STUDENT SUCCESS TIP

Image titled Be a Successful Student Step 8
1
Pay attention. If you want to be a successful student, then paying attention in class is absolutely crucial to your success. While you don’t have to love every single subject that comes your way, you should be motivated enough to listen to your teachers, to avoid texting your friends, and to be focused enough to really hear what your teacher is telling you, and to be able to pick up on the most important aspects of each lesson.

  • In order to pay attention, it’s important to keep your eye on the teacher.
  • If you’re confused about something, you can quickly ask for clarification. If the lesson goes on and you feel yourself getting more and more lost, it’ll be hard to pay attention.

Have a safe and restful weekend!
