Study Tips

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

Never take studies as a burden. Study once a day whenever you feel like it but with full concentration. Make up your mind to study the long and tough lessons first, and the short and easy ones at the end.

Teaching Tips

Here are two teachings tips from our collection of over 250 practical tips

Saving Students Work

Provide a file drawer in which you have a folder for each student in your class. Each student can file writing projects and important graded assignments in his or her folder. Encourage students to discard unneeded materials so that the folders do not become overly bulky.


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.
