Time isn't always on your side! Reading English is often OK if you’ve got plenty of time to do it, but in a reading exam, it can seem as if time isn’t on your side! Watch this video to see our six top tips to help you with your reading exam - then afterwards test your understanding in our quiz. [Images: Getty Images] For more, visit our website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-13/session-1 Transcript Rob Reading English is often OK if you’ve got plenty of time to do it, but in a reading exam, it can seem as if time isn’t on your side! Here's examiner Mark Shea… Mark Shea, Examiner The way most reading exams work is that you have a lot of reading to do and very little time to do it. Time is more important perhaps in reading than in any other paper. Rob So there's no time to waste in a reading exam but hopefully our top tips will not make your next exam feel like a sprint! The first thing to do is to familiarise yourself with the structure of the exam. Remember to do plenty of reading practice tests – preferably in timed conditions. And get feedback either from your teacher or by checking your answers with answer keys where possible. When you do the real exam, begin by reading the instructions carefully so you know exactly what you're required to do. One suggestion is to start with the reading section that you found easiest in the practice test - then you'll have time to focus on the sections you find most difficult. Other people suggest the opposite. You choose which way works for you. Just don't spend too much time on any one section – the clock is ticking! This is how one student approaches a reading exam… Student When the paper come, I read first the questions. I try to read the whole thing and try to construct how I answer those questions. Rob So it’s a good idea to read the questions before you read the texts, so you know what to look for. You could skim to find the main idea of a section of text or scan to find specific details such as key words, details, phrases or synonyms from the questions. Attempt to answer all the questions as long as there is no penalty for an incorrect answer. And make sure you leave some time at the end to check your answers. Good luck!

This lesson comes from a request by Aditya from Maharashtra, India. Aditya says he is preparing for a competitive exam and he has to do reading comprehension exercises as part of the exam, and he wants to know the best way to do these. Before we start, if you want to request a lesson, just leave a comment. In your comment, tell me your name, and I will mention you in the video. OK, in this lesson I will give you some important tips and strategies for reading comprehension exercises. I will give you a reading plan that you can follow, and there are exercises in this lesson for you to practice. Alright, now my teaching experience is mostly with exams like the IELTS and TOEFL, but the tips that I give you in this lesson will help you in any exam situation. So the first thing is: when it comes to reading in an exam, budget your time. That means: you should know how many reading passages there are in the exam, how many exercises there are and how much time you have. In the IELTS exam, for example, there are three reading passages and you have one hour to do all of them. So then divide your time amongst those passages – for IELTS, you might spend roughly 20 minutes per passage. In some exams, one passage might be shorter or easier, and another passage might be longer or more difficult. In that case, obviously, you should plan to spend less time on the short passage, and more time on the long passage. And you should time yourself – if you are allowed to wear a watch in your exam, look at your watch and keep track of the time. If you plan for 20 minutes per passage, stick to that plan. Now, if you’re not allowed to wear a watch, then use the clock in the room or hall, or ask the invigilators how much time you have left. Alright, that’s the first thing: budgeting your time. So now the exam starts – and you have the first reading passage in front of you – what do you do? Well, I’ll tell you what you should NOT do – don’t start at the beginning and read slowly to the finish. Many students do this – and the problem is that when you get to the end, you will have forgotten a lot of the details in the middle, and when you read the questions, you have to go back and read the passage again to find the answers. Instead, here’s the plan that you should follow: your first step in reading should be to skim the passage. What does that mean? Well, skimming is actually something that we do with milk. It’s when you heat or boil milk, and the fat rises to the top in the form of cream. Removing that layer of fat is called skimming. When it comes to reading, skimming means to read the surface of the text quickly to understand the overall message. So if there’s a heading or title to the passage, and if there are subheadings, read all of these first. They will tell you the subject of the text. Then read the first sentence of each paragraph – they will give you a good idea of the overall message. Let’s practice this. You see two paragraphs on the screen, but only the first sentence in each paragraph is visible. Stop the video, read the sentences and try to understand the main topic in each paragraph. Alright, so what do you think the topic of the whole passage might be? It could be the negative effects of social media on children. What about the first paragraph? What is it about? Well it says that using social media can affect a child’s writing skills. And the second paragraph? It says that some people don’t agree with this – that is, the first paragraph – for two reasons: scientific reasons and practical reasons (pragmatic).

