HOW TO GET ON THE WORK ETHIC ROLL
- Use Three-Ring Notebooks for Class Notes
- Keep Your Locker and Backpack Neat
- Use Class Time and Study Blocks
- Be in School on Time Every Day. Unless you have an extended illness or a serious health problem, you should miss no more than five or six days of school a year.
- Learn How to Adapt to Different Teachers. You might have one teacher who counts you late if you’re not in your seat when the bell rings, and another teacher who considers you on time if you’ve got one foot inside the door.
- Be Prepared for Each Class. To be prepared, you need to have books, paper, pencils, etc. with you when you go to class. You also need to have all of your homework done.
- Always do your homework.
- Participate in Class. Participating in class makes it more interesting, and it helps keep your mind focused. Ask and answer questions, and get involved in class discussions.
- Take Responsibility for Your Grades. If you get a good grade on a test or paper, be proud of your accomplishment. If you receive a poor grade, figure out what you can do to get a better grade next time. Always do your own work. You’ll learn more.
