Study Tips

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

I think it's good to study with your friend sometimes. It's a good way to submit information to your mind. You can solve your problems together, but if you want to study a lesson that is just for memorization, it's better to study alone.

SEE ALL STUDY TIPS

When I take lecture notes, at the top I write the name of the class, the date, and the name of the instructor. If the lecture is from the textbook, I write the name of the textbook and the parts covered. I focus on these parts when I study for a test.

Selective Attention

Students are apt to do many things in class that you do not approve of. You can go crazy trying to respond to everything. Some of these things can be ignored without negative consequences. Save your energy for those things that have to be attended to.


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.
