I don’t expect a lot of guys to know about Tim Gunn, but he co-hosts the show “Project Runway” with Heidi Klum. And one of his most famous quotes is, “Make it Work!” because designers are given limited time to fashion a look on a budget based on the challenge.
In high school, you’re faced with many challenges, but one challenge that is the most important to over come is your work. Your GPA (Grade Point Average) determines what kind of college you can go to (and at some schools, if you’re allowed to go out for lunch!) So it’s very important that you keep your work up because it’s working to help you get to where the grass is much greener!
Here are some tips on homework and studying:
- Never leave homework undone because at the end of the semester all the missing assignments build on top of each other and can stand between you getting an A or a B--or worse--a C or a D!
- Getting your homework done is also an indirect way of studying for a test or quiz coming up and all of it will be written in your own words, so in this case, homework is awesome!
- Do your homework during lunch because there's always time to hang out with your friends after school -- and it cuts down on your workload. That way you can have more fun later. Work now, play later.
- Teachers will be pleased to help you study because it shows your determination to learn and succeed. Always ask your teachers when they might be available to help you, but the best times are usually before or after school and during your lunch period, if they have that time off.
- Also, it might not seem like it, but upperclassmen will gladly help you if you’re struggling. They remember how hard those classes were and will help you if you ask nicely.
- For subjects that are really hard try copying a copy of your blank homework assignments before you complete them. And when you're studying, do the assignments again and see if you get the same right answers. This is really helpful for foreign language, math, science, and history.
