Question:

How do I know my thesis statement is clear?

Inactive
Kayla S.
Answer:

A thesis statement should be short, to the point, and arguable. For example, "Climate change is destroying forests, which in turn harms the lives of wildlife." You should make sure your thesis statement always appears in your introductory paragraph. This makes it easier for your reader to identify exactly what you are going to discuss throughout the rest of your essay.

Question:

How do I analyze text? When do I know to highlight or save passages when reading material for class?

Answer:

Analyzing a particular text is often paired with in-class discussion. Depending on what particular themes, characters, or motifs you discuss in class, you should be sure to highlight those words, passages, or even entire pages in order to save it for later use. Make sure that what you highlight is relevant to the plot of the story.

Question:

What is the difference between a semi-colon and a comma? How can I make sure I use them correctly?

Answer:

A comma can be used in many different ways when writing a sentence, which often makes it difficult to figure out whether one is needed in a sentence or not. However, a semi-colon is only used for one purpose - to separate two independent clauses. For example, "The silence deepened; the room chilled." If you replace the semi-colon in the sentence to a period, both sentences will still read correctly. If you can identify whether a semi-colon is needed or not, it makes it easier for you to think of other options, such as adding a comma. Most commonly, a comma is placed before a coordinating conjunction (and, but, for, or, so, etc.). For example, "I do not love Shakespeare, but I still have those books."
