Study Tips

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

I finally accepted that I have to work harder for an A then a lot of other students do. Once I did that, working harder and longer didn't bother me anymore. It was worth it to get a lot of A's. Actually, I now don't have to work as hard to get A's. I think it's because I became more confident.

SEE ALL STUDY TIPS

When you have a big test coming up, or even a small quiz, always take all study tools (such as study guides, review sheets, homework,etc.) and rewrite them as many times as you can. When you do this, also make pictures for each thing. Doing this helps you remember things and helps you do good on a test.

Teaching Tips

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

Response Time

Give students adequate time to respond to questions you ask during a lecture or a discussion. Allowing sufficient time enables students to think a question through before responding. The period of silence between your question and a student response is actually a positive.


Having Materials Ready

Be proactive by placing all materials and supplies students need to do their work in bins that are easily accessible to them. Lessons can be disrupted if you have to continually stop to provide one or more students with the supplies and materials they need for the lesson or assignment.
