Study Tips

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

I think you should make some flash cards and study the night you are assigned the work all the way until you take the quiz/test. You should also find a friend in your class and study with them. Eating also helps. Study groups help a lot.

SEE ALL STUDY TIPS

Our brain is much more powerful than we usually think. If anything can change you in your life that will be your brain. Have a book in hand instead of the TV remote after you come back to home from school. Only study can activate and drive your brain over a long journey.

Teaching Tips

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

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.


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.
