Chalk Talk: Two Skills for Academic Success
Reaching your academic potential involves a lot of hard work and dedication. There are many things you can do to improve or maintain good grades and ensure that you’re learning all you possibly can. First, manage your time wisely. If you have homework, make sure to set aside a specific time to complete it without any distractions. Turn off your iPod, put your phone on silent and make sure your family gives you peace and quiet. If you have the time and space to complete your homework, you’ll do it much faster and retain much more information. Another thing you can do to ensure your academic success is to keep yourself organized. If you don’t have a planner, get one. Use it to write down important dates like when papers are due or when exams will be. Also keep your homework, notes and assignments organized by subject. Have a folder for each class, that way nothing gets lost or mixed up.
