Start reading for comprehension with less distractions (phone off, music low, etc.).
Use a highlighter when possible to get the point of each paragraph.
If you can't highlight, then write a quick note/term or phrase from each on a legal pad, or in a spiral notebook. You can be sure that 'if it is written' it has a point. (works with academic texts, not novels)
Every chapter, create an outline.
Answer any questions that you find in the books.
Read or at least skim the vocabulary in 'glossary ' in the back of your books.
Read for pleasure, 15 - 30 min. per day (magazines, books or newspapers)
Read for knowledge 15-30 minutes daily, a good newspaper starting on page 1!
Pressed for time? - read the Sunday paper every week
Keep up with news-local, national and global. The world will affect your future occupation, be prepared to become a working part of it.
Well now that the WW3 scare is over, will Obama and Boehner get busy writing a higher debt limit?
Obama works what his conscience dictate whether John gets on his way or not.
Whast do I need to know about swimming 2-a-day's?
Look, I swim doubles three, sometimes four, days a week. My coach says it's mandatory to come at least three times a week unless you have a legit excuse. I'm taking three AP classes and one Honors class.
I don't know about your practice. For my practice, (I'm in the National group, FYI) the majority of morning practices is dry land. Arguably, dry land is easier than swimming. For the afternoon, it's all swimming, and it's usually really hard. Three hour practices aren't fun.
How do you keep up with schoolwork? Here's my busy school schedule:
Junior in high school
1) AP Calculus BC
2) Honors English 5/6
3) AP US History
4) Leadership (Junior Class Vice President)
5) Spanish 3/4
6) Jazz Band
7) AP Physics
I do my work right after I get home, with some procrastination, of course. I never practice for band. I do my Calculus homework in the car (Since I drive myself to school, I have to do all my work once I park). I do my English homework in math. It's a really bad habit. I wouldn't recommend it. That's the main reason why I have a B in Calculus. And since I'm in Leadership and one of the leading roles, I have to show up for a lot of after school stuff.
It will be exhausting at first. The first few days I did it, I would always fall asleep in class. You'll get used to it. BTW, waking up at 4:30 isn't fun either.
Will it benefit you? Yes. More exercise is better. However, you need to keep a schedule (Granted, I don't even have a schedule).
During high school season, my friend does triples over the spring break. He does mornings at club (4:45 AM to 6 AM), goes to high school (8 AM to 9:30 AM), and then back to club (3:30 PM to 6:30 PM).
