Question:

How do I write an introduction?

Inactive
Michelle H.
Answer:

The most important things an academic introduction do are: 1) tell your reader what your thesis is (what you're arguing for) and 2) tell your reader why that matters (does it solve a problem for them? point out new info that is for some reason important for them to know?). There are a lot of ways to structure an introduction, but these two main things should be present to ensure that your reader knows what to expect AND is interested in what the paper has to say.

Question:

How do I close read a poem?

Inactive

Answer:

There's no one way to do this, but a good way to get started with a close reading is to notice what stands out to you. Is there something weird or unexpected? Is there an interesting choice of words, or a part of the poem that surprised you? You might even try reading the poem out loud to see what it sounds like. Then ask yourself: why would the poem do this? What does this weird thing achieve, or how does it change how you understand the poem?

Question:

How do I use a semicolon?

Inactive

Answer:

Semicolons are used to join two independent clauses, which basically means that you use them in the same way you would use a period. Deciding when to use a semicolon instead of a period is a matter of style. Typically, a semicolon is used when the two clauses relate directly to each other, whereas splitting the two clauses into two sentences with a period symbolizes more of a break in ideas. That's why you often see semicolons used with linking words like "however."
