Thanksgiving break acts as a reminder of the semester’s impending close. To ensure that the final weeks of class are as stress-free as possible, you can start being proactive now. Make the upcoming weeks and months much more enjoyable by taking the following steps:While you might consider roaming the campus yourself, you are likely to miss out on ample information that only a tour guide can supply.Refer to your course syllabi to get a feel for the percentage breakdown; most of the time, high school teachers calculate final grades based on homework, participation, attendance, and tests/quizzes. Projects and lab reports may be factored in as well, depending on the type of class it is. Be sure to talk to your teachers if you feel in the dark about grading procedures. By asking questions, you can get a sense of how well you must perform in the remaining weeks in order to receive a certain grade. Use your current average to motivate yourself to do better.
