Lizzie’s Lists of Helpful How-To’s: How to raise your grades

Hello blog readers, I’m afraid my blog might be a little short this week because I have a large pile of homework to do (the size of that monstrous pile is actually frightening) and my grades are slowly slipping past my fingers. So please, forgive me, next week will be better, I promise.

Anyways, I’m writing on a topic that’s very relevant to my life right now: how to raise your grades.

1.Ask for extra credit or to redo assignments. If your teacher agrees, bless their heart. I truly believe that every teacher should offer those options.

2. Come in for extra help when the teacher is not busy. I have found that during seminar, teachers can be preoccupied with other students and tasks and not have enough time to give you all the help you need. If you’re really struggling, plan to see them before or after school for the best help.

3. Ask friends for help. I would only recommend doing this if you have friends that understand the topic that you’re struggling with and they actually know how to help. If they don’t, follow another one of these tips instead.

4. Participate in class as much as possible. Ask questions and answer questions all the time. It’s really important that you understand what’s going on and you can answer questions about the lesson. If you don’t feel comfortable asking questions in front of the class, then wait until after class to do so.

5. Ask teachers about future lesson plans and how you can prepare. Not only will this give you major assurance that you might possibly be able to save your grade but it’s also just nice to know what you’ll be learning about and doing.

6. Write down all of your assignments, it’s kind of an obvious one but again it’s super important.

7. Study, another obvious one, but just do it, no matter how boring it is, trust me.

Tough it out and you might just get the results you want. Also, keep in mind that it’s not the world if you don’t end up with the exact grade you want. Just try your best and appreciate all the effort you put in.
