Well my teacher was discussing this all day and I thought it was very helpful. If you are like me and you have a busy school life homework is the last thing you need on your mind. I have football practice right after school and then I have 2 honors classes that load me with homework. So here I go...
Find all materials before beginning: What this means is rake up everything you need for your homework so you don't have to go looking for it and get frustrated when you don't find it. Usually teens get aggrivated or off tasks when looking for materials.Maybe you can even get a snack or some water ready. Study shows that chewing gum is good while doing homework because your brain thinks it is getting food.
Find a nice area: Find somewhere you feel comfortable. Some people like to work alone in a room sitting on their bed. Or some like to be around people and not feel alone(me). Basically find a good spot you like.
DON'T watch television: Television is a major reason why teens don't get their homework done quicker. They look up thinking they will only watch for 1 minute then they get sucked into it. You can try listening to music, though some can't really think clearly while they listen to music some can. But television is a big NO-NO.
Set a routine: Make a set time that you are comfortable with and something you can stick to. Preferably something descent such as 6:00 p.m. But remember for it to work you must stick to it for a while an then it will become natural.
Hit it and hit it hard: When you start doing your homework don't shift on to other assignments then your brain will become confused about what to focus on. Try to just finish up as fast as possible.
Switch on different subjects when done: Ok, this one is a little hard to explain but I will try. Lets say you just finished your Math homework, then after that you should go to work on your English homework. Your brain uses different parts so one part of the brain is not being overworked. Your brain functions better when it has rest(such as sleeping). This has also been Scientifically proven.
REVIEW!: Take about 5-10 minutes on what you learned in class that one day. It will add about 30 minutes extra work for you so you will understand it more. Also this helps you on tests, instead of cramming everything in your brain you already know it so you can briefly study. It makes things a lot more easier.
Well these are some of the things I do to help my school career out. Thank You all for reading.
Rep is appreciated much!
