Study Tips

Here are two study tips from over 1,500 tips submitted by students and teachers

Keep your work and papers for each subject in its own folder. Every day throw away stuff no longer needed. This way each folder is up to date and ready to use.

SEE ALL STUDY TIPS

If you ever find you are blank after reading something, go back and figure out where you were doing well and look for a word right after that you don't quite know or understand completely and look it up. Make examples and "GET THE MEANING" as it was intended. You will clear any confusion, become interested again and move along easily.

Teaching Tips

Here are two teachings tips from our collection of over 250 practical tips

Mass Nouns

Point out that most nouns can be counted such as three books, four nickles. Contrast these with mass nouns that can not be counted, such as bread, rice. Have your students identify which of the following nouns are mass nouns: mail, zebra, room, gold, grass, school, sugar, town, robin, peanut butter, air, package, card , clothing. (mail, gold, grass, sugar, peanut butter, air, clothing).


Delayed Feedback

Here is something that happens to all teachers. You prepare and teach a wonderful lesson, but when the bell rings, the students leave without saying a word about how good it was. You cannot rely on instant gratification. Instead, keep in mind that some things you do in class will influence students for years to come.
