How to Boost Final Semester Grades
It might seem like there's not much time left, when, in fact, there's a lot that can be done! Here are some tips and reminders to maximize your semester marks.
1) Encourage Self Advocacy. Does your child have a mountain of missing or late work? Even though the class syllabus may state certain rules for late work, many teachers encourage students to turn in work (even if it's late). They will often make exceptions if you ask. 2) Inquire About Extra Credit. Teachers often give extra credit for students who can demonstrate mastery through alternative types of assignments. 3) Get Help with Study Skills. Sometimes making outlines and flash cards dose not come naturally to students. These skills can be effective immediately!
4) Finals Exams are Huge. Sometimes final exams or final projects can be weighted 25-50% of the final mark. Preparing effectively can be a game-changer. 5) Get Ready for Next Semester. Starting strong is the best way to finish strong. If needed, find academic coaching to help ensure you achieve your goals.
