A student, young or older, must have organization skills in order to stay on track. Color coding notebooks or dividers can help with organization. Every week or so a student needs or reorganize his/her information. Secondly, use review sheets from teachers to study what he/she wants you to know. Look in your text, if you have one, or go to the teacher's web site and get the information off of the web. Write, rewrite, and have a member of your family or a friend to verbally ask you questions and see if you know the materials. The questions you did not remember lets him/her to review the material some more. Thirdly, always use other reference material, extra credit worksheets, ask for help if you do not understand. It is very hard to pass a quiz or test if a student does not understand the material. If a student is not close with a teacher, he/her might want to ask another teacher for help. A student must dedicate the time to study in hopefully in a quiet place.
