Study Tips

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

Listen to what your teacher says in class, not to students who are talking when they shouldn't. What they say won't be on the test. But listen to the other students if the teacher wants the class to talk about what you are learning.

SEE ALL STUDY TIPS

When you're about to take a test make sure you relax, take a deep breath, and remind yourself it is just a test and you have been doing it all year or month. All a test is a homework sheet with all the studies you have learned. So make sure you are calm and relaxed. Then you will know that you can finish it.

Budgeting Activity

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.


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.
