Students tips

Students’ Tips

  • “I always read before attending a seminar, for any class… [One reason] it helps me understand better and also that way I am not bogging down the whole seminar asking questions that are clearly answered by the reading materials... [so] I read, attend seminar, do the homework and then do discussion. In this fashion I have a good handle on what I am to write about.” Heather Dunlap


Student s tips cont d

Student’s Tips cont’d

  • Don’t Panic! (a student a long time ago had a plaque with this that she placed in front of her whenever she was working on a difficult topic, even during tests.)

  • Complete the unit by Sunday, start the next unit on Monday, so when it opens on Wednesday you are ready.
