Here are two study tips from over 1,500 tips submitted by students and teachers
If you are studying for your final exam, what you have to do is sit somewhere comfy, and organize your stuff. Then get to studying. What you have to do is read over what you have over and over aloud. It works. If you are stressed, study for an hour or two straight and then take a 15-20 minute break and get back.

When I have long assignments I work on one for a while and then another. I switch back and forth. This way I don't get too bored and tired with one.

Here are two teachings tips from our collection of over 250 practical tips
Listening for Verbal Signals
Encourage your students to listen for verbal signals as you and other teachers lecture. Focus on statements that signal key concepts (e.g., most important), support for a point (e.g., for instance), differences (e.g., on the other hand), and summarization (e.g., in conclusion).
Your students will be more effective note takers if they pay attention to these verbal signals.
Transition from recess or PE
Some students become overly excited and even hyperactive following recess or PE. Follow the physical activity with a brief quiet time (five to ten minutes) in which the students listen to calming music. You can also do this after a test or a long period of seat work. Doing this can also have the positive by-product of developing your students' appreciation for music.