Exam Skills: 4 tips for listening exams
 
02:42
As with other exams, preparation is important. One of the best ways to prepare yourself for a listening exam is to listen to as much spoken English as possible, as often as you can. Watch this video to find out four top tips to help you prepare for your listening exam. Then visit our website and test your understanding in our quiz: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-16/session-1 Transcript Rob For all exams, preparation is important. And one of the best ways to prepare yourself for a listening exam is to listen to as much spoken English as possible, as often as you can. That's what this student does… Student I think that one of the best things is watching TV because even if you don’t understand it, you can understand it from the picture, but your listening skills are improved. But even better, I think, it’s radio, listening to the radio, because you have to concentrate only on sounds, not on the picture. Rob So TV or radio are great places to listen to authentic English. Don’t forget that you can also practise your listening skills by watching movies and listening to music. If you listen to something that you find interesting, you are more likely to enjoy the experience and as a result improve your listening. Also, get hold of some practice tests on CD or as mp3 files and listen to them often. As well as giving you further practice in listening, these tests allow you to become familiar with the format of the exam and let you know how many times you’ll hear the listening text in the real test. There’s no need to be in a quiet room to do the practice tests. In fact, it’s often better if you’re not – this forces you to focus on the key speakers, with background noise and distractors going on. Language teacher Margaret John says this will help… Language teacher, Margaret John Some examinations deliberately put distractors, such as noisy environments like Tube stations and bus stations and airports, behind the speakers. If you’ve been practising listening that way, you will be in a much better position in exam conditions to be able to handle this problem. Rob When you're finally in the real exam, make sure you can hear properly. If you have a problem, tell the examiner right at the beginning - after the exam is too late! These tips will hopefully get you going in your listening exam. Good luck!

Exam Skills: 5 tips to help you with speaking exams
 
02:54
Speaking exams can fill some students with dread. But don't feel stressed; we have some top tips to help you. Watch this video to see our five top tips to help you with your speaking exam - then visit our website and test your understanding in our quiz. http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-14/session-1 [Images: Getty Images] Transcript Rob Speaking exams can fill some students with dread. But don't feel stressed; we have some top tips to help you. Firstly, you need to be prepared so make sure you practise speaking as much as possible a long time before the exam day. Check how to pronounce words, learn some phrases and find out what the examiner is looking for. When the real exam arrives, examiner, Mark Shea, has some good words of advice… Mark Shea, Examiner You need to remember that the examiner is not your enemy. It’s the examiner’s responsibility, in an oral exam, to provide opportunities for the examinees to display their language proficiency, how good they are at speaking. So the examiner will help you. Rob So our second top tip to help you with your speaking exam is to remind you that the examiner is there to help you! They know you're nervous. But it's also good to give yourself the best possible chance as well. Don't speak too fast – slow down – take a deep breath and speak clearly. And don't forget to listen to the questions and if you're unclear, ask the examiner for clarification. But to do this effectively, and to show the examiner how good your speaking skills are, make sure that you comfortably and accurately use clarification phrases such as “can repeat/rephrase that please?” or “I didn’t quite catch that, could you repeat or say that a different way please?” Sometimes speaking exams are done in pairs or groups – but don't let that worry you – be friendly to the other candidate and maybe even help them with their speaking. Language expert, Karen Adams can explain why… Karen Adams, Language expert This is because it’s important to interact and show the examiner that you can’t just speak, but you can actually converse with someone else. Part of your marks will be devoted to the interaction between you and your partner, so remember to react to what your partner says and to ask questions if it’s appropriate. Rob So remember in speaking exams, the emphasis is often on co-operation rather than competition. If you're confident and friendly you'll do well. Good luck!

Exam skills: 6 tips about using study groups
 
02:41
We know that studying for an exam takes lots of effort – but being part of a study group means you can share your learning and not feel isolated. Watch this video to find out six top tips to help you get the most out of study groups. Then test your understanding in our quiz here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-27/session-1 [Images: Getty Images] Transcript We know that studying for an exam takes lots of effort – but being part of a study group means you can share your learning and not feel isolated. Here are our top tips for getting the most out of a study group… Obviously the first thing you need to do is find a study group to join. These might already take place in college, but if you're studying alone you may have to search for one via noticeboards or online. The most important thing is to get one that's at the right level for you. You could test out some groups before you commit to one fully. Find one where you feel comfortable to discuss your ideas, and where feel it is properly run. A great thing about a study group is that you can learn from other students. You can ask questions and get a different perspective about a subject from your own. It can help you fill gaps in your knowledge too. But to do this you need to open your mind to other viewpoints and respect other opinions. Listen as well as speak! It might seem obvious, but make sure everyone in the group communicates in English. This way, it'll help you improve your understanding of the language and highlight areas that need practice. But don't worry about making mistakes, that's all part of it. Study groups should take place regularly, but each time before you begin, you need to prepare. Agree with the rest of your group about the subjects or issues you want to discuss and materials you might need to use in the session. This will save time deciding on these things when you meet. When your study group session begins, don't waste time chatting, stick to your goals - you will only have a set amount of time, so stay focussed and perhaps get someone to manage the session to keep you on track. Finally, the benefit of a study group is learning together so make sure you and everyone else participates; don't be shy and speak up. This communal experience should be fun as well as educational - so enjoy it, make friends and see how together, your English improves. Good luck!

