The only types of writing that matter in school are: A. Essay writing B. Writing Reports C. Research Writing D. None of the above
The answer is D, because ALL writing matters. Whether you have a 24-page essay or you have to write a short description of a photo you took, it all matters. Choosing the right words for each situation is extremely important, as the difference between saying "I'm going to my house" and "I'm going home" hold two completely different meanings, even though it seems like you're saying the same thing. Words have meaning beyond what the Dictionary says, and learning to use writing within ANY context is arguably the most important kid of writing there is!
Subject: Study Skills
True or false? When taking study notes, you should always hand write them instead of typing them.
Neither true nor false, it always depends on the student! While some studies show that physically writing notes can improve memory, I don't ever like to put a label on a person until I can see what works best for them. I personally love using different color-coded pens to take notes, but I will never insist that someone follow my methods, and instead I like to help develop something unique that works for the individual.
In the English language, there is a term for a word that is spelled the exact same if you read it forwards or backwards, such as "Anna" or "Mom". What is the term for these kinds of words?
These words are known as Palindromes! They're a lot of fun to use in creative settings, but they can also be used in Marketing to create clever logos, brands, and even catch phrases. I love the quirky traits of the English language and I always like to make learning fun, so I often begin with little things like Palindromes to help keep students interested and on their toes.
