Some Strategies to Help Study Faster

Great strategy for studying is to take your notes and just completely rewrite them. This helps you to learn material in multiple ways since you are reading, writing, and constantly thinking about the material. This strategy works best for me when I have to study for tests that require learning many concepts, instead of memorization. If you just rewrite your notes a few times over, you will find that you learned a lot about the material you are rewriting, without even thinking about it.

For studying mathematics and science, the best strategy for me is to just spend as much time as possible doing the hardest problems of the material I’m studying. Learning math and science is usually just all about practice, and there doesn’t seem to be any substitute for spending time doing multiple problems. Spend as much time as you need on each problem until you fully understand it, or else you may have wasted your time even looking at it in the first place. Studying for math and science can be tedious unfortunately, but that’s just the nature of those subjects.

Studying really isn’t that much of a chore once you learn how to do it the right way. If you can apply these studying strategies to your sessions, then you will find you can learn a lot more in a lot less time. You just have to find what strategies work best for you and then apply them, and don’t give up.

Useful Tricks Teach Children

  • Mathematics lessons

Youngsters will find this subject incredibly boring. Many teachers use colour to highlight answers or objects to show differences in numbers. Math bingo is a well-known game played in the classroom and it works well if there are many students. Make sure to offer a prize for the winner so that you keep their attention.

If you want to teach students multiplication you can either make them act as the numbers or you can create a game that requires them to shout the answer. You could write a sum on the board and whoever has the piece of paper with the correct answer on it has to get up and stick it to the board.

  • Science Lessons

Science is the subject where you can experiment and question why a certain thing happens in the world. Children like to see reactions. The best way to start this off is by doing the volcano reaction. Make your students construct an interesting volcano with trees and a realistic landscape. This will be fun for them to watch when they see the result of the experiment.

When it comes to lessons involving the physical reactions, such as impacts and crashes, you can use boxes with elastic. Make your students create force on a wheeled box using wind energy or fire energy in order to get it to move. Then explain to them why the reaction happened.

  • Theory Lessons

English, art theory, science theory, and history are not the most exciting subjects for most students. Most students’ minds will drift away. When teaching these subjects it is ideal to use as much imagery as possible and get your students to be creative. Start off by making them create a story that is relevant to a particular time era or situation. They learn quickly if they experience it or are able to visualise it. You may need a lot of stationery so it might be best to visit a¬†cash and carry¬†wholesaler to get the stationery in bulk.

Info of Guide to Teaching Abroad

There are a number of countries that want Native English speakers and teachers to teach English as a Foreign Language in local state schools or private schools. This is also a great opportunity for teachers that are looking to live and work aboard looking to start a new life. The problem here is that salaries are often at the local rate and so if you have financial commitments back home it won’t be enough for you on a permanent basis. You also have to be careful about the local regulations which are often less enforced compared to western state education regulations. I have heard of teachers becoming very frustrated and de-motivated through what they perceive as essential systems and procedures that are just not in place. There is of course the culture difference. Unlike in an International School you will be working predominantly with local teachers and so you must adhere to their culture or you will find it very difficult to get along with your colleagues. At International schools by contrast the majority of teachers are likely to be expats and so you will be with a similar group of people you are in your own country.

There are a growing number of companies now that are looking for native English speakers to teach students online through their software. A lot of the students are looking for extra classes in the evening. In theory, you can work from anywhere in the world if you have a good and stable internet connection, you just need to be available in the evenings and weekends. This is another good opportunity but can be intense and many have quit early on having taken on too many hours before actually realizing how difficult it can be.

Study and Learning Stress

The learning process itself does not cause stress if it is approached with a relaxed but focused mindset. A closed mind will experience all the learning stress in the world and still not learn much. The three main factors of learning are goals, mindsets and distractions.

Having proper goals is important because learning useless stuff is… well… useless. If you can’t separate wheat from chaff, you will be placing yourself under stress for no good reason. Define your goal clearly and make a sensible study plan.

The proper mindset is what determines whether studying will result in learning. The nastiest error people make is to think they already know something well, and they refuse to correct or improve that ‘knowledge’. If you are not ready to let go of old falsehoods, learning becomes a very difficult and very stressful process.

If your line of thought is constantly interrupted with distractions, losing and establishing focus again is mentally very demanding. Jumping from one state of mind to another against your will is a prime source of stress.