Exam Skills: 6 tips for improving your grammar
 
02:53
Good grammar makes good English We all know that grammar is important - it helps you make sentences and this helps you to communicate your ideas. In order to improve your English you must improve your grammar. But how can you best do that? Watch this video to find out six top tips to help you improve your grammar. Then test your understanding in our quiz. Find out more here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-20/session-1 Transcript Rob We all know that grammar is important - it helps you make sentences and this helps you to communicate your ideas. In order to improve your English you must improve your grammar. But how can you best do that? Out top tips are here to help. One approach is to learn grammar in the traditional way by studying the language in class or using grammar books or online grammar resources. In this way you break grammar down into small areas, studying rules carefully, practising them by completing grammar exercises, and finally using the new rules when communicating in English. For some, this method is good for completing grammar tests, but not so good for improving their language when speaking or writing. So another approach is to use the language as frequently as possible. Surround yourself with English speakers – listen to them speak and then join in. Sometimes you will find that you don't know how to say something. This gap in your knowledge gives you the perfect opportunity to identify new grammar you need to learn. You can then either ask someone for help or research it. Once you find out the new way of saying something, make sure you practise as much as possible – otherwise, you will forget. This teacher agrees… Teacher My point of view is that first you have to learn as much as you can on grammar, and then you focus in other skills to brush up on your language. Practising all the time is the best way to succeed! Rob Some people learn grammar by reading and listening to something that they find interesting. But they don’t just listen and read for information, they look carefully at how sentences are structured. This helps them see new grammar rules that they can use themselves when speaking or writing in English. Keep studying the basic blocks of grammar – be confident with the parts of speech and build on them and pay particular attention to tenses. Get your grammar right and you'll be well on your way to using the English language successfully. Good luck!

Exam skills: 6 tips to help you with writing exams
 
02:26
Your writing is one of the aspects of the English language you'll be tested on – so as the exam approaches make sure you know what to do. Watch this video to find out six top tips to help you in your writing exam. Then visit our website and test your understanding in our quiz: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-15/session-1 Transcript Rob Your writing is one of the aspects of the English language you'll be tested on – so as the exam approaches make sure you know what to do. Listen to our top tips to help you on your way! Well before the exam day, familiarise yourself with the structure of the writing test – do plenty of practice tests, preferably in timed conditions. This will help you look at the timing and the type of writing you're expected to produce. But don't just do them – get feedback on your writing and act on it so that you learn from it. Try to rewrite your work based on this feedback. Once you're in the real exam, keep calm! This is examiner, Mark Shea's advice… Mark Shea, Examiner Doing an exam successfully is to a large extent a question of good time management. If you’ve done practice exams before, you should have a good idea of how long each part should take you, and when you have to hurry. Rob So manage your time – know how long you have for each question. Now, read each question carefully - paying particular attention to instruction verbs such as discuss, examine, compare, contrast. Next, make a plan before you start writing – you could possibly write down all your ideas and arguments and plan how to use these in your writing. Now it's time to start writing – as you write, don't forget to keep the appropriate structure in mind and when you've finished, make sure you read what you've written and correct any mistakes you've made – and that you've actually answered the question! Remember the feedback you received for your practice papers and make sure you've acted on this in the real exam. Follow these tips and hopefully everything will go smoothly. Good luck!

