Question:

When writing an academic paper, is it best to write your thesis statement when you're just beginning your project, or at the end?

Juliann S.
Answer:

Trick question. You'll most likely do both. It's good practice to develop a "working" thesis statement, but understand as you research, develop, and begin writing your topic and your thesis will most likely evolve and need updating.

Question:

When doing research, how can you efficiently narrow your results to resources that are applicable to your topic?

Juliann S.
Answer:

Use Boolean Operators: AND, OR, and NOT. example: "international adoption" AND psychology NOT "foster care" By doing a search such as this, your results will only include materials that use the terms international adoption and psychology, and any results that discuss foster care will not be included.

Question:

What were the reasons for American westward expansion?

Juliann S.
Answer:

Although not limited to these, the desire for work, the desire for land, and the desire for gold or silver were major factors in the American westward expansion. With growing towns, there was a need for just about any position. Doctors, teachers, farmers, railroad workers, etc. However, there was also the opportunity to try and strike gold and get rich. For many it was the opportunity for a new start and an opportunity to have their own land.
