Advice

The thought of the upcoming classes causes anguish and there is absolutely no strength to learn? Perhaps you need additional motivation to make classes fun. It will not be possible to influence teachers and schools, so you have to solve this problem yourself!

  1. Boredom is a lack of interest. Remember what you like doing in your free time. Add these things to your life - for example, find time after class or during breaks. This will help to get out of gloom.

  2. Identify important for yourself subjects that are needed for entering a university or cause you maximum interest - and study them more deeply. Watch movies related to them, read additional literature, go to museums. Get information not for the exam, but for the knowledge itself!

  3. If necessary, start studying interesting subjects with a tutor or visit the sections.

  4. In other subjects your task is simply to get a normal mark. So do not go deep, behave quietly in the lesson, do not enrage the teacher and do your homework.

  5. Break large tasks into small ones and do them in parts, encouraging yourself for the successful completion of each stage. Sometimes it is the scope of the upcoming work that scares, that even hands fall. Moving in small steps, you can not give up!

  6. Participate in extracurricular activities such as a theater group, so that the school is not associated only with boredom.

  7. Look for like-minded people on your favorite hobbies. Communicating with them will support you and help you develop in important directions.

  8. If it is difficult to sit on lessons, think with your parents about an alternative. You can conclude an agreement with the school and go to home schooling or attend some of the subjects, and study the rest yourself and come to school to take exams. Explore this topic and potential opportunities. But the transition to this form of training will require you to work hard and concentrate at home!

I wish you to overcome boredom and enjoy life and knowledge!

“Goes to the board ...” Often at this moment something inside is compressed. And speaking to the whole class is the worst of nightmares. How to overcome fear by answering at the blackboard?

Sometimes even adults are scared to speak in public. They are also afraid to make a mistake with a large number of people or become the subject of ridicule. Also, listeners can rate you lower than they would like. Let's try to figure out what can be done with this.

  1. If you are afraid of a particular teacher, ask your parents for help and rehearse at home. Develop a clear response plan. Play the whole situation in detail - both as a teacher and in your own. Imagine the worst case scenario and how to avoid it.

  2. During the response, select one in the classroom who is definitely friendly and tell only him. It’s as if the rest are simply gone Ask your friend in advance as a reassuring listener.

  4. Observe those who are great at answering at the blackboard. How do they do it? You can ask them for advice. Imagine answering just as calmly and confidently. This will give you the mood you need.

  5. When you are called to the board, take a few deep breaths. Standing in front of the class, feel your feet touch the ground and give you support. For a moment, tighten your arms and legs, and then relax them. Answer yourself a few questions: “Who am I? What am I doing?" This will help to distract from the excitement and concentrate.

  6. Look for acting classes with your parents. There you will be taught to speak in front of an audience with pleasure, using the strongest points. For example, natural charm or a sense of humor.

  7. And finally - always carefully prepare for the lessons and honestly learn the material!

You will surely be able to confidently and calmly answer at the blackboard. Try different ways to overcome fear, and something will work!

How to remember everything

By   

Learn less and remember more? It is possible. You just need to learn how to use special techniques of mnemonics. And today we will share them with you!

Mnemonics - are rules and techniques that help you remember information better and faster, and also increase the amount of memory. Sounds tempting, right? Now let's try these tricks in action.

 

How to memorize numbers and dates

A special system will help here: in order to remember the date or house number, you need to make a phrase out of words, the number of letters in which is equal to the remembered numbers.

So. The founding date of Moscow is 1147. Make a four-word phrase where the first and second will have 1 letter, in the third - 4, and in the fourth - 7.

For example: - My brother and I are students - (11.4.7). It is much easier to recall such phrases in a history lesson than a difficult date.

 

How to memorize terms

Terms can become easy if you learn them with the help of harmonies. Many compound words have “analogs,” simple words that resemble them. For example, the term "spelling" can be remembered through "or pho (that) graphy" and the syntax as "syn [s | taxi".

 

How to remember foreign words

Here we use the method of associations: we find a word in Russian that resembles a foreign one and select a vivid image for it. For example, the word puddle (puddle) is consonant with the Russian word “fell”. Now remember the phrase "I fell into a puddle" - and vividly imagine how you actually fall into a puddle and how disgusting and wet you are! Now always, when you need to remember the English "puddle", this bright image will pop up in your head, and you will not forget it! Pick up such vivid associations for all the words that you can’t learn.

 

How to memorize word sequences

You can probably list all the colors of the rainbow, because you know the phrase "every hunter wants to know where the Pheasant sits." This is also one of the tricks of mnemonics! So you can memorize any sequence. To name the color order of the Russian flag at any time, learn the abbreviation KGB, which means "red, blue, white." You can also rhyme words and remember them as a rhyme. For example, 7 wonders of the world can be easily remembered with the help of a rhymed line: “Pyramid, Artemis, Mausoleum, Semiramis, Zeus at Olympia, Rhodes, and even the lighthouse of Faros.” Rhyme so any sets of words - and you will not forget them.

If you devote 10-15 minutes a day to the techniques of mnemonics, over time you will be able to complete any homework, where you need to remember something, once or twice. The main thing to remember: the more you train, the more you remember!
