HOW TO BE A GOOD STUDENT Being a good student is everyone‟s hope but only a few students do the way how to be a good student. Every student knows what should he do to become a good student but they usually forget to try it even don‟t want to do it because of laziness. I will tell you some ways to be be a good student. The first is associating with clever students. Associating with clever students can help you very much. You can share your opinion to them, discuss about your academic, ask for explanation about something that you don‟t understand, and many others. Indeed, you can you can imitate the way they study. Maybe, one of them has a special habit in studying which is appropriate with you. Joining many social activities in campus is the second. There are many social activities in campus that you can join. They give you many experiences relating to social which you will not get in the class. Remember that after you graduate from this university you will face the social environment. How can you face it without any experiences before? By joining social activities early, I suppose it can help you when interacting with society. The last is keeping on studying your field of study. Never waste your time just to do useless things. Make sure that you study your major in a day. You must be responsible with your major after graduating from this university. It‟s a shame when you graduate the university, you don‟t master your own subject. There many things to do to become a good student; i think these three ways can represent them all.

HOW TO BE A GOOD STUDENT Preface It is important that every student, whether they are in elementary school ,high school or college; be aware of the basics of being a good student. These skills, of doing well in school, can be carried over to many other aspects of life. This book is intended for those who are looking for some tips on improving their abilities, as a student and as a person. Implementing some of these ideas into academic life will surely help a student perform better in the classroom. Hopefully everyone reading this work will learn something that they can do to become a better student and be more successful. Qualities of a good student Today‟s students are tomorrow‟s leaders. The qualities of the student are of great impact to determine the student's bright future and career. So, who is a good student? What are the qualities of a good student? Historically, the term „student‟ refers to anyone who learns something. However, the recent definition of a “student” is mostly used to refer to anyone who attends school, college, or university. Again, what are the good qualities of a student? The list below shows the qualities of a good student. 1. Attitude: Basically, a good student possesses the ability and willingness to learn new subjects even if the subjects are not interesting. 2. Academic skills: Acquiring academic skills is the most important quality of a good student. Ability to read comprehensively, to write effectively, to speak fluently, and to communicate clearly are the key areas in which a student must be proficient. Having a good command in all these areas will make a student to shine in the class. 3. Ability: A good student has the ability to apply the results of his or her learning into a creative way and achieve the goals. 4. Perceptiveness: How well a student can interpret and perceive meanings from a conversation greatly determines the quality of a student. A good student always perceives right meaning from conversations, but an average student often misunderstands the original thoughts of a speaker or writer and derives a wrong conclusion. 5. Self-Discipline: Discipline in managing the time is an important factor that every good student must possess. Often delaying the tasks, such as writing assignments, reading text books, etc, may negatively impact the ability of a student to achieve the goals. 6. Understanding rather than memorizing concepts: Resolving any doubts by asking about them on the spot is always a good thing. Several surveys suggest students must understand the concepts rather than just memorize them. The memorized facts and theories will stay in student's memory until they leave school, college, or university.

Once out of school, the students will totally forget the core concepts that they had learnt. Therefore, it is essential for a good student to understand the concepts. To do: comparison:student should have to compare with all students and read. behavior:student should have to know how to behave with his or her mates,teachers,parents and elders.

[edit] Chapter 1 - Motivation To become a good student, you need to get motivated! Motivation can come from seeing the situation of many poor children around the world who are not lucky enough to get a proper education. This is a good thing to keep in mind when you find yourself not wanting to attend class or study at home. Another reason to get motivated to study is that you will enjoy a better quality of life as an educated person. All you need is confidence! For that, one need to feel that we are enjoying and bettering themselves, study can be looked as a competition and divided as a team task. You should avoid forcing yourself to study, as this will make learning a chore and you will not feel like even opening your books. You may have many academically good students in your courses, try becoming friends with them (or encourage your fellow students to be better), and you'll be immersed in an academic environment which will help you feel motivated! Note: It must be pointed out that methods of evaluation may at times foster individualism and negative competition, preventing others to succeed will guarantee a greater recognition to those who do, sad but true. Life in most places is setup as a competition for scarcer opportunities. Especially in higher education, keeping the numbers and grades of competitors down has drastic implication for future opportunities. This is also one reason why some governments limit the availability of courses (how demographics and national interests influence specific fields of study) and interest groups lobby hard to increase requirements in the courses and to new entries in the job market.

