Question:

What is the difference between summarizing and analyzing a text?

Avery M.
Answer:

When asked to analyze a particular text, students often make the mistake of summarizing the piece. Summarizing refers to picking out the important takeaways from a piece and rephrasing them in a short and quick manner. This provides the reader with a simple synopsis but provides little further analysis. True analyzing will take a concept or idea from a text and expand on it by adding personal insight and knowledge that provides the reader with an explanation that is not stated in the original reading.

Question:

How can I make my note-taking and studying practices more effective?

Avery M.
Answer:

It is important to ask yourself a few essential questions when reflecting on your work habits. Ask yourself: Am I quizzing myself often on the key concepts of the class? Am I not only writing down what is on the powerpoint slide but also what the teacher is saying? Are my notes neat and organized to look back on and comprehend? When working towards a more effective practice, many different habits can be implemented to ensure maximum productivity and I am here to help!
