At a Glance: 4 Quick Solutions for Keeping Up With Studying

Does your teen need some new strategies to help him keep up with studying?

1 Catalog by class.
Suggest that your teen use a different colored binder or folder for each class. This will keep his notes organized and easy to find. Encourage him to organize by date and topic and to use le pockets for loose papers
and handouts.Check out these simple solutions.

2 Have one dedicated space where your child stores school materials at home.
Leaving notebooks, notes and textbooks scattered around the house makes it harder to stay organized.

3 Have a system for study materials.

The system can be as simple as a shoebox filled with paper, pencils, highlighters and plastic bags of paper clips. At the end of a study session, make sure you or your child restocks the supplies and sharpens the pencils for the next day.

4 Type up class notes.

When your teen types up his class notes, they’ll be easier to read. But typing them can also help him remember the information better. As a bonus, your teen can email them to himself for easy access at school if he forgets his notebook. Or he can use a cloud service like Google Drive or Dropbox to access school documents from anywhere with an Internet connection.
