Four Troubles You Should Know To Avoid
- You Will Fall Behind-by not doing the evening work, you will get behind in the class. If the class, such as Geometry, requires for the work to be presented in a certain order for understanding future concepts, then you may have large gaps in important skills. It will be hard to move ahead to the next concept if you do have a gap or several gaps. If the teacher continues to assign work, and you are one or several assignments behind, you may never properly catch up in the class. Remember you will have new work that piles on top of this, as well as work from other subjects.
- You Will Make Lower Grades - you cannot skip the practices and reinforcements without affecting your final grades. To fail to do the work, will result in a decline in your grades. And while the act of learning goes far beyond a letter score, it is important to recognize and respect that the score is an indicator of your knowledge in that particular subject. You may even have to hire professional help to help you catch up in your work. This could be time consuming and expensive, but you will need a remedy in order to correct this bad situation.
- You Will Have Trouble Preparing for Evaluations - if you are missing nightly work assignments and then the time rolls around for an evaluation on a unit or chapter, you may be in trouble. The evaluation is a determination of what you know in the subject. Many academic subjects require the nightly drills for comprehension and skill mastery. By failing to do these tasks, you might be sabotaging your grade on exams and larger evaluations.
- You Will Have a Weak Subject Foundation - if you continuously skip work that the teacher assigns, you are creating a weak foundation. You may be able to move ahead to the next class, but the weakness may impact your score in that class as well. If you have been remiss in completing tasks in many or all of your subjects, then you may be headed for a repeat year or summer school. A weak foundation is a bad thing in the world of academics. I have seen children who coasted in their work year after year, and then have the whole mess catch up with them. It is not a pretty sight.
There are many reasons for you to always complete your academic work on time. All of these reasons are very impactful. However, the most important reasons are that you will fall behind in the subject, you will get lower scores and failing grades, you will have trouble preparing for evaluations, and you will have an overall weak subject foundation. Save yourself a lot of trouble and go ahead and finish all of your work in a timely fashion.
