1) USE A PLANNER
Using a planner seriously helps so much because you can keep track of what homework you have and your tests coming up. You can also use stickers and washi tape to make it more festive. I have some templates for you guys to check out on my planner board on my Pinterest account.

2) HOW TO HIGHLIGHT
Color code everything!
Pink - titles and headlines
Blue - for terminology and vocab
Green - definitions and explanations of terminology (green explains blue)
Orange - examples of the term
Yellow - other
Here's how I color code:
Pink - dates
Blue - names
Green - definitions
Orange - vocab (ties into green)
Yellow - locations
Purple - other/information
You can also buy highlighters like the picture below and label them:
3) ASK QUESTIONS
If you don't understand something in class, do not be afraid to ask the teacher about it, even if everybody else knows it. In the end, you will end up getting a really great grade on your assessment.
4) KEEP A HOMEWORK FOLDER
When you keep a homework folder, all of your homework is in one place, and in one pocket you can keep your homework assignments, and on the other pocket, you can put your homework assignments that you have to turn in.
I will always bring some hot drink to school to wake me up in the morning, and I usually like to take notes only including dates, names, times, definitions, and anything else that my teacher recommends. I always ask questions to verify something, and when I get home, the first thing I do is finish my homework because when I procrastinate, it seriously holds me back in my classes.
