"Try not to study on your bed. Color code your notes. During class take good notes while the teacher is talking. Study with a friend. Sometimes I wear headphones and listen to music while studying (not too loud). "

  Student, 8th grade  
  New York, New York  
"I read that we remember things that are meaningful to us. So what I do is to make whatever I have to remember important in my own life. For example, when I studied about electricity, I thought about all of the ways we use it at home."

  Student, 9th grader

"I whisper the words as I study my textbook. This way I both see the words and hear them. This helps my understanding. I've found that whispering works better for me than talking the words out loud."
  Richard Bolling  
  Student, 9th grader  
  Frankfort, Kentucky  
"One study tip is to take recordings of your classes. Ask your teacher if you can take recordings on your phone or another device. After you take recordings of all important classes that day, take them home and listen to them in bed or during dinner or someplace where you can listen to it without being distracted."
  Michael  Olson  
  Student, 6th Grade  
  Bradenton, Florida  
"Your students will be more engaged in their work if they feel they can complete it successfully. Also, if they can measure their progress."

"When I sit to study and some answers are very difficult to learn, then I sing a song in tune. I put the answer into a familiar song such as the Happy Birthday song, or a song from a movie I like. Then I sing the song with the question and answer several times until I can sing it by heart. Then I can sing that song when the question comes up again. "
