Study Tips

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

I take as many pieces of paper as I need for the subject I'm studying. I write questions and answers on each. I place them on my floor. I'll look away, think of the answer, then look back to see if its right. What I do it makes it so much easier to do better on a test or quiz!

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.


Hold on to Thank You Notes

Maintain a folder in which to keep anything that is complimentary from your students and their parents. As you know, there will be times when you wonder if what you are doing is worthwhile. It will help to go through the compliments whenever you have this feeling.
