Sometimes the toughest part of higher education is overcoming writer’s block. I know that there were many times I struggled with it in college and it would have been great to have a resource to jolt some inspiration into my writing.
StudyMode provides exactly that. A bit of inspiration to provide students with some ideas for essays and term papers. StudyMode is easily summed up as an encyclopedia that streamlines research and gives writing a jump start. Heard enough??? You can click here to skip right to their site.
In addition to quality essays on every topic under the sun, that can be used for brainstorming and knowledge exchange, StudyMode also provides the following:
Book Notes: provides notes on popular and widely read high school and college books. The summaries offer analysis and the exploration of characters, themes, quotes, and symbols.
AP Notes: The AP Notes provides notes, study guides, sample tests, videos and more to help your student excel on AP Tests that are generally taken in high school.
Citation Tool: This is probably one of the coolest tools on the site. The citation tool makes sure that you are properly citing your referenced works in the correct form. It allows you to choose APA, MLA, and Chicago Style as a reference style. For someone that was ALWAYS marked down for incorrect citation this would have saved me.
