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.

I always eat a big breakfast before a test that will be given in the morning. If it's in the afternoon I eat a big lunch. This gives me a lot of energy for the test.

Return Work Quickly

Grade and return work to students as quickly as possible. The greater the interval between a student handing in and receiving graded work, the less impact your feedback will have.


Rule Cards

Rule cards can be a very useful study aid for students in any grade. They can be used in any subject. A rule card simply consists of a rule on the front side and one or two examples of the rule on the back.  Students can add examples throughout the school year.  By carrying the rule cards with them, students can gain mastery of the rules through frequent review.