[edit] Chapter 2 - Concentration On Studies Concentration follows eagerness. This section provides you with the basics of "Concentration" and also provides you with advice as to how to get aroused with concentration. You need to pay attention in a class. Don't start chatting with your peers/friends when the teacher turns their back to you. Even better, don't associate with distracting people. You should realize that the people in your class play an important role in how everybody progresses. However, if

you are a good student you will do better and achieve your goals. Your friends will be there for you at that time, if they are trustful and of a good reputation. At home, study and do your homework in a place that doesn't make you sleepy. It is advisable to have a dedicated study table or desk. Don't do your study work on the bed or in front of the TV, radio, stereo, etc. That would be pointless because you are meant to be thinking about your studies. If you feel distracted, take a short break of 15 minutes or less; maybe try to read an unrelated story book. But don't start sticking to the book if the time limit is over. Bookmark the page and then you can read it later on. You should also have a daily routine/timetable to guide you, but you must follow it through. It might be difficult to begin with, but hard beginnings make good endings. Avoid conflicts; this will move your attention from listening to what your teacher says! "Honored zeros are better than copied hundreds". Avoid cheating. Be honest with yourself and others about what you have learned; if you don't know the answer leave it. Use it as a way to improve your knowledge of the subject. Remember, study well now, and you will have the chance to have fun after you achieve your goals!

[edit] Chapter 3 - Behavior ( Hardstyle Behavior) One of the main things that decides a person's or child's future is their behavior. Learning textbooks and achieving 100% is not enough. People should think that you are the only allrounder that has good manners. Obey your elders, don't bully your classmates at school. Remember, try imagining yourself in the other person's situation, and you'll know how much you hurt them with your actions. Say hello to your teachers and schoolmates when you see them, people will appreciate your friendliness and be friendly in return. Use good manners in class. Raise your hand, don't interrupt if someone is speaking, and if you don't have a nice thing to say, then don't say anything at all. Above all, try helping your friends in any situation and you'll be remembered as one of the best friends at school! Don't just do it for a good reputation, but for a good future and for yourself. You should also know that words from your mouth are enough to break relationships (or worse) so don't utter foul, discouraging, or insulting words. If someone is being rude, don't encourage them by laughing because that only makes them continue in their bad behavior. Don't take this as a lecture, but as a guideline! Behavior should be first and then comes academics. Even if you aren't good at school, you'll be famous for your behavior, and good friends are truly worth more than gold. Your behaviour should be such in a way that it should impress others.

[edit] Chapter 4 - Management

This is one of the many questions that children ask their teachers, "Ma'am, I can't study!". Let's ponder on these things : Are you devoted to studying? Are you just studying for your parents? Are you just cheating in exams for getting good grades and marks? The list goes on. First of all, as mentioned above, study somewhere that has a basic study table. Don't study or read in dim light. If you become bored on learning one subject, study something else that interests you a lot. You must always find alternatives as you go! We all know the saying,"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy". Yes, studying all night and not playing just stresses you on work and you'll forget everything the next morning. Play out for about 2 hours or so. It will be pleasant if you go out to play around in the evening, say 5 pm in the evening. This energizes you and gives you extra strength for everything you do. Make a timetable. And that is all what this section is about. Arrange the time-table with the subjects that are tough for you in the first column. Then put a break column after every 2 subjects so you don't get strained. Study on each subject for about 1 hour. Make small pauses of 10-15 minutes in between. You'll get refreshed. Use the time for something that takes your mind on the effort done, have a snack. Try getting a good sleep. Humans are supposed to get 7 - 10 hours sleep (it goes down with age). If you don't get enough sleep, that will result in sluggishness, memory deficiency and your mind will be filled with the crave for the missing rest.

