                      IMPROVING STUDY SKILLS

Do you want to get better grades?  YOU CAN DO IT!  Here are some tips 
that will help you do your best in school all year long:

* Set aside a specific time to study. Many kids find it easiest to 
come home, have something to eat, then study right away, but if you have 
other activities at that time you'll need to find what works for you.

* Study every day. If you don't have assignments to do, take a few 
minutes to review topics that you find hardest. 

* Create your own study space. If you don't have a desk in your room, 
or if the dining room table doesn't give you enough peace, consider going 
to the local library or taking up a corner of a quiet room.

* Don't do other things while you are studying. This includes watching 
TV, fixing a snack, and talking on the phone. Some people claim they 
can study better with classical or soft instrumental music playing. 

* If you have a lot of reading to do to prepare for a test, try 
taking notes as you go along. Otherwise, you'll find your mind wandering.

* Homework shouldn't take up all of your spare time. If you find one 
teacher is giving out hours of homework all the time, it could be that 
he/she doesn't realize it takes so long. Talk to your teacher, or to your 
parents so they can talk to your teacher and alert her to the amount of time 
your homework is taking up.

* Finally, ask for help if you need it. Teachers, parents, and friends 
are usually willing to go over something with you again if you didn't 
quite "get it" the first time.
