I plan to overcome this fear by making and sticking to a schedule, and reminding myself that everything doesn’t have to be perfect. I already have a work schedule planned that will allow me to attend class on Wednesdays, play softball on Thursdays, and get my 3 night shifts in. When I work the weekend, I will work to have my assignments completed early and ready to turn in. I
I try to study in between my classes during my two hour breaks on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays so I don’t fall behind in my schoolwork. Lastly for this section, I plan on changing up my study habits. In grade school all the way up until senior year of high school, I made it a habit to study and do homework in front of my television. Now, that will not happen. I am only going to study and do homework while sitting in silence or while listening to instrumental music.
The advantage gives students more motivation to do well in school. Another advantage of open campus is school lunches. As of now our school has three lunches, with open campus they might be able to minimize it to maybe two lunches A and B. Some students in C lunch have complained of shortage of food and with open campus more students would eat elsewhere, increasing the food supply for school lunches. Also, If students are allowed to leave campus, and their homes are nearby, students can save money on lunch and eat from home.
For many graduate students they already have full times jobs and families which can make pursing a difficult task figuring out how to manage home time and school work. Its important to remember which “Grad school requires taking a long term perspective on time. Use a yearly, monthly, and weekly calendar ("Time Management Tips For Graduate Students", 2013). Created a calendar not only helps to keep you motivated it also helps with time management. Its important to be able to set aside the time needed to complete the assignments.
Instead of reading through long texts, sometimes reading pointless information to get to the information you want, you have the specific information you need in seconds. Another positive thing about google and the internet in general is that learning the information can be done at your pace, unlike in the classroom from time to time. In the classroom, especially in a college setting, a professor will teach at his/her own pace, regardless of the student's pace. This makes it hard for a student to learn the information and having the internet is a great tool to have in this case. In other cases, like Carr said, it does make people lazy.
First of all, I love waking up on a Friday morning knowing that all I have to do is go to work, attend my class, and after, do whatever I want because there is no going to sleep early, or waking up early in the morning for work or school, every Friday when I wake up I get the same exact feeling, the feeling of knowing that Friday is the perfect day to be a different person, and that I am going to have the time to do all the activities I was unable to complete during the week because of my busy schedule. In addition, when I get to the
Working full-time, like many others in this program, I tend to find that time management is extremely important and where I make most of my daily decisions. Upon completing my first course at the university, I decided to devote the next few days to work alone. As the week progressed however, I devoted more time to work and ultimately found myself in a predicament when it came to my assignments for school. I made my decisions largely focusing on the marginal benefits of money, timeliness of my paperwork and responsibilities, preparedness for
On the other hand, sometimes I would rather learning on my own. A good and experienced teacher can help me learn faster and easier. Sometimes when learning a course by myself which is hard and confusing to understand and has few sources available, I get discouraged after spending a lot of time. In this situation, I’ll look for a teacher and request for help from him or her. And then he or she will teach me the course efficiently in a short time and therefore I will learn faster and better and won’t get discouraged and confused.
By which I mean taking the time to organize a schedule that works for you, you don't need to burn every brain cell you have, to do this either. I like to set aside a few hours a day to actively study, or even just to simply brush up on something, I set a personal goal to learn something new everyday. Cramming for an upcoming test has been proven to be ineffective, while allowing for very short term recall, this keeps you from being able to remeber information you need on a long term basis. Another huge part of your Study Skills tool kit is taking notes, with the way in which you choose to do so having a large impact
