Subject: Study Skills
How can you maximize studying in order to not only get a good score but also retain the information?
First, you will need to understand which technique you learn best at? Is it visual learning? If so you might want to try studying with pictures, graphics, PowerPoint slides, etc. If you are more of a listening learner try listening to videos online. And you learn best by reading, try having lectures written out so that you can read over your notes. Another tip is to use tricks that will maximize your time. If you like notecards, instead of writing them out by hand, use online notecards. Pay attention in class and be engaged, you will have to spend less time re-learning what you already went over. And finally, make sure you take breaks. You won't get tired out or lose focus as easily and will save time and do better in the long run.
What does nature VS nurture mean and how are they different?
Nature VS Nurture relates to the idea of how children develop over time and if their characteristics, personality traits and overall growth as a human have to do with the environment they grew up in or the innate biological preferences that transfer through genetics. Nature is the environment children grow up in which can include parenting styles, siblings, school/education, socioeconomic class and neighborhoods, peers, and classmates. Nurture is simply the idea that children are more likely born with innate feelings and traits rather than having it learned.
Subject: Gender Studies
What is intersectionality and how does it pertain to history and gender studies?
Intersectionality is the ability to understand that different identities including race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc. all have the ability to cross over each other and impact society and people's experiences in many different ways. In a simple way, it is saying that identities impact social experiences. Intersectionality is important to remember in history because people have different experiences which can impact how history is perceived and written.