[edit] Chapter 5 - Helping Others And Advising Apart from improving yourself, try spreading your skills among others. This is the section that provides you with all the things necessary in sharing your skills. Co-operation is helping each other out so everyone benefits, it's the opposite of competing, where everyone wants to win for themselves. Most learning is done with the help of others, so learning to cooperate is a valuable skill for anyone. Study partners are a wonderful tool. They save time and they help reinforce what you have learned. Divide a reading assignment in half. Study your section using any and all note taking strategies you have (e.g., Venn diagrams, outlines, note cards, coloured highlighters). When you both have an understanding of your readings, take turns 'teaching/explaining' it to the other person. As you adjust your explanation to your partner, you will reinforce the concept for yourself. It works because as you think about how to explain the topic, you must understand it first! Teachers are like students who have a bit extra knowledge. To gain this knowledge visit libraries to read extra books. If you are confused by a book you are reading, ask your teacher. It really helps.

[edit] Conclusion You need to be successful in all classes and not mess about talking to friends and keep to the school rules. You can achieve things by setting targets for yourself and working towards them. Nobody is perfect in every subject. You have strengths and weaknesses that you have to accept.

As long as you try hard every day, you will be successful. Sometimes success is just going to bed at night knowing you did the very best you could do. That's all anyone can ask of you.

How to be a goo singer

Instructions 1. o

1 Enunciate your words clearly so that what you sing is understandable. For this, you need practice. First, find a page in a book to read aloud. Watch your mouth move in a mirror. Read as you normally would at first, but as you continue down the page, start reading more slowly. Pay close attention to each syllable as you enunciate it. Pay close attention to the way your mouth moves as you slowly and clearly enunciate your words. Once you have read aloud to yourself, watch yourself in the mirror as you say tongue twisters, clearly enunciating every syllable: (1) Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. 2) Black socks, they never get dirty, the longer you wear them the stronger they get. Some day, I think I shall launder them, something keeps telling me don't do it yet. Not yet. Not yet. 3) She sells seashells at the seashore. Harsh consonant sounds while enunciating, such as a hissing "s" or a "t" that sounds like spitting, are common. Make sure you enunciate them anyway.


2 Practice actual singing in front of a mirror. The best way to start is by singing the vowels A, E, I, O and U. Each vowel needs a different mouth configuration, which will help you learn mouth control and clarity of sound. Begin with A by opening your mouth and pulling back the sides of your mouth into what might feel like a grimace. Sing "A" for five counts; then close your mouth a little more for "E." For "I," make a fist and make your mouth approximately the size of your fist, a little less of a smile, but wider than A and E.

For "O," make a perfect "O" shape with your mouth, and for "U," pucker your lips as you sing. o

3 Breathe when you sing. Most people have learned to breathe shallowly, but if you want to learn to sing, you must learn to support your sound with deep belly breaths. To learn how to breathe, place your hands on your belly and inhale through your nose. Imagine breathing deeply into your stomach. Feel it rise. This is how you should breathe when singing. Practice inhaling for five counts and exhaling for five counts.


4 Develop your ear, or ability to retain and accurately reproduce music or notes that you have heard, by playing a random note on a piano or electronic keyboard, waiting about 3 seconds, then reproducing the note with your voice. Check for accuracy by replaying the note as you're singing it. Try this exercise with random notes that you can easily sing without straining your voice.


5 Sing a song now that you have enunciation and breathing down. Pop in your favorite CD or tape that you want to sing to, and listen to it a few times to familiarize yourself with the words, tonality and harmony/melody of the song. When you feel comfortable enough, belt it out. Remember, practice makes perfect, so practice the steps, and you'll soon be singing with aplomb.

Practice...and some natural talent

Consider that the professionals have a studio to even them out. :)

You do have to have a concept of pitch and tone, as well as a healthy strong voice in order to sing well. To truly master what you have takes practice--daily practice. And I don't mean the kind in the shower.

If you're looking to improve your voice here's two ways:

1) Join a church choir. It's regular exercise and gets you in a group of singers of various ability levels. You'll be able to learn how to match pitch. It's a good confidence builder to work with a group if you're just starting out.

2) Take voice lessons. At one point, in high school, I had choir five times a week and private lessons twice a week. In private lessons you can nail down your "style." I can sing some bluesy things and straight Broadway. I can't do anything too scat-jazz or pop. I just can't. It doesn't flow from me.

