Answer:

Figure out what the question is you are trying to address before you begin writing. Come up with some main ideas to support the argument you are wishing to make. Make a chart that shows the supporting details that will help reinforce your claims.

Question:

What are some good strategies to use before reading one of the reading samples in a standardized test all the way through? How can I prepare myself?

Answer:

Look over the questions first and see what to look for before you begin reading. What sorts of details will be necessary to take note of? This will help you to approach the text with some insight before you begin reading. Figure out what some of the main ideas of the text are by looking at the first sentences in each paragraph. What is the writer trying to convey by making those specific themes highlighted by using them as topic sentences for the body of work?

Question:

How can go about learning when to use the correct usage of the words "There", "They're" and "Their"?

Answer:

The easiest way to remember, for me, is by process of elimination. If you are referring to the idea that "They" are doing something or are being described to be some way, then simply know to use "They're". It is very simply a word used to refer to the words "They are". If you can replace the word that sounds like "They're" with "They are", then "They're", is the right one to use. If you are referring to "Their dogs", as in the dogs that belong to them, then use "Their". Lastly, if neither of the above situations applies, then use "There".
