Answer:

Your thesis statement should be specific and apply to the type of paper you are writing. If it's an argumentative paper your statement would need to justify your claim and provide evidence.

Answer:

If you're comfortable with technology, you might consider an online tool like Quizlet that can help you create online flashcards. This will save lots of time and give you the option to review on the go whenever you have a few minutes. Make sure you set aside some focused time away from distractions. If you need, there are apps for your browser to help you concentrate!

Question:

How would I find peer-reviewed articles on the topic of housing insecurity?

Answer:

This is a very interesting and timely topic! Before we start researching, it might help to talk through what you mean by housing insecurity. For example, are you interested in exploring the issues around rising housing costs or neighborhood safety? Or something else? From there, we can head to Google Scholar to see what sources might be available. Keep in mind that not everything in Google Scholar will be peer reviewed so we'll have to double-check the articles we select fit that criteria. Start by typing in a few keywords. You can start by pulling out the main concept from what you're researching and omit any other words from your possible research question. Once you begin looking at results, you may see links to open the PDFs. That's great! It means you have access to the full text (the abstract, body of the article, data, references, etc). Some results will only show you the citation and abstract. It may take you several searches to find all the info you need and it's okay if you start going in a different direction than you originally intended. Sometimes you'll find something interesting in article and it will spark your curiosity and lead you into different areas of research.
