How to Plan Ahead

  • Each day, make a list of the assignments your teacher gives you. (See the next page.)
  • Find out what you must do for each assignment.
  • Make sure you have everything you need: paper, pens, pencils, your books, your handbook, a computer, and so on.
  • Plan to work on your assignments at the same time every day.
  • Plan to work on a big assignment a little each day.
  • Don’t rush your assignments!

Tips for Doing the Work

  • Select a spot. Study in the same place each day. Pick a quiet place.
  • Follow directions. If you have a math assignment, make sure to do the right problems!

  • Do the hardest work first. Do the most difficult work right away, when you have the most energy.

  • Have a reading plan. When your assignment includes reading, use a reading strategy. (See pages 211–225.)

  • Take breaks. Take breaks when you really need them. Not every five minutes, though!
