I have a lot that I want to write, but I'm not sure how to organize my thoughts clearly? Do you have any strategies?
First, let me say that you're on the right track by starting with organization! One of the biggest keys to a successful paper is beginning with an action plan before you even write your first word. Here are three tips to organizing your thoughts: 1. Brainstorm, brainstorm, brainstorm. Write all of your ideas down...no idea is a bad idea! Get all of your thoughts out on the table so that you have them right in front of you. 2. Make your ideas connect and work together. This is when you go through and refine everything that you have thrown out there. Do any of your ideas seem to duplicate? How could they be combined? How do these ideas fit into your overall argument or thesis? Create a rough outline where you organize all of your ideas into a format that is clear and concise. 3. Revise. This is the point where you go back through what you have created and determine if you have solid content and support. Have a friend or a teacher go through your outline and provide feedback and suggestions. You might have to cut something, you might have to rearrange some things...that's okay! It's all part of the process!

What caused the French and Indian War?
The French and Indian War, also known as the Seven Years' War, was caused by tension between Britain and France to extend their power. During the mid-18th century, both nations sought to further expand their reach to the Ohio Territory (which was all the land west of the Appalachian Mountains). This tension ultimately resulted in war between France and Britain, which lasted for seven years (1754-1763). Britain claimed victory at the end with the signing of the Treaty of Paris.
How do I know when to use "fewer" and when to use "less"?
Great question! The answer is quite simple: if you can count the items, then use "fewer." If you can't, then use "less." Here are some examples: **My little brother had FEWER pennies than me. **I drank LESS water than Sally.
