Answer:

In Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games Trilogy, readers encounter a reflection of what a future looks like when members across the social class spectrum refuse to attempt understanding one another, thus resulting in an authoritarian regime with growing hostility between districts that is only encouraged by this system of perpetual intolerance.

Question:

How might you approach the reading sections on a standardized test (particularly if you struggle with reading speed)?

Inactive
Shannon L.
Answer:

Standardized tests are all about preserving time. In order to do that in a reading-based set of questions, look at how the passage is organized. For example, if the passage is organized in multiple lengthy paragraphs, read the full first paragraph and then in proceeding paragraphs, read the first and last sentences. That way, you have an idea of how the passage is organized. Look for key words in the questions given that help indicate which paragraph will guide you to the correct response.

Question:

When referencing source materials in an essay, which titles use italics and which use quotes?

Inactive
Shannon L.
Answer:

While this sometimes varies between academic disciplines, most of the time larger, all-encompassing resources use italics, and smaller parts within those larger resources use quotes. For example, an album title, such as Astoria, would be italicized, whereas a song title, such as "August Burns Red," would be in quotes. Likewise, a TV series, such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, would be italicized, and an individual episode would be in quotes, such as "Hush" or "Once More, With Feeling."
