Late night cram sessions hours before the big test aren’t for everyone—and they often don’t work for anyone. Each of us learn, retain, and use information differently. That means there’s no one study method that works for everybody.
Curt Mayer, Next Level Graduation Coach at Sheridan High School, has some study tips to help you get everything you can out of your schoolwork. Check them out and try different approaches till you find what works for you.
- Good communication with teachers.
Communicate well, and soon you’ll find you’re acing tests, assignments, and achieving success overall.
- Reach out to your teachers.
Talk with them about areas where you may be struggling. Ask what they need from you and areas for improvement. This will allow you to zero in on and spend more time on the specific topics you need to study.
- Consider ELO.
Extra Learning Opportunities are offered every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in the Sheridan High School Library. Teachers are available during this time for students seeking extra help straight from the source.
- Look into FEO.
The Friday Early Out program means early release days that students can spend those hours they would have normally been in class with other students in their position. Studying in groups can be a huge help to those who have difficulty focusing.
- Enlist a tutor.
Next Level helps to ensure tutors are available for any student that needs one, in any subject. Tell us what you need, and we’ll make it happen.
