The Guided Learning Handbook:
Student Advice for Success
All the advice, tips, and good ideas in the Guided Learning Handbook come directly from past and current GL students.
- If you think trouble in a class is coming, don't wait! Meet with a teacher and fix the problem before it becomes a problem.
- When doing homework, put a * next to challenging questions. That will remind you to ask a teacher or friend, and to pay special attention when the class goes over that question the next day.
- Use your 1st Quarter Grades to set your goals for the 2nd Quarter (and so on...)
- Even if you don't think you have to study... study! Studying a different way, like having a friend quiz you instead of using flashcards, might help you learn.
- If you don't have time during class to write your homework down, write it down before or after class.
- Procrastination causing problems? Tell people about the work you have to do; you'll feel responsible to get it done!
- Test reassessments and retakes are a second chance to show what you know. If a teacher offers a retake, take advantage.
- Don't hesitate to ask if you don't understand something in class. Asking a lot of questions is the mark of a great student, it shows you want to learn.
- Get some sleep! The more rested you are, the better you'll be able to focus the next day.
