Question:

When should I start studying for a test that's coming up?

Answer:

It depends on a few factors including how much notice you received for the test. In general, you should start studying for an exam at least 48 hours before the test. Cramming may seem like the best option, but it isn't necessarily very effective. However, you need to keep in mind that "studying" can mean a lot of different things to different people. I would say you should be reviewing your notes a day or two after you take them, but more strategic studying should happen when you're really ready to prep for the exam.

Question:

What do I need to include in my thesis statement for an essay?

Answer:

A thesis statement should act as a guide map to your paper. Essentially, it's supposed to establish "the point" of what you're writing. Nothing should be written in your paper if it does not support your thesis. For that reason, your thesis should state your claim and the main reasons you hold that claim. The rest of the essay can then focus on making sure your thesis is correct. There are several different formats that you can use for a thesis. However, in its simplest form, an easy formula for your thesis is: Your claim + because+ your reasons for the claim.

Question:

How could the ubiquity of social media and digital communication impact the development of teens' communication styles?

Answer:

Digital communication is the highest its ever been throughout history and there are clear indications that this is impacting the communication style of younger generations. For starters, there have been entire dialects that result from digital communication with original words (like "lol") and rules for grammar. The over-saturation of digital media has been cited in some studies for shorter attention spans. Some researchers state that this short attention span and need for instant gratification may lead to difficulty in interpersonal relationships because our brains are not getting the same gratification in person. However, there are also some studies to suggest that digitally mediated communication can lead to deeper relationships and conversations. Essentially, individuals are more willing to be authentic because they don't feel the need to "save face' with someone they only know digitally. Because of this, there's reason to suggest that young people will have drastically different relationships and communication habits than any previous generation.
