When dissecting a text, how do you approach that in writing?
There is a straightforward route to approaching a text analytically. The first thing to do is to state one's mini thesis statement on the line or body of work being looked at. The second thing to do is to find a quote that supplements this thesis statement. The third thing to do is to support your thesis with the grounded quote you've pulled from the text itself. This should become the body of the paragraph.

What are some contributing factors to the market crash of 1919?
Racial tensions and presuppositions, the undulating belief that man is "self-made," resurgence of returning troops, and the unstable unit of monetary value.
In what way does the couplet differ from a tercet when utilized in poetry?
The couplet suggests a consistency or stability to the content being detailed--it is rhythmic, controlled, repetitive, giving it a more solidified feel on the page. The tercet, however, illustrates a wildness or uncontrollable element that the poem works to convey. The tercet is less grounded and more volatile than that of the couplet.
