Question:

How do I study for a history test?

Inactive

Answer:

First, let's figure out how you prefer to learn? Do you retain information best when presented visually? Do you have to hear it? Does writing things down solidify facts in your head? There is no one "correct" study method -- you have to find what works for you.For example, if writing things down is how you best remember things, try rewriting the study guide by hand. It is time-intensive, but it is going to help you connect with information in a much deeper way than simply reading it over and over again.

Question:

How do I find quality and reliable databases for an assignment?

Answer:

The best place to start would be the website for your local public library! Your library likely has a research section with links to databases that are vetted by librarians for accuracy and reliability. These are a good place to start for information. To learn how to evaluate the accuracy of a database, try using the AAOCC acronym: Authority (who is writing?), Accuracy (is the information specific, and can it be verified?), Objectivity (does the author provide multiple points of view or leave room for exploration?), Currency (how recently was this source written), and Coverage (does the information answer your question? does it cover the 5Ws?)

Question:

We're doing a poetry unit in school and I HATE it!! I don't understand poetry, can you help me make sense of this analysis assignment?

Answer:

Yes! I think we need to reframe the idea of poetry for you. Let's talk about what you dislike about it first, so that we can understand it better. If you like music, it might help if we think of poetry like rap or song lyrics. Let's try saying the poem out loud and finding rhythm for it.
