Chalk Talk: Great Strategies for Academic Success
Finding academic success is a challenge for many students. But the most successful students employ strategies to help them navigate the demands of testing, homework, family and friends and reach their highest academic potential. One important strategy you can use to boost your academic performance is to set goals. Goal setting provides a map for you to follow to academic success. Start out small. Set a goal that you will improve your grade in class by 5% within one month. To achieve that goal, outline some things you can do such as joining a study group or getting help from your teacher after school. Another simple strategy to use is to use effective study skills. Take notes in class and keep them organized in a binder or folder. Ask questions if you’re confused about something. Take practice tests and ask for additional assignments so you can really practice the skills you’re learning. By following these easy steps, you’ll be well on your way to success.
