Students need to Study
It is really, really important for students to study at least 10 minutes each night for each subject. It can be reading over notes, doing some practice problems, explaining to you what they did in that class and what they learned, finding an instructional video online...The possibilities are numerous. The point is...students need to study! Too many students are coming to school unprepared and their grades are reflecting this.
