There aren’t too many teenagers out there who enjoy doing homework. Maybe you dread sitting down to do those United States History essays. Or maybe you are the exception - maybe you don’t mind it. But no matter who you are, most students can agree that they wish that they had less homework. Wouldn’t it be nice, to cut the four hours a night of homework you do down to three? Or maybe two hours to one? You could use that time to call your best friend on the phone, watch your favorite television show, or even better yet, get a full night of sleep for the first time in six months.
One way you can accomplish your homework objectives is to map out your homework schedule.
You wouldn’t go on a cross country road trip without a map or a GPS, and you certainly shouldn’t go into your study schedule without knowing what you’re doing. Start by making a list of all the assignments and studying that you have to do, then order them. It’s usually best to begin with the subjects you like the least or find the most challenging, because you’ll have the most energy to get them done. It will also be nice to have your easiest or favorite subjects at the end, as something to look forward to.
