Your teacher is the best person to give you specific study tips for his/her class. The teacher knows your progress in that class and can be the most effective person in advising you how to improve a grade or be a more effective learner.
Students can go to the library for extra help with assignments. Go to the library with specific questions or a draft to revise after school Monday through Thursday from 3-4 p.m.
Learn to love formative assessments! We use them a lot here. These are like mini-assessments during a unit that help you (and your teacher!) take a “temperature check” of your learning and understanding so far. These are a great way to see if you’ve already mastered the learning or need some extra help.
Be aware of your best time of day. Many people learn best in daylight hours. Think about if this is true for you. If it is, schedule time to study during the day. If not, find out what is best.
Use your waiting time effectively. Ten minutes waiting on a bus or 15 minutes waiting for practice can add up. Also, in between school and extracurricular activities, use this time to your advantage.
