In-text citations should immediately follow a quote or paraphrase and contain the following information (author's last name, page number, year). References should be as following, with any titles in italics or quotes, depending on the source type. Author's name. "Title of the article". Title of the book/magazine, contributors, version/edition, publisher, date, location.

List four evidence-based ways to do well on tests or exams.
1. Take practice tests to familiarize yourself with the information, content, and organization. Create a mock test to get comfortable with the exam timing, setting, and environment. 2. Explain concepts to yourself. Speaking out loud to yourself or a peer helps you identify areas that still need clarification. Speaking aloud also increases retention. 3. Come up with mnemonics. If the material can be memorized in a unique way that will help you recall information, come up with a play on words that will aid you. 4. Annotate your text and notes. Reviewing your notes, text, and materials is helpful but is even more efficient when you go back and identify key concepts and main ideas to maximize your comprehension.
Demonstrate where the following words break into syllable chunks and identify whether each first chunk contains open or closed vowels. 1. maple 2. mapple
In the word maple, the word breaks into two syllable chunks as follows: ma/ple. In the first syllable, the vowel /a/ is an open vowel as it falls on the outer end of the syllable, meaning that we pronounce the sound as [eɪ]. In the word mapple, we break the word into syllables in between the double letters, as follows: map/ple. Since the vowel /a/ is enclosed by two consonants, it is considered a closed vowel. We pronounce this vowel sound as [æ].
