High School Science:


How can I improve my grade??

  • Come Prepared! (Book, pen/pencil, notebook)
  • Use the schoology site/videos/extra practice to help guide you at home SEE BELOW for help!
  • Ask questions
  • Retake test/quizzes that you didn't understand (an AVERAGE will be earned for the score) but you need to study at least 1 hour outside of class and have filled out a study tracker sheet and summary, AND it needs to be done within FIVE SCHOOL DAYS of the test/quiz you'd like to retake
  • Do your homework--don't just copy--that's not helping you learn at all.
  • Ask a classmate to help explain it to you.
  • Don't wait to get help! Come in before school, after school or during Mrs. Nelson's lunch or prep.
  • Study a little at a time--avoid cramming
  • Everyone learns DIFFERENTLY, you may learn quicker than others, slower than others but that's okay--It's more important you discover what WORKS FOR YOU.

All classes will use schoology.  Here are some helpful things with schoology
