This phrase can be used for many things in our lives, but lets apply it to studying. Lets get SMARTer
To start off you need a vision.
A vision is an idea of what you see your self doing in the class. For
example, you may see yourself passing the course, or maybe getting a
'B', or maybe making a grade to make it into the National Honor
Society, or maybe even getting an 'A'. Whatever your vision is write it
down, post it somewhere that you will look at daily and work towards
How can you reach your vision?
Set some SMART Goals for yourself. These goals will be the small steps you take to reach your vision.your goals should be:
Specific- Who? What? Where? Measurable- How will the goal be measured? Practice Test? Quiz? Homework? Completeness? Accuracy? Attainable- Is the goal realistic, yet challenging? Relevant- Is the goal consistent with other goals established and fits with your immediate and long-range vision? Timely- Is it trackable and allows for monitoring of progress? Will it get you you to the level you want to be at in time?
Working towards these goals daily will help make your vision come true.
I have a vision of getting an 80
in the class. Therefore I will do my homework every night and study two
days before every test. I will measure how I am doing by checking my
homework every day for correctness and evaluating myself with the
practice test. I earned an 84 in my last class so an 80 in this one
should be attainable. This goal is relevant because if I want to
advance to higher level classes I should plan on at least getting an 80
in this class. If I follow the plan above, I will reach this goal
before my tests. By doing this I will succeed at my test and therefore
succeed at my class.
