Tips for students and teachers to beat the mid-year slump

Stepping outside your comfort zone can make school seem like a less humdrum place. Consider signing up for after-school activities, gearing up with the latest learning technology or start a study group.

Whether you’re a teacher or a student, staying motivated for the rest of the school year can be a challenge. But, what happens in the classroom counts long after the school year is new.

Here are some great ways to make the grade, all year long.

Try new things

Stepping outside your comfort zone can make school seem like a less humdrum place. Consider signing up for after-school activities you hadn’t previously considered.

Whether it’s the school play, yearbook or intramural soccer, challenging yourself in new ways can have an overall motivational effect that can translate to the classroom, and you may just discover previously untapped skills and passions.

Get new tech gear

Teachers and students alike can give their school year a boost by gearing up with new technology that aids their educational efforts.

If you’re in a numbers slump, consider revolutionizing math class and test prep with a new graphing calculator that features additional capabilities. With the advanced features of a next-generation graphing calculator, students may find it easier to grasp complex math concepts.

Find some pals

Make studying a more cooperative venture by forming a study group where everyone stands to benefit. Those who grasped the material fullest can explain it to others, thereby reinforcing the concepts for themselves, too.

Make sessions fun by rotating who hosts and providing healthy snacks. Afterwards, treat yourselves to a fun activity like a movie.

With new gear, ambitions and study habits, you can make the rest of the year count.