Exam skills: 5 tips about taking notes

If you're studying English in a classroom you're going to have to make notes. They're useful ways of helping you to remember things and review what you've learnt – so it's important to do it right. Watch this video to find out five top tips to help you with your note taking. Then test your understanding in our quiz here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-25/session-1 [Images: Getty Images] Transcript If you're studying English in a classroom you're going to have to make notes. They're useful ways of helping you to remember things and review what you've learnt – so it's important to do it right. Here's our top tips about taking notes. Start making notes for every lecture on a new page and date and number each page too. That way it's easier to look back at them later and find what you want. There's a lot to remember in a lesson so note taking is crucial but don't write everything down. Write down the important bits – your teacher may suggest parts of the lesson that need noting – but don't rely on this. And write down things in your own words – unless it's a direct quote, then be accurate. Make sure you understand what you have written and that you're making notes of the important bits. Use words, abbreviations, symbols or even pictures to summarise what your teacher says. If you miss something, leave a gap in your notes, and get the information from them later. After the lesson, use your notes. Remember to read through them after the lecture. You could also rewrite or expand them too. And discuss them with another student. This will help you remember the content better. Note taking is an important and useful way to help you remember and revise what you've learnt. Getting this right will make your learning journey easier. Good luck!

IELTS – 3 Reading Strategies
 
16:51
Is the IELTS Reading section very challenging for you? Can't finish all the readings and questions before the time is up? In this lesson, you will learn three approaches to the IELTS Reading section and their pros and cons. The goal of this lesson is to help you finish the test on time without compromising your understanding of the readings. Learn how to read less while answering more questions correctly. After watching, make sure to do the quiz to test your understanding. Good luck on your test! https://www.engvid.com/ielts-3-reading-strategies/ https://www.GoodLuckIELTS.com/ https://www.writetotop.com/ WATCH NEXT IELTS Writing: The 3 Essay Types https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ-Vyqxn1To TRANSCRIPT Hi again. Welcome back to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson is about IELTS. As usual, with IELTS lessons, I will be speaking a little bit faster than normal. It's good for your listening practice. But if you're not taking the IELTS, you can still listen and try to follow us as we go through this section. So, let's begin. Today, I'm going to look at the IELTS reading section. I'm going to look at three different approaches to tackling the IELTS reading section. Students always ask me: "What should I do with the reading? How do I do it? How can I finish on time? How can I answer more questions?" Right? So I'm going to give you three approaches, three different ways to try to do the IELTS. Okay? We're going to look at three different ways. They're completely different from each other. The most important thing I want to tell you before we start: you have to know what works for you. Okay? One of these approaches will work for you; the others may not. Practice all three. If you're comfortable with one and it seems to work for you, and your score seems to be getting better, stick with that one and practice that one. Don't try to do all three each time. Figure out which one works, and just practice that one the most. Okay? The most obvious one and the first one we're going to talk about: read the entire passage, and then tackle the questions. Now, a few things to say, good and bad, about this approach. So, you have 20 minutes, let's say, that you're going to start from the first passage, you're going to do about 17 minutes; the second passage, you're going to spend 20 minutes; the last passage, you're going to spend 23, 24, 25 minutes. So, you have to do this very fast. So: can you read the entire passage and do the questions in that timeframe? Okay? That's the question you must ask yourself. Are you a fast reader? Can you comprehend everything you're reading? How is your vocabulary? Things like this. Some people, they must read everything, from beginning to end, and then go to the questions. But they can also keep; they can retain the information they've read, so when they go to the questions, they know where to go back and look for the answers. Now, the good part about this is that you have all the information in your head once you've read the entire passage. The bad part is that you're going to be reading the passage twice. Okay? Or not the whole passage, but you're going to read big chunks of the passage twice. You'll have read it the first time, you'll go to the questions, and then you'll be reading again to find the answers, because you're looking for specific words now. When you get to the questions, sometimes it's only one word difference from what you read in the passage. So, do I recommend this? Yes and no. If you're a fast reader and you can comprehend, then yes, do that. If you're not a fast reader, then no, don't do this. You'll be wasting too much time and reading more than you need to. What I'm going to do with these two approaches is show you how to read less. So you don't need to read the entire passage; you just need to read the areas that contain the answers to the questions. So, the second approach: go straight to the questions. You look at the question. First of all, understand the type of the question. Is it a multiple choice? Is it a fill-in-the-blank, like a summary? Are you looking for like headings for each paragraph? Are you looking for the title? Etc. Figure out what you're looking for, read the question carefully, pick out the keywords in the question or the key idea in the question, and then scan the passage. Don't read the passage. Just quickly look everywhere for where that information ought to be.

IELTS Listening - Top 14 tips!
 
