highlight your notes
Summarize; read your notes;
read your notes out loud (this helps with memory)
or make a graphic version of written work (lists, columns, Venn diagrams, etc.)
Practice with flashcards
; free digital flashcard programs like Quizlet and StudyStack are available to use with your Chromebook
Write memory work
over and over until you feel confident
You can also
use travel time
to and from school for:
Planning or reviewing notes
Listening to recorded summaries or points on an MP3 player
Then when you arrive home, it is much easier to get down to study
You are psyched up
Your purpose and task are set

Put yourself first – it is an important time for you – try to
talk to family about how they can make studying a little
easier for you, e.g. by agreeing times when you can
have your own space,
when they will try to be a bit quieter
around the house and when you would
rather not be disturbed

study and that working for something is
somehow a badge of dishonor.”
