I remind my students constantly that the most important thing is that they acquire knowledge during their time in my class. Actually, they should be acquiring knowledge the entire time they are in school. After all, the purpose of education is to…..acquire knowledge. I want you to think of the word ‘acquire’ as a method of storage. When you store something, you put it in a specific place so that you can access it at a later date. Storage is not a careless action either. It is very neat and specific. As a result, it is not hard to find things when you need them.
This is the way you need to think of the information that your teachers give you on a daily basis. It is up to you to find a way to store that information so that you don’t lose it. It is not a very good feeling when the test is in front of you and you can’t access the information you need. The good news is that this doesn’t have to happen to you. In order to store information, you need to …..STUDY. The more time you spend planning and studying, the better chance you will have on the test because you stored the information correctly. Think about it.
