    Using Google Classroom

    Here's a short, helpful video on getting started with Google classroom: Google classroom basics



    Set the Mood
    Create a good study area with everything you need (for example, a calculator).

    Know Where to Begin
    Make a list of everything you need to do, and note all deadlines. Do the more difficult assignments first, so you don't have to face them at the end.

    Study at the Same Time Every Day
    Even if you don't have homework every night, use the time to review notes. If sitting down to work is part of your normal routine, you'll approach it with less dread. Also, you'll become a pro at using time productively.

    Keep Things in Perspective
    Know how much weight each assignment or test carries, and use your time accordingly.

    Get More Involved
    Keep your mind from wandering by taking notes, underlining sections, discussing topics with others or relating your homework to something you're studying in another class.

    Organize the Information
    People process information in different ways. Some people like to draw pictures or charts to digest information, others prefer to read out loud or make detailed outlines. Try to find the methods that work best for you. Ask your teacher for recommendations if you're having trouble.

    Take Advantage of Any Free Time
    Use extra time to review notes, prepare for an upcoming class or start your homework.

    Study with a Friend
    Get together (virtually, for now!) with friends and classmates to quiz each other, compare notes and predict test questions. Consider joining a study group.

    If you have concerns about the amount or type of homework you have, you may want to talk to your family, teachers or counselor. They can help you understand how much time you need to allot for homework and how to manage your tasks.

    Celebrate Your Achievements
    Reward yourself for hitting milestones or doing something well.
