12 academic to dos for the holiday season

12It’s almost Christmas and Hanukah time… And while many are thinking about presents and all the seasonal celebrations, we are also approaching the winter break time.  A time that students presume all that they have to do is sleep late and relax (which actually doesn’t sound all that bad does it?).

However – here are 12 things you can do to maximize your time over the break:

  1. Organize.  You can organize you notebooks and your papers.
  2. Start to prep for midterms (or finals if you have block scheduling)
  3. Read.  Pick a book(s) that you haven’t had time to get to and read it.
  4. Seniors – finish up any loose ends for college admissions
  5. Juniors – SAT / ACT prep.  take a block of time and complete a full test
  6. Sophomores/Juniors – visit a college(s)
  7. Stimulate your mind- Do a crossword puzzle or sudoko every day
  8. Learn 12 new words – build your erudite vocabulary
  9. Work ahead.  get a start on projects / book reports that are coming up
  10. Catch up on any missing / late work.  Don’t lose points!!
  11. Read Maximum Education (www.maximumeducation.net)
  12. Set your goals for 2017
