- On an extra sheet of paper, in a notepad, or on a dry-erase board, plan out a homework schedule for yourself before you start your homework each day or even at the beginning of the week. Organize this schedule depending on things like what is due soonest and how long each assignment will take. You can also add after-school activities. This will help you stay organized while doing your homework and keep you from being stressed. This is also a great way to make sure that you turn in all of your homework on time.
- Clean out your binder at the end of each month or quarter. Get rid of all those tests and old homework assignments that are stacked up in your folders. Also, get rid of pens, pencils, erasers and other things in your pencil case that you don’t or can’t use. This will help you not to lose anything and keep your pencil case a reasonable size.
- Figure out who has all the same classes as you. You might have already thought this one through but if you are having a off-day and spaced on a couple things you might want to know who can refresh your memory. Also, you and this friend can work together to remember what homework you have. Just as long as you don’t rely on this person for everything, then I’m sure that they will be happy to help you.
