Question:

What can I do to make reading a textbook more interesting?

Joelle Q.
Answer:

Textbooks can certainly be a challenge, however, here are a few helpful tips: 1. Use a highlighter and pen/pencil to mark important information. If you can't write in the textbook, then use colorful sticky notes or check out what note taking features are available electronically. 2. Record key statements, dates, or people on notecards as you're reading in order to create flashcards for studying. 3. Break down your reading assignment into 15-30 minute uninterrupted sessions, or set goals for how many pages you want to read at a time with small rewards. 4. Link the text to something you already know. Connecting what your reading with prior knowledge is a great way to build association and memorizing skills. 5. Get creative and draw out what you read in a chapter. Visual aids are a powerful tool that can support comprehension and retention.

Joelle Q.
Answer:

The first step towards discovering reliable information for any homework or research assignment is to identify whether a source is credible according to the following criteria: 1. Timeliness: How current is the information pertaining to your topic? When was it published? 2. Authoritative: What are the credentials of the publisher and author(s)? Was it peer-reviewed or fact-checked? 3. Accuracy: Compare the source to other sources on the topic. Is it based on strong evidence with reputable citations? 4. Relevance: Does the information relate to the question you are seeking to answer? An easy way to check for relevance is to review the Abstract or Summary if available. 5. Perspective: What is the motive of the publication? Are there any extreme biases that could result in misinformation or data errors?
