Weekly Study Tip from Teachers
Brought to you by: Ms. Brewer
For this week's study tip we asked 8th grade science teacher, Ms. Brewer. She responded with:
“My best tip is to do a little bit every day, rather than trying to cram everything in to one day. Repeated review really helps our brains remember things, so doing just a bit every day helps even more. Also, it’s easier to convince yourself to do something when you just have a little bit to do. You don’t try to avoid it because you just have to do a little bit. I’m using this now as I study German. I’m just doing 10 minutes a day, but I’m doing it every single day consistently, so it’s adding up to more learning than if I just did it once a day.”
Being consistent is very important, as Ms. Brewer stated above. Setting a designated time each day, let us say 5 P.M., helps stay consistent. The more you do something, the more you get used to it. Just like a habit. So, make it a habit to be consistent with studying, that way you won’t get behind. Speaking of getting behind, if you get everything you need to get done on that day the less you will have to do the next day and your homework/assignments will not pile up.
Thank you, Ms. Brewer, for this wonderful study tip! (Or should I say test tip?) If you have any study tips of your own, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
