Imagine that you are a study habit expert. Your friends come to you with questions about how to improve their study habits. COLTON: I have trouble remembering information for my tests because I cram the night before. YOU: I think you should try studying ________________. before going to sleep only on Saturdays a little every day right before your test

So, Colton has problems remembering because he crams before the test: he should probably change this habit, and do the "opposite" of cramming: study a little every day.

Actually, studying a little bit every day is shown to give better results that a lot at once, even if the total time is shorter!

What is dramatic irony? when a character says one thing but means another when a character makes fun of another character without them understanding when the audience knows something the characters do not a gentle correction made by playful teasing

Dramatic irony is when the words and actions of the characters of a piece of literature have a different meaning for the audience than they do for the characters. In a comedy, for instance, the dramatic irony might be in the form of a misunderstanding between the characters that creates a comedic situation. See Shakespeare's Comedies for that. There can be 'situational irony' and 'verbal irony' too. The effect is to make the readers or the audience smile .

When writing an essay, the directions say compare Longfellow and Poe's reviews..., does it mean to contrast also? Should I just compare them or should I compare and contrast them?7 POINTS!!!!! Please help!

You should only compare them, which means only write what is similar about them.

Depends on the teacher, but if you contrast it too, they might give you bonus points. However there are also teachers who might give you more points off for not following directions.

QUESTION POSTED AT 09/12/2019 - 04:41 AM

To make sure your reader remembers the point of your essay, which of the following is most important? A. The order in which you present your ideas B. Choosing an interesting subject C. The introduction D. The ending

Well, to be honest, I don't think there is an absolute answer - but i'd go for A. Let's see them one by one:

A. The order in which you present your ideas
-IF your idea is an argument, then it's very important that one thing follows from another- and for this the order is important. If the reader understands your point, then they will remember it well: this is well known: we remember the things we've "understood" better. ,. If they don't- they won't.

B. Choosing an interesting subject - no, i think this is in any case not a good option

C. The introduction - if your reader can choose whether or not to read your work, then this might very well be the decisive point, (they simply won't read it if this part is bad!) but let's assume that they have to read it. then it's not as important as the order.

D. The ending - well, there is also the recency effect: we remember best what came at the end. So if you don't have an argument, but let's say, the claim - this might be more relevant.

In general, I would go for A, but I think it depends on the text
