Schedule: Tape color-coded copies inside your academic planner and each of your binders or notebooks.

Academic Planner: Keep it in your backpack at all times and use daily. Every Friday afternoon or Sunday evening, devote 15 to 20 minutes to writing out all your classes and homework for the week to come.

Notes: Make sure your class notes are organized in a system that works best for you. Make sure you either have a 3-hole punch or pockets in your binders/notebooks in which to keep all loose-leaf handouts.

Email: Use email to contact your teachers to set up conferences, to notify them of absences, and to ask questions about the class or material. Communicating with your teachers goes a long way.
