Review your notes from class daily.2. Complete your course text reading in advance.3. Use class time to ask lots of questions and complete work.4. Homework should be routine: try to complete work at the same time in the same place with little distraction.5. Revise, revise, revise your written assignments: this is key to learning that writing is a PROCESS.6. Ask for extra help.7. Reread scenes from the Shakespearean play we are studying each day. This helps in your knowledge of the play since it is complex. Use an English translation of the play if necessary.8. Use an agenda, calendar, binder with dividers... BE ORGANIZED!9. Always use textual examples from the short story, poem, novel, play, article, etc. when making notes and answering questions. This will ensure textual specificity.10.
