HOW TO PREPARE FOR FINALS
1) Prepare early.
     Teachers usually give students study guides or worksheets to help organize materials. Some of these can be found on the classroom's website.

2) Get Organized.
     Once you have decided what you need to review, find old homework assignments or class notes that will help you create a summary of the topic. Go through your Cornell Notes and find examples your need to review or key questions that will help you study.

3) Plan Your Time.
     Reviewing a little bit of each subject per day helps with remembering the material better than reviewing only the subject of the final the night before.

4) Get Help!
     Don't hesitate to ask teachers, family or even peers review with you topics that you are struggling with.

5) Work Slowly.
     When it comes to the test day, don't rush through your test questions. Read each one carefully and check the directions. If one question is really stumping you, move onto the next one and come back to that one question (just check your bubble sheet to make sure you are on the right number).

6) Know Your Test.
     Will your test be multiple choice, matching, essay, or true/false questions? It is important to plan by asking your teachers what type of questions are on your test.


Some strategies for studying...
FLASHCARDS
VOCABULARY BOOKMARKS
DRAW PICTURES or CREATE DIAGRAMS
WRITE A SUMMARY

Most importantly, interact with your notes and review daily. Create questions, circle key words, underline main ideas and create summaries.

 
GET INVOLVED!
South has a goal this year to get every student involved in an extra curricular activity. At South we have options for everyone and are always wanting more ideas. Currently we have yearly sports and 17 clubs or organizations to chose from. If you are interested in more information, check out our clubs bio pages HERE