That "ringing" i think you're talking about is what's called "vibrato"--literally, the vocal vibrations. You have to practice to learn how to control them. In some cases, without it you sound flat. In others, if you have too much you sound like a goat. (And I remember there was a girl in choir we did call The Goat because her vibrato was INTENSE.)

Again, taking a voice class will help you with that. It takes practice and discipline both in lessons/practice and out. My vocal teacher made me a warm-up tape to practice at home. A good vocal coach will also teach you how to breathe. It sounds silly, but too many singers sing from their chest (lungs) instead of from the gut (diaphragm) and their voices sound weak and unsupported. Learn the difference between your "head" voice and your "chest" voice. :)

And good singers take care of their voices: Easy on the caffiene, no smoking, no screaming. Sources: Retired show choir dork :) HaleyBob 62 months ago

Well, while you...

can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear--unless someone is "tone deaf" (ie, not able to determine the difference between pitches) with work and development, improvements can be made.

  

The person must work to develop his or her EAR--to listen accurately and to match hearing to vocalization. The person must work to strengthen and develop tone, range and pitch accuracy. The person must work to strengthen and develop the physio-mechanical instrumentation that supports the voice--ie--they must learn to BREATHE, control the breath, and learn to use breath and diaphragm muscles, and the "mask" portion of the face--the mouth and throat and tongue and nasal passages--the whole phyical apparatus--to support the voice. And then, for success--depending on what you define as success--working on style, presence, presentation--can be a critical factor.

Work on these areas will produce vocal improvement, sometimes massive improvement.

And sometimes? It's just what a bunch of people decide they like. Really! Listen to Bob DYlan sing! The man does NOT have one of the "most beautiful" voices--however, he's a hellaciously great songwriter, and he's COMPELLING. That's something you can't just teach--a bunch of that has to be there to begin with, along with the drive to take it further. You've got to care enough about it to put in the work. You've got to practice, and practice, and practice. And that's the hard part.

Classroom Management

1. 1 Set the example. Remember that you are the teacher. It is important for you to be like a "superhero" figure in their eyes. Remember that your students look up to you and will thus try to mimic your dispositions. If you are rude or inappropriate, they will have an inappropriate model for their behavior. It is vital that students see you as a person with confidence, so that they follow your lead, and feel comfortable trusting you. Students, of all ages, need someone they can lean on, look up to, and be able to trust. Ads by Google

2. 2 Have well-defined consequences. Set specific consequences for breaking the rules. Decide what those consequences are and then implement them consistently. Your consequences should follow a procedure that starts with a non-verbal signal (such as just looking at the student), to a verbal signal (asking the student to please stop talking), to a verbal warning (if this continues there will be consequences), to the implementation of the consequence. The consequences are up to you and depend on the program of the school. Many schools have a detention system (students do despise detentions), or perhaps writing lines, or sitting away from other students.

3. 3 Be compassionate. Great educators form strong relationships with their students and show that they care about them as people. They are warm, accessible, enthusiastic and caring. Be open to staying at school afterhours to help students or get involved in school-wide committees and activities, and they demonstrate a commitment to the school.

4. 4

Set some ground rules. You should have 3-5 rules that the students know about. These are the rules that, when broken, are subject to the consequence scheme outlined above. Try allowing the class to suggest the ground rules: have a class discussion and write ideas, it makes the class feel they are listened to and that you care about their opinions and input while also setting some groundwork that they will feel loyal to because they've made it. Act as a mediator to make sure that the rules decided upon are appropriate. Some may be, for instance, be quiet when the teacher is talking, respect each other, and finish the homework and classwork.

Lesson Planning

1. 1 Have an objective. When you are planning a lesson, the most vital part is the objective. What do you want your students to take away from the lesson? If the objective is powerful, deep, and reflects what you really want students to learn, it will be reflected in the lesson.

