Students can improve at school by displaying good behavior and improving the quality of their class work. Regular attendance, good organization, effective time management and taking notes also help students advance at school.
Students with behavior challenges at school can improve by learning better self-control, following directions, being honest and using anger management or other behavioral techniques, if necessary.
Students can improve the quality of their work by double-checking their work for errors, asking questions when they aren't clear about ideas, taking good notes and taking pride in the work they present to their teacher.
Attending classes on a regular basis allows students to improve their grades. Regular attendance helps students absorb the material, participate in helpful class discussions and may help them earn attendance points if these are offered.
Good organizational skills helps students thrive in school. These skills include keeping materials, due dates and assignments organized and having a schedule for classes and study time. Students can use planners to note when assignments are due. Having folders, notebooks and other organizational tools helps students keep track of important handouts. Sticking to a schedule helps students manage their time effectively.
Good writing and communication skills help students improve at school, regardless of the class or academic major. Students who struggle to communicate effectively can practice speeches and presentations, or seek help from tutors at school.