14:38
http://www.engvid.com/ Improve your IELTS score with these quick tips! In this lesson, you will learn about the Listening module of the IELTS exam. I will teach you the most common mistakes people make and how to avoid them. Watch this free video, so that you know how to practice for the IELTS Listening test. I want you to be prepared and confident on your test day, so that you can get the best results on your IELTS! http://www.engvid.com/ielts-listening-top-10-tips/ TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's lesson, I am going to teach you my top tips for the IELTS listening module. Okay? So, before I teach you these tips, you might be wondering: "What's the IELTS listening module?" Well, the IELTS is a test and one part of the test is listening. So, in the listening section, you're going to have 40 questions where you're going to listen to some conversations for about 30 minutes, and then you'll have 10 minutes to transfer your answers over to another sheet. So, in total, it's 40 minutes; 30 minutes for listening, 10 minutes for writing down your answers. Okay, now this part of the IELTS is very possible to get a high mark, especially if you follow my tips. All right? Now, before we get started, I just want to let you know: I know you can do the IELTS. I know you can pass, I know you can get a great mark, a great bandwidth - you just have to have confidence in yourself and you have to practice. Practice, practice, practice; it really pays off. So let's get started. So, my first tip: write no more than three words. What do I mean by this? I don't mean for the whole thing, write no more than three words. On the IELTS, you will have to read the instruction of what to do. Often times, the instruction, before you listen, you're going to see: "Write no more than three words." This is an example of an instruction you must follow. One mistake a lot of students make during the IELTS is they don't read instructions properly. They're nervous, they're stressed out, they write whatever, they don't... They don't follow the instructions. If you see something like: "Write no more than three words." Do that. You can't write four, don't write five. Write three or less. Okay? So my main point here: follow the instructions carefully. Point number two: get used to British English. A large part of the IELTS, you will be listening... For... For... Sorry, for the listening, you will be listening to British accents. Sometimes you might hear Australian accents or Canadian, you might hear a range, but a lot of the accents will be British. So it's very important to get used to listening to British accents. And also, listen to other accents like Canadian, Australian; that's a good idea too. Where can you find British accents to listen to? I recommend the BBC. They have a lot of great videos there and most of it's with British accents, so it's a very good idea so you can practice listening. The more you practice listening with British accents, the easier it will be to understand British speakers. Especially if you're used to American English, this is a very good thing to do. Related to this point: British vocab. You should learn British vocabulary. For example: in American English and Canadian English, we say: "truck". In British English, we say: "lorry". So it's good to know some of these British expressions, some British words. One idea where you can practice these is if you check out our website: www.engvid.com, we have a new teacher who is British and who will be talking about British English, so check out her... Her videos. It will also be good to help you with practicing listening to British accents. Number four: spelling counts. Okay? Very important. The listening part of the IELTS is not just listening; you're actually using other skills like writing and reading. Now, with writing, when you write down your answers, you sometimes have to spell something out, so you have to be very, very careful with spelling. Okay? This is something you should really study and practice before you take the listening part of the IELTS. Practice your spelling. Learn spelling rules. We have a lot of different videos on how to spell on engVid, so I would come and check those ones out. Number five - this is the thing that always gets my students and I always warn them about when we practice - plural versus singular. Okay? You have to listen carefully on whether you're writing down the plural with an "s" or the singular. If the question wants me to write down: "cat", someone's talking about their cat and I write down: "cats", it's incorrect. I would get an "X". Okay, so it's important to be careful, to really listen: is it a singular thing, is it a plural thing? Are they saying "store" or "stores"? Okay?

Exam skills: 6 more tips to help with your listening exams

Focussed listening Listening exams don't need to be scary! Be prepared and together with some of our top tips, you can improve your performance when the exam day comes. Watch this video to find out six top tips to help you in your listening exam. Then visit our website and test your understanding in our quiz: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-17/session-1 Transcript Rob Listening exams don't need to be scary! Be prepared and together with some of our top tips, you can improve your performance when the exam day comes. You might be worried about not hearing something the first time – examiner, Mark Shea, has out first tip… Mark Shea, Examiner Make sure you’re familiar with the structure of the exam. Sometimes you’ll hear things one time only; sometimes you might hear things twice. Rob So find out before the exam how many times you’ll hear the text. It will affect the way you listen. Next, read the question carefully before the listening audio begins. Know what you’re listening for. Are you looking for specific details? Or more general points? If you miss something during the exam, don’t panic, just keep going and try to focus on the rest of the exam. Listen to the advice this student gives… Student Well, when you didn’t catch the answer and you have to leave a gap because you didn’t understand it, then try not to care about it and try to forget the mistakes and go straight to other things. Rob Next, how do you focus your listening? Language teacher, Margaret John, has an idea… Margaret John, Language Teacher Keep your finger on the question. Don’t be distracted by all that other language going around. So keep your eyes on the question. When you’ve heard the answer to that question, move straight to the next question, and put your finger on it, and pay attention to that and that alone. Rob So carry on, don't get distracted – put your finger on the question and listen only for the answer to that question. If you have the chance to hear things twice, try and form an opinion the first time you listen, and then the second time you listen you should be confirming that your guess was right the first time. Make sure that you do listen the second time, and don’t just think that you’ve got the answer right the first time round. Finally, if there's time at the end, check your answers and see if they make sense. Good luck!

