If you do, your classes will go faster, you’ll have less to do on your own, and you’ll get better grades. Here’s some advice to help make this happen. Ask for help Teachers are usually happy to help you, but you have to ask. If you’re struggling in a class, get help early. Know your teachers Think about what’s important to your teachers. Are they strict about rules? Do they give points for participation? Participate in class Participating in class makes the class more interesting, and it helps keep your mind focused. Ask questions, volunteer answers, and participate in discussions. You’ll learn more, and your teachers will be impressed. Come to class with your homework done In many classes, homework is a significant portion of your final grade. (If you haven’t read the short story that was assigned in English, you aren’t going to get nearly as much out of the class discussion.) Have a positive attitude Go to your classes ready to learn and confident in your ability to succeed. 11
