Ten tips to help you prepare for and get through the dreaded junior year.
By: Kayla Duff and Matt Livesay, Staff Writers
- Study for tests and quizzes in advance, so you don’t have a whole unit and packet of notes to study the night before (which is very overwhelming)
- Stay organized. Having a certain spot for all of your notes, classwork, and assignments makes things easier on you when doing homework or trying to study.
- Actually pay attention in class, instead of zoning out or sleeping.
- Take good notes that help you. Anything in bold or repeated is important.
- Focus on school, but also do things outside of school too, like seeing friends. You don’t want school to take up your whole life.
- Get involved in clubs, they sometimes give you a break from school.
- For partner projects, pick someone who will actually contribute, instead of your best friend. The project shouldn’t just fall on you.
- Set goals. It makes things easier to get done, and provides a sense of relief when a goal is accomplished.
- Take care of yourself! If you need a tutor or extra help, get some! It doesn’t make you “dumb”.
- Get your license as soon as you can. It makes meetings easier, and gives you a sense of relief and happiness!
