Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend. Topic of the Week: Academic Habits.
Academic Habits can be thought of as effective routines for learning and they ultimately lead to academic skills and abilities. At most levels, the habits a student develops can be as important as the knowledge the student retains.
The true utility of habits: they are used repeatedly and can be improved as the student grows. Eventually, a student’s academic habits will be applicable to his professional work.
Freedom and the nature of habits: only the individual can develop his/her habits. Parents and teachers can help nurture good habits, but they cannot force the development of good habits.
