How should I structure my essay?
Essays typically follow a structure of an introduction, a number of body paragraphs, and then a conclusion. We can think of our essay as a delicious, three-course meal. Your introduction is the appetizer, providing a preview of your meal and getting the reader excited for what is to come. Your intro should present ideas of what ingredients you included in your meal and the flavors heading their way. Your body paragraphs are the meat and potatoes, the main dish of the meal. This is where you fill your audience up with your research, analysis, and quotes to back all of it up. It is the bulk of your essay and allows you to share the hard work you've done. Your conclusion is the dessert, providing a sweet finish to the meal in which you review the information you covered and offer the reading a powerful ending to think about long after they've left the table.
What's the deal with colors in novels? Why should we pay attention to them?
Color is present in almost every aspect of our lives, and throughout time, colors have become associated with themes. These colorful themes have been used from the times of ancient civilizations to icons for the apps on your phone. Red brings up love and passion, blue represents calmness, purple projects a feeling of royalty, and green is often associated with health and nature. Authors are very familiar with the themes and will utilize colors in their novels to reveal sometimes hidden meanings or characteristics of an event, a character, or a location. Being able to recognize these will allow you to better understand an author's work, as well as be a more informed viewer of marketing and messages in your everyday life!
Why do we need to pay attention to nonverbal communication?
Nonverbal communication is just as, if not more, effective as verbal communication when it comes to delivering messages. We cannot NOT communicate nonverbally. The behaviors in our body language, facial expressions, and gestures will tell so much. And if our nonverbal communication contradicts our verbal communication, others are more likely to believe how we say things, rather than what we're actually saying (i.e. saying "I'm so excited!" while frowning and slouched over, other people will find it hard to believe you are excited).
