Parties, music, video games, dating, road trips, social groups, fraternities, sororities. It’s actually a long list. College life for many students consists of scheduled classes and daytime or nighttime studying. The space in between might be filled with part-time work, but also quite possibly a myriad of distractions.
College life is exciting. There is no other time in life quite like it. College life most definitely does not mirror the rigid structure of the daily work world. Beginning college and staying on track in the first year requires personal discipline and an awareness of how college life’s many distractions can interfere with academics.
Plugging into college fun is typically the easy part. Achieving a true balance between academics and everything else is often a skill that is acquired over several semesters. Study habits become very important for most all college students because those who build their college career on “cramming” the night before a test will run the risk of serious academic underperformance if not academic failure.
So, being committed to academic achievement needs to be a deliberate personal choice. How you go about honoring this goal is completely up to you. Having a plan for studying every day is a strategy that works for a majority of college students. This daily time allotment for studying will yield tremendous benefits to one’s GPA and peace of mind.
I absolutely love this site. Match Fish Tank has a free lesson plan repository fully developed for elementary plus some middle and high. ou can view, share, and download the curriculum used every day at Match Charter School, the PreK-12 public school that was opened 15 years ago in Boston.
These materials have been developed and curated by teachers and curriculum experts over many years. In addition, they have a site for instructional coaches and teacher leaders for professional development. These experts think teachers should spend more time planning how to teach — with the unique learning needs of their students in mind—and less time worrying about the basics of what to teach. Good baseline curriculum and assessments free teachers to do just that.
Match Fishtank is an effort to share our curriculum with teachers everywhere to lessen their load …
Common Lit is one of my new all time favorite READING sites. First and foremost it is free to teachers. Materials are rigorous and relevant in a user friendly format. It is a unique resource available to promote critical thinking. It has an amazing collection of texts and even features paired texts which allows students to explore enduring themes. It aligns with Common Core standards and brings an immediate benefit to teachers and students. I am finding it a new “go to” resource and my students really love it!…
Word Hippo is an online dictionary/thesaurus which offers a wide range of other tools including opposites, rhyming words, translation, and lots more besides.
There are probably other sites which offer the same or similar features, but I liked the simplicity of Word Hippo. The example sentences function is particularly useful for students and teachers who want to see how words are used in context.…
