flashcards, you could make a powerpoint, poster board, or journal entry where you rewrite all concepts you need to know. The process of rewriting will help you remember better. Your study techniques can be as creative as you want!
Did you invite Connor and me? Is it "me" or 'I"?
"Connor and me" is correct. This is because if you separate the questions, "Did you invite Connor?" and "Did you invite me?", they both sound correct. Therefore, using "me" is correct!
