When you miss class, you usually miss the assignments that teachers leave and expect you to present them later. After reading this article you won't worry about it anymore, it will be a piece of cake!
Method 1 of 2: General Help
Step 1. Plan ahead
If you know that you will be away for a long time, present your books and assignments in advance if possible. This way, you will have nothing to worry about when you return.
Step 2. Catch up on assignments right away
If you don't, then you will forget to do it. If your school or class has a homework upload website, check it out to see what you've missed. If possible, ask a friend to write down all the tasks for you.
Step 3. Talk to your teacher
Talk to your teacher (s) about assignments that you have not submitted, as sometimes they expect you to do it and sometimes (if it is a small assignment, for example), you will not have to. If you have multiple teachers, it is much better to talk to each of them, as they all have different expectations. For example, some teachers will give you as many days as you have been absent to present your assignments, but others will not.
Step 4. Order all your homework, from most to least important
Start by classifying your assignment, from the longest to the shortest jobs. Finishing longer assignments first means you have good study habits, so you'll be done with your homework in no time. But keep in mind the due dates of each job. It is better to finish tasks that are for the next day, than those that are for the next week.
Step 5. Do your homework
Instead of going home and watching TV or checking your Facebook, finish your homework first. Make a deal with yourself; for example, every time you finish a job, you will be entitled to 1 hour on the computer. This way of rewarding yourself will motivate you to do your homework. Remember that, although the deadlines to present everything are very tight, you must dedicate all your time and effort when doing your work.
Step 6. Study and prepare for any exams or tests that you have not taken
Some teachers expect you to take exams or make-up tests, because they want you to learn to be responsible.
Step 7. Submit your homework
Every time you finish a job, be sure to submit it. Thus, you will no longer have loose sheets that fill your workspace. It is logical that if you finish a job you have to present it, don't you think? It is better to have a low note than to have no note at all.
Method 2 of 2: Use the listing method
Step 1. Go to your teacher (s) or check your syllable to see what material you are missing
If you find out what concepts you have missed in class, you can decide if you need to set up tutoring schedules. It is important that you choose a tutor right away, as they can be difficult to find. If you don't, it may take you longer to try to complete a job you don't understand.
Step 2. Next, ask your teacher (s) about the work you need to submit
When you write down your assignments, be sure to sort them by course. If you only write them down on a very long list, you will feel busy and even demotivate you. It is better that you write down the works according to the due dates of each one. In this way, it will be easier for you to advance in order, just like the students who did attend classes.
Step 3. Next, ask someone to copy your notes
For this, try to choose someone trustworthy. A good option is a classmate who is academically motivated, pays attention to class, and almost always goes to school. If you choose such a person, you will have a better chance of getting higher grades.
Step 4. Copy the notes by hand
If you only make a copy of them, it will be more difficult for you to remember the notes later; for example, in an exam. Writing is proven to help students remember information. Although it may seem like more work, it will actually save you a lot of time.
Step 5. Make your list
Write your tasks on a sheet of paper. Divide them again according to the course and write down the due dates, so that you know the order of presentation of each one. Draw a star on the most relevant jobs. Most importantly, don't forget to jot down the simplest jobs on your list. You can finish these jobs very quickly so as soon as you do, cross them off your list. Crossing out tasks you finish can act as an incentive for you to finish everything.
Step 6. Submit your work as you finish it
Teachers tend to extend due dates for those students who are trying very hard to catch up.
Step 7. Reward yourself every time you finish a job
Give yourself a bigger reward every time you finish longer or harder jobs. This will motivate you to finish the jobs that require the most effort.
- Don't try to do it all in one day; if you get tired it won't do you any good. Set deadlines and divide the work that you must do efficiently.
Ask your parents for help if you are having trouble catching up on work.
- Even if you think you're never going to catch up, don't worry! We all give up at some point, but you just need to organize yourself well and think about how happy you will be once you've caught up and have nothing to worry about.
If you have any homework but haven't done it, make sure your parents don't know about it.