How to Study Effectively for School or College - Top 6 Science-Based Study Skills
 
08:28
How to study effectively with 6 essential skills. Boost your study performance with strategies recommended by science - The ANSWER Method. These tips are for high school or university students preparing for exams or wanting to learn more effectively. For free downloadable posters about these six strategies for effective learning, click this link - https://www.dropbox.com/s/sofzb2m3sqzwvlv/6%20Strategies%20for%20Effective%20Learning.pdf?dl=1 This video is a collaboration between The Learning Scientists (http://www.learningscientists.org/) and Memorize Academy (https://www.memorize.academy). EXAMPLES of specific Elaboration questions from MATH You're studying calculus. The topic is “derivatives”. How do derivatives work? Well, they are the rate of the change. How does that work? You take a look at one point, then you take a look at a prior point, over some interval. And then you take the difference divided by the interval. As that interval approaches zero, you have the instantaneous rate of change. Why does this happen? Because “instantaneous” means that the interval is nothing. SCIENCE Imagine you are studying neural communication, maybe in a biology, neuroscience, or psychology class. How does neural communication work? If we look at one neuron, the dendrites receive messages from many other neurons, and then the messages converge in the soma. If there is enough of a positive charge within the soma, then an action potential will occur, and an electrical signal goes down the axon. When the signal reaches the terminal buttons, neurotransmitters release into the synapse where they communicate with the dendrites of the next neuron. Why does this happen? The neurotransmitters are chemicals that allow neurons to communicate with one another. The pattern of activation among different neurons (which neurons fire, how quickly, what neurotransmitters they release) determines the message in your brain. You might then ask, how does the axon work? The axon is a long tail-like structure that produces the electrical signal. How does the signal travel? The axon is covered in myelin sheath, a fatty substance that insulates the axon. The myelin sheath works like the rubber around the cord of an electrical appliance, and it serves to make the electricity travel faster. Why have myelin sheath? Because we need our neurons to be able to send signals fast, since we need to be able to react, make decisions, move quickly, perceive feeling in our skin instantly, etc. Make sure to compare ideas to learn how they are similar and different. For example, an axon and terminal buttons are both parts of a neuron; but, the axon sends an electrical signal while the terminal buttons release chemicals. Both Schizophrenia and Parkinson’s disease are related to the neurotransmitter dopamine, but Schizophrenia is the result of too much dopamine while Parkinson’s disease is the result of too little dopamine. Also, try to make connections to your own memories or experiences, and compare ideas to learn how they are similar and different. We already made the connection from myelin sheath on axons to the rubber on cords to electrical appliances. Here is another example: a family member or close friend who suffers from Schizophrenia disease is suffering from too much dopamine. This means that too much dopamine is being released, by the terminal buttons, into the synapse. A doctor could give them a drug to reduce the dopamine in their brain, called a dopamine antagonist. If too much of this drug is used, the patient might begin developing symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease. How would a dopamine antagonist work? … continue asking yourself elaborative questions! HISTORY Imagine you’re studying World War II, and the attack on Pearl Harbor. You could ask yourself, how did this attack happen? On December 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy attacked the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor. The attack included Japanese fighter planes, bombers, and torpedo planes. Why did this happen? The Japanese intended to destroy the United States’ Pacific Fleet so that it could not interfere with Japanese operations. Here you could also ask another type of question: What was the result of this historic event? Well, Japanese casualties were light, while they damaged eight U.S. Navy battleships. The Arizona was among those that the Japanese sunk, and was not raised from the shallow water. U.S. aircrafts were also destroyed, and 2,403 Americans were killed (1,178 were injured). Why is this event important? The day after the attack, Roosevelt delivered his Infamy Speech, the United States declared war on Japan, and Japanese-Americans were then relocated to internment camps. You could then go on: how did the U.S. enter the war? How did the Pearl Harbor attack lead up to the release of the atomic bomb? How did the war end? And so on. There are so many ways to explain the idea and add details!
