FROM THE COUNSELING OFFICE
Conferences are over and a new quarter has begun!

Many of you may be wondering. "How can I improve my grades this year?" The short answer is often found by improving your study skills. I believe that all good things in this life require effort; the only exception is our salvation! 

I hope you find the following study tips useful. And, remember to ask the people God has placed in your life for help!

For more useful study tips, you can read the whole article at https://student-tutor.com/blog/top-10-high-school-study-tips/
Study Tip #1
Be engaged, take notes, and listen. 
So you’re sitting in your class and your teacher is talking about Chemical Bonds, and suddenly you’re thinking, "What did I pack for lunch? Do I have soccer practice today? Did I remember my cleats? … What am I doing this weekend?" 

Our minds naturally wander, and when this happens, our focus is removed from the present which MEANS we’re not absorbing the material being taught! Ahhh!
Participating in class is a great high school study skill to build. 
It helps you to stay focused on what is being taught. Do this by:

  • Taking notes
  • Raising your hand to ask questions
  • Engaging in class discussion

One method of note-taking is to rephrase your notes in a way that helps you better grasp the concepts, as is shown in the Cornell Method Notetaking.
If this method doesn’t work for you, another method you can try is to draw pictures in your notes.

Spending time coming up with a picture representation will reinforce the concept in your head the same way re-phrasing might.

And if you’re not super artistic, don’t worry! The pictures don’t have to be as good as this one, they just have to convey the concept to you in some way other than words.