2. 2 Have a solid plan for your lessons. Each and every lesson should be divided into three simple parts that reflect your objective.

o o o

First should be the "lecture" part of the lesson. This is where you teach something new to the class (of course allowing for questions or comments when applicable). Dedicate the second part of class to something that involves a collective group work element where students can work with whoever they want. Near the end of this part, you can have a discussion session where groups voice their findings/opinions, and give marks for adequate participation. The final part of every lesson should be where the students return to their seats and work QUIETLY on one final task, such as answering specific questions written on the board, or drawing a picture related to something they learned that lesson. The students should only talk to you (if they have a question about what/how to do it) or the person sitting directly next to them. This is the wind-down part where students get a chance to work on and understand the material on their own.

3. 3 Assign relevant homework. Rather than assigning something different every night, it is wise to assign one or two more substantial assignments on Monday and then collect these assignments on Friday.

4. 4

Consider giving quizzes. You may want to have a quiz every Friday to assess how well the students are grasping the material. You can judge how well you are teaching by how well the majority of your students perform on the quizzes.

Being a manager in any industry can be a fulfilling job, but it can also be a difficult one. You will need to find the right balance of friendliness and authority. You will need to create a good team atmosphere whilst achieving the bigger goals. So how do you strike that balance?

1. Do Your Job First and foremost do your own job. Managing people isn‟t an excuse to let them do the work whilst you look on. Of course, sometimes your job may involve being more strategic but your staff will respect you for doing what needs to be done and being willing to pitch in like everyone else at times. Many of us have had managers who use their role as an excuse to do less or attend more meetings. Get the balance right and earn respect from your staff.

2. Acknowledge The Positive See the positives in your staff and their work. Don‟t be one of those bosses who only sees what‟s missing rather than what‟s been achieved. It is demoralizing for staff to have someone only see what they have done „wrong‟. Positivity breeds positivity. Genuine and meaningful praise goes a long way. If this is difficult for you, get in the habit of noting down positive things you notice about how your staff work. Give feedback regularly and let them know that you see the good work they do.

Don’t Be Afraid to Manage Things don‟t always go smoothly in any workplace. You are a manager, so you must be willing to manage. Some people find it hard to set boundaries or give feedback but it is important to get over that hurdle. If you need some help with this don‟t be afraid to ask your own boss for help or request training. It doesn‟t come naturally to everyone. You can make a work situation worse by not being clear with staff if you are hesitant about

managing. People appreciate genuine leadership. Practice managing and making the tough decisions. These things get easier with practice but people will appreciate knowing where you stand and any changes they need to make.

3. Be Vulnerable If you make a mistake, be big about it and apologize. It can be scary and seem like you are making yourself vulnerable, but your staff will appreciate your honesty. No one expects a manager to be super human. Everyone likes someone who takes responsibility for your actions. Being honest will help you create a culture of honesty.

4. Be Real With People The way we work is changing. You don‟t have to be superhuman or untouchable. Be the real human being that you are. Let people at work know about your life and find out about others. If you let people know the “real you” it is much easier than having different personalities for your work and home life. Communicate Let your staff know what‟s going on behind the scenes, as appropriate. If something will affect a member of staff, make sure they are included in the communication. This doesn‟t mean you have to let your staff know everything. Sometimes keeping communications back until the correct time can save panic and needless worrying. Communicate appropriately and consistently but be aware of how communication (or lack of it) can affect your staff.

5. Lead By Example If you want your staff to behave in a certain way (professional, good team players), then lead by example. It is not fair to expect your staff to do something if you are not doing it yourself.

6. Be Self Aware Be aware of your moods and how you communicate. You may not realise how much of an impact you have on your team as a manager. You may know you are in a bad mood

about the dog chewing your shoes this morning but staff may feel that they have done something wrong if they don‟t know this! Be aware of how and what you communicate. Your team will pick up on it.

7. Have Fun Having fun at work can help make the work easier for everyone, forge positive relationships and strengthen your team. There is usually room for more fun in any work environment, but if the nature of your work makes that difficult, be sure to schedule fun activities when you can. Meeting for lunch or drinks after work can help build relationships and help your team to see you and each other in a new light. If you create a positive work atmosphere it also becomes easier to deal with challenges as they arise.

8. Trust Yourself At the end of the day, there is no one right way to be a manager. Trust yourself and learn through your mistakes. Managing others is a great way to develop and enhance your leadership skills and create a positive work experience for yourself and others.
