This is most of what I've graded this weekend! I have more! I am trying really hard to stay on top of your grades! Your grade is important to me! While I was grading I became very present to something - I was reminded of something.
I have a study tip. Mainly for APUSH, but anyone can do this! Be prepared! When you get work - make it into flash cards or whatever you need! For all my classes I do NOT have you do busy work. All your homework will help you. So don't wait till the test to study it! Study it now!
When I was in my first year of college - we had no homework. We didn't do anything till October. This was strange to me, and I noticed. But then it happened. About Mid October every teacher said we would have a midterm over the first 20 chapters plus their lecture. WHAT!!!! I only had two nights to study. I was freaking out!
I never wanted to experience that again! So after I survived those tests - I would make flashcards of my notes every time after class. I learned in high school I am a flashcard girl! Every time I used them I would pass the test!
High school is a great time to learn how you learn!
