Learning stuff that isnt included in your classes can help you understand the information you do cover a lot better and it can also really impress your teacher. Pursuing information in a way that follows your interests can also help you stay focused in class. Look for more ways to learn about all of the subjects you study and youll find that all of school is more interesting and that youre more and more successful.For example, if youre studying American history, you can watch documentaries online to learn even more about the era youre learning about. You can learn about stuff using books you get from your local library but you can also learn a lot online. While Wikipedia isnt always right, its usually pretty good. You can also find documentaries and educational videos on Youtube, like the popular shows Crash Course and TedTalks.Learn when school is out of session too. Keep learning during the summer, on the weekends, and start preparing for your next year of school as early as you can by finding out what kind of stuff youll study. As for the summers, just reviewing the information you already learned for just two or three hours three or four times over the course of the whole summer can help make sure that youre ready when the school year starts.
