How to Organize Homework: Step by step

By AK, 6 December

The integral quality of professionals is the ability to rationally spend their time, to effectively organize their work, the ability to meet the execution of work in a certain time frame. A student who does not know methods of personal time organizing cannot either become a full-fledged specialist or to study fully.

The development of approaches in the organization of time has resulted in the formation of a system of techniques called by the term “time management”.

If you ask yourself what you want to achieve in life, who you want to become in 10 years and realize that your goal is success, you cannot do without competent time management. Even now, at that stage, when all life is ahead and you can learn to live it competently.

There are certain rules without which proper planning of study time is impossible, including the rules for organizing and performing homework. The Pro-Papers experts sampled the most effective of them.

So, in order to properly allocate time for doing homework, in order to make assignments easier and faster, preparing should begin in class.

1 Lectures and seminars

First, you need to go to lectures and seminars. Besides the fact that the student will miss the material, the more he/she misses, the more he/she wants to miss.

2Even if a lecture is boring

Keep notes at lectures and seminars. Even if a lecture is boring, you still need it. It is useful to keep abstracts in different colors of pens and markers, to make notes, if somewhere in the course of a lecture it is not clear and it is impossible to clarify right away - mark it to return to this question. If you missed a couple, it is very useful to rewrite (with your hands to remember and not just scan, as some do) someone else’s outline, and it is advisable to take it from a person who takes notes well.

3 Alternative presentation of a material

If you still have questions after a lecture, for example, because some part of a material still remains incomprehensible to you, then it is very useful to come up with these questions to a lecturer. Typically, teachers are happy to answer questions and in other words, can explain something specifically for you (or at least tell you where you can read an alternative presentation of a material).

4Educational material

Homework must be done on the day it is received. Any material learned in class is quickly forgotten. In the first hours after memorizing fresh material, the fullness of memorization rapidly falls down. During the first 10 hours after memorization, 65% of the received information disappears. Further, the intensity of forgetting decreases and by the end of the second day, another 10% of information disappears. Thus, in two days only 25% of what is remembered remains in the person’s memory. Therefore, an educational material, fixed on the day of his perception, remains in memory longer.

5Achievable stage

Before you start homework, make yourself a detailed list of tasks. If this is a big, difficult task, break it into subtasks. Ensure that the seemingly terrible task is divided into paragraphs, each of which is a small, uncomplicated, achievable stage on the path to the implementation of the planned one.

6Material fixing

Written assignments fulfillment should begin with a repetition of theoretical material, i.e. from work on a textbook. First, you should do it in order to make it easier to find a way to solve written assignments and justify your choice. Secondly, the repetition of the material as a result of oral and written work increases the strength of the material fixing.

7Working with a textbook

When working with a textbook, the order of student actions is as follows:

Recall what was left in the memory of the lesson (from the notes in the notebook and the drawings in the textbook)

Read the paragraph, highlighting the main idea of the text, and read the highlighted rules;

Try to reproduce the material (retell out loud or silently, make a plan of the reading, answer the questions of the textbook);

In case of difficulties, it is necessary to read through the textbook once again and achieve free reproduction of the material.

8Complex material

Complex material (text) should be divided into several semantic units. If the text is very large and complex, then each part must be taught and reproduced separately. At the same time between each of the parts it is desirable to arrange a short rest (5-10 min).

9Completing the tasks

Homework is best done in just a few cycles. This means that after completing the tasks in all subjects it is necessary to take a break for 10-15 minutes, and after that, to repeat the completed tasks, reproducing them in the same sequence as the first time.

10Moral satisfaction

Line through the completed tasks. This will bring you not only a sense of moral satisfaction, but also clearly show how close the final is.

11Set priorities

In order to understand where to start, you need to highlight the most important and urgent things and begin to implement your plans with them. At first, written assignments should be made and then oral, we must begin with easy assignments, gradually complicating them.

12It is important to allocate time correctly:

At one time you should work on tasks, let it be an hour or two, the rest of the time you can rest. This will not allow you to overwork and help not to discourage the desire to learn. A habit will be worked out and tasks will become easier.

13It is important to have a rest too!

And preferably you should rest in the fresh air. Be sure to take breaks. The change of physical and mental activity will help you switch, tune in to the positive and gain strength.

14Do not postpone the case for later!

At some point you will understand that this snowball will not stop. And so, it did not crush you, do things on time. This is the case when it is easier to prevent the situation.
