When you don’t pay attention, you miss out on important information. Not paying attention in class makes it difficult to do well in school—and more difficult to get good grades. You may not realize it, but when teachers are up in front of a classroom, they can see everything. They know who is paying attention, who is doing their work, and who is listening to the class discussion. They also know who is writing personal notes, talking to their neighbor, or daydreaming. If you do any of these things, your teachers will know. It’s not enough to say that you want to get good grades. Your attitude and actions have to show it also. Always Do Your Homework Don’t think of homework as something you should do. Think of homework as something you must do. Much of your grade is based on how well you do your homework. This means that your grade drops every time you don’t turn in an assignment. Your grade also drops when you hurry through your homework and don’t do your best. Doing your homework not only helps you get better grades, it makes you a better, smarter student. “If you don’t do your homework, it kills your grade.” TJ
