How To Study - Articles Surfing
There is a time and place for everything.
This is especially so with homework. Before we even start, make sure you have checked these items. .
1.) Use a desk or table big enough to spread out books, notes, worksheets, work supplies.
2.) Make sure you have adequate light.
3.) A place to study that is free of distractions.
Have you found that place? It could be the kitchen or dining room table, or in your bedroom. Wherever you choose, it is best if you can study in that same place all the time. Now, your subconscious will know that this is the place to concentrate and study. Your pens and pencils, paper, erasers, stapler, calculator, and anything else you use often can be kept nearby.
Keep your school supplies in a box or bag or drawer that is protected and you can get to readily.
So when it's time to do your homework you don't have to scour the house looking for pen and paper. Then you need a calculator or something else. Ten minutes later you find one. See what I mean? Stop all that before it starts.
Pencils and crayons should be sharp, calculators fully equipped with fresh batteries, markers with lids tightly attached. Why don't you ask your parents to help by suggesting to them that they take responsibility for keeping the supply kit full and in working order.
Now, here is the real secret of learning. Concentrate on what you are doing. It is as simple as that. It is a skill that you will use the rest of your life. Learn to eliminate any possible distractions and completely focus on the task at hand. Here are a few tips to help you do this.
1.) Make a consistent routine out of your study time. Don't mix it up, make a habit out of it. Do it a 4 p.m. every day.
2.) Always study in a quiet environment. This goes along with getting rid of distractions.
3.) Take breaks every so often to refresh your brain.
And finally, but most importantly do not daydream. Every student does. If you do it shows that you are not focusing on what you are studying. Get back into the now and forget about your plans for tomorrow.
To prevent daydreaming during class, anticipate what questions the teacher will ask by going over your notes or the course material. This will also help you by showing interest as to what the instructor is saying. Try to avoid contact or distractions in general or with other students and make it a one to one relationship with the instructor.
Finally, to help you stay focused, take excellent notes; they will also help you later on for tests.
Incorporate these few study habits and see how well it does toward improving your grades and concentration.
