Here are two study tips from over 1,500 tips submitted by students and teachers
When I study, I play classical music to keep me focused on my work (it really helps). Another thing that promises success is putting the most needed information on flash cards. and reviewing it over and over until i fully remember every piece of the information. Also I would stay away from the TV for about 2 hours so you don't get brainwashed and forget everything.

As a 12 year old who has a heavy passion for music, I listen to it while I do my homework. But, if you choose to do so, you MUST find something calm such as mellow jazz or Brazilian jazz. Don't listen to music that you know will distract you from your focused environment. This can be your time to explore music while you study.

Seat Students at Tables
I seat my students in groups of four or five at tables. This allows students to face each other and interact in positive ways. Students can work together in a cooperative manner. Also, it is easier for me to manage their behavior since I have to monitor several groups rather than twenty-five to thirty students.
In these troubled economic times, a good social studies activity is to have your students develop plans for how they can help their families cut expenses. Have them consider costs such as transportation, food, clothing, entertainment, and other areas of expense. Students will learn about budgeting (tie in to math) and responsibility. Have the students share their plans with the class.
