No matter where you are in your schooling, succeeding in school can be challenging. By encouraging good study habits and maintaining organization of your time and supplies, you can succeed in school. Taking care of oneself is essential if you want to feel your best and have all the energy you require. Not only does taking notes help you recall what you hear or read, but it also keeps your brain active and allows you to fully process what you have learned. Write down important passages from the text or develop a list of any questions you have while you read if your instructor permits you to take notes during class. Writing down your notes is faster and easier than typing them.
Ask your teacher questions; it is their job to make sure you are understanding and learning. Asking questions will show your teachers that you are engaged and interested while also helping you learn the material better. If you’re too shy to raise your hand and ask a question in front of the class, try talking to your teacher after class or sending them an email. If you’re a college or university student, your instructor may offer office hours when you can talk to them in private and ask them questions regarding the course material. Even while it can seem rather obvious, it is possible to get overwhelmed and forget about all the things you have to get done. Make sure to complete the reading you were given and keep up with.
