What should you always include at the end of your introductory paragraph when writing a research paper?
When writing a research paper, one should always be sure to include a strong and structured thesis statement at the end of the introductory paragraph. The introductory paragraph sets the tone for an entire paper, and the thesis statement tells the reader (professor, teacher, etc.) what items the paper will discuss and in what order.

What is the best way to prepare for a multiple choice exam?
The best way to prepare for a multiple choice exam heavily depends on the subject the exam will be on. For example, if the multiple choice exam is going to be on biology, you should prepare for it differently than you would if the multiple choice exam was going to be on a book you read for literature. Example: If preparing for a biology exam, the individual should re-read the sections of their textbook that have been covered, and make notes of anything they do not fully understand that they can either look up the answer to, or ask the teacher to explain the questions they had. (If a textbook ever has a practice quiz or exam, this is a great tool to help prepare). From their the individual should go over all notes, and even re-write notes, if they feel they are not able to recall information from their notes and from there, read the notes out loud to help get the information into their long term memory.
What is an example of foreshadowing?
Foreshadowing is a device writers use to give the reader(s) an idea, or hint, for what's to come later in the story. Often times, it is helpful when you think a writer may be foreshadowing an important event or "thing" to come, to re-read either the paragraph or paragraphs, surrounding the "foreshadowing" so that when you continue reading, you have a more definite idea of what is to come and what details to pay attention to and keep in mind.
