Study Tips

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

I'm not sure why, but if I review some important information just before I go to sleep, I remember it in the morning. What I do is sit in bed for a few minutes before getting up and think about what I was trying to remember. I think it has something to do with the brain processing and storing the information.

End-of-Class Review Time

Try to leave a few minutes at the end of class for students to review their written notes and ask questions. During this time, students can also compare their notes with those of other students. This will help ensure that students have an accurate set of notes.


Hold on to Thank You Notes

Maintain a folder in which to keep anything that is complimentary from your students and their parents. As you know, there will be times when you wonder if what you are doing is worthwhile. It will help to go through the compliments whenever you have this feeling.
