Subject: Study Skills
A) Is color-coding my notes worth it? B) Should I study intensely the night before?
A) It depends on how your brain works. For some people, typing or writing it down is enough. For others, the color can help their brain recall the information during an exam or test. For example, if you know the answer was written or typed in a specific color, it can be easier to remember what it said. B) Not always. If you have gotten into the preferred habit of studying with plenty of time before the exam day, this will not even be necessary. What works best is thoroughly studying on a Monday, reading over the study guide created with my help Tuesday morning and evening before a solid night's sleep, and then reading the study guide again before the exam on Wednesday. Cramming before the exam will not help as much as you may think as your brain cannot hold enough information learned in a short amount of time. Combine that with being tired, and it will definitely not help your grade.

What is a part of Maria Montessori's philosophy? How can it be applied to a typical classroom?
Montessori believed that a child's spontaneous desire to learn should drive their experiences. Therefore, children should be allowed to switch activities as frequently and infrequently as they would like. Choosing their task is also an element of the Montessori belief. Students learn best with real-life objects created to teach them concepts of math, science, and literacy, which can all be done independently. This independence suggests that the teachers should only intervene when necessary and that learning should be child-guided as well as child-centered.
What is the difference between a pirouette and a soutenu?
A pirouette is a full, 360-degree turn begun on two legs and ends on two legs. The leg is in a posse position, typically. Often times, this is done in the center of the room. A soutenu, however, is a 180-degree turn. One will end this turn with the opposite leg in front. This is a common part of the barre experience and is done to switch sides.
