Question:

How can I stop procrastinating when I need to study for a test?

Inactive

Answer:

It may be helpful to schedule short weekly study blocks earlier in the semester so that you don't have to pull an all-nighter right before the test. During these times, put your electronic device on airplane mode, store it in a hard-to-reach place, or lock your phone in the library's charging station to avoid distraction.

Question:

How can I tell if an article is scholarly and peer-reviewed?

Inactive

Answer:

Scholarly, peer-reviewed articles contain original research that explores very specific topics. These articles are written for academic experts in a particular field, so they may contain terms that the general reader won't understand. Authors are often from universities or research institutions. The articles are lengthy (10-30+ pages) and contain sections such as abstracts, introductions, methodologies, and research results. They have large bibliographies. Don't be intimidated by these sources! Skim the information for key points in the abstract, introduction, and conclusion.

Answer:

Southern Appalachian culture has been affected by migration patterns. European immigrants (many Scots-Irish and German) settled in the area beginning in the early 1700s, though the area was already inhabited by the Cherokee and other native tribes. In the 1900s, many people migrated away from the region to find work opportunities in Washington State's logging industries or Ohio's automotive factories.
