Brushing Up on Your Study Skills

Are you having trouble studying for that big test? Do you go completely blank as soon as your teacher passes the test papers around? Maybe you just need to brush up on your study skills. Although there's no magic formula to get that A on your biology test, Kidzworld does have a bunch of helpful homework tips that'll send you on your way to acing your next big exam!

Study Tips - Roll Call

You are never going to do well on your exams if you never show up for class. Be sure to attend every class, even if your best friend isn't in the same math class as you. And, take advantage of any tutorials or extra help your teachers offer. When you're struggling with a subject, any extra help you can get can make a huge difference.

Study Tips - Keep a Routine

Set aside a specific time to do your homework and studying every day. Whether that's right after school or after supper, a set schedule can often help you focus a lot easier. Don't try to fit your homework around socializing with friends. Homework should be a priority.

Study Tips - Shhhh!

If you can't find a quiet place to focus on your homework at your house, why not head to the library? Be sure you have as little distraction as possible when studying. Avoid watching TV, talking on the phone or playing music that makes you want to dance around the living room while doing homework.

Study Tips - Be Inquisitive

If you find that having a friend study for a test with you helps the most, why not make flash cards or make mini quizzes for one another to answer. The key is to make use of your study time and not turn the get-together into a video game marathon or gossip session.

Study Tips - Write it Down

Keep all your notes from your classes and read them over, as well as your textbooks. Make note of things your teacher has said might be on your test so you can be sure to review it. If you're just reading straight from a textbook or novel for class, try reading aloud. Hearing yourself say it while you read often helps you to retain more of what you've read.

Study Tips - Ask For Help

If you are still struggling with forming good study habits, don't be afraid to talk to your teachers. Many schools have homework help available to you during lunch or after school. Your teachers may also be able to suggest tutors that you could work with.

In my opinion, cursing in general is pretty tasteless. It's not exactly a behavior to admire.  However, in regards to the question, I don't think people who are 13 and under should be cursing. Not to sound condescending to those who are younger than me, but my reasoning is, many people who are in that particular age group don't fully comprehend the weight expletives carry.  Here is an example: A mother is out running errands in heavy traffic. Her 6 year old son is seated in the back of the car.  As she's about to make a turn, another vehicle cuts her off. Irritated, she curses the offender under her breath, unaware that her son has heard her. Later, while in a check-out line at a supermarket, her son, growing restless, stomps his foot and yells the same curse. The six year old didn't understand what he was saying, he was repeating what he'd heard from his mother. He didn't understand that the word was inappropriate and potentially offensive.  The average 13 year old (or even a 10 year old, for that matter), however, would understand that it was inappropriate and that it was offensive.

I believe that it would be beneficial if we kinda cut down on the baby making. The more people on earth, that means that more resources are being used. In a way gays are doing you a favor. Odds are, early on, gays were most likely killed for being different. So it wasn't like they had to chance to evolve .   If gays/lesbians we made to have babies then gays would not even exist. Just because a century old book says that gays cant be married doesn't mean people are going to listen to it. Modify you bible to the now times. Rules change, so should your's. Interesting... And how do you suggest we do that? Prevent people from having children? Slowly dispatch of the current population? I'm sorry. Life is the most precious  gift. I don't believe we have the right take that away from another. *cough cough* Back to the main topic at hand... I agree that "there are plenty of people, gay and straight, that love each other." You're not wrong in that assumption. However, there are all kinds of love -though at the root core it comes with willing the good others. (We should "love one another as He has loved us.") But the attraction and desire to be with another as as man and wife can be one? That's called lust. As a Christian, I believe that such physicality should be reserved for marriage with the intention of bringing new life into the world.  Like any group seen as different, homosexuals have been persecuted (ex: WWII) -as they still are. But let's take a looksie back in the past, shall we? In some cultures such as the Roman? Homosexual relationships were actually encouraged. Specifically, male relationships -many, not all, between those of striking age differences. Now do you believe these were sought out for pleasure or out of love? Haha, actually? The Book's been around for well over a century now... Perhaps, maybe there just might be a sufficient reason as to why. Now, to change the rules? Sorry,  no can do. They aren't mine to alter,  though they're certainly mine to follow (;     Amen to that!
