(MUST READ!) 12 Things you must always do as a (good) student



1.Like all exceptionally great students, you must
pay attention . When a teacher is giving a
lesson, take notes and if you don’t understand
something, raise your hand and ask questions.
The more questions you ask, the smarter you’ll
get, believe it or not. By passing notes and
talking to friends, you won’t learn anything, so
pay close attention!
2.Review your notes when you have free time.
3.Take some time to write some problems up, or
you could ask someone to write them for you .
Just remember, it doesn’t hurt to go over what
you have learned.
4.Do your homework . Teachers give you
homework for a reason. It is to review what
you have learned that day. Take advantage of
your free time. Do your homework on the
way home from school and in any spare time.
Do as much at school as you can; you have the
teacher there in case you need help. Make sure
not to rush on your homework, to check over
it, and to be neat. If you really want to be a
successful student, you should know right from
the beginning when you want to be great at
anything, you have to put up with things that
just don’t seem fair. Doing your homework is
not a big deal. Remember, homework can also
help you develop good habits and attitudes.
Always do what is asked of you.
5.Be prepared . Bring everything you need with
you to class. It would be a good idea to bring
books, folders, pens, pencils, homework, review
sheets and anything else you need.
6.Get organized. Staying organized in school is
extremely important. If you are organized,
then you are one step ahead in being successful.
Keep a folder for each subject, and yes, you
put your math papers in your math folder, you
put your Language Arts papers in your
Language Arts folder, you put your science
papers in your science folder, and so on. It
would really be a good idea to color code or
label your folders.
7.Study. It would be a good idea to start studying
a few days before a test. Make a study
schedule. If an extracurricular activity gets in
the way of your studying, tell the person in
charge of that certain event that you will not be
able to attend that event, or you will have to
leave early. However, there will be certain
situations where you will have to attend. In
this kind of situation, you will just have to
study another day. This is where your study
schedule comes in. Write out a schedule of the
week of your test and find your free time.
Always remember, use your time wisely.
Study as if you are motivated for the outcome
of your hard work.
8.Start to read a little more . If you are not
already a reader, start at your level and work
your way up. You may not know this, but by
reading more challenging and difficult books,
you are expanding your vocabulary.
9.Ask a parent or older sibling to look over your
notes and create a mini-test for you 3 days
advance of your test. You should always want
to study before the night of your test.
10.If you’re stuck then do not lose your cool, just
focus on your work and you’ll succeed .
11.Use of mind maps can be helpful for
understanding hard topics .
12.Don’t put off work for later . Make a daily
routine for yourself, it really works. Keep all
of your electonics such as your phone, iPod
and laptop away from you as these cause
distraction. When you come home from school,
read through what the teacher has said in class
that day and practice a few math problems to be
right on top.
