Steps to Success: How to Get Good Grades
(Adapted from How to Get Good Grades, Woodburn Press, 1999)
  • Believe in yourself - "To succeed, we must first believe that we can." (Michael Korda)
  • Take good notes, listen actively
  • Read your textbook (scan, read, review)
  • Find a good place to study at home (without distractions)
  • Study for tests (this helps to reduce anxiety)
  • Be in school every day!
  • Be organized (use your binder-reminder, organize your notebook)
  • Manage your time well (exercise self-discipline, do what you have to do!)
  • Be successful in the classroom (arrive on time to school and class, adapt to your different teachers, be prepared)
