A good student maintains good work habits, follows all directions, and has a positive attitude towards learning. These attributes are the key to not only succeeding in school, but also succeeding in life. Good work habits ensure that all assignments are completed and turned in on time, while following directions affords the student a positive relationship with the teacher. Meanwhile, a positive attitude towards learning shows the instructor that the student appreciates the class and the material being taught. A good student knows that being positive, following directions and keeping good habits will please teachers and make it easier for the student to achieve good grades.
Work habits are essential for a student to succeed. A student must be organized in order to handle the many papers he or she receives throughout the day. A student must also store assignments in a place where they are easily found. If a student is not organized, it will be hard for them to find papers to be completed or turned in and the student will be penalized for late or missing work. Good work habits also include eliminating procrastination and replacing the bad habit with diligence and time management. A student must also be punctual in submitting assignments when they are due. Quick, thorough completion, organization, and diligence all are excellent habits that increase the productivity of a student. A good student will realize this and will utilize his or her good work habits to his or her advantage.
Following instructions is an important skill for a student to master. A competent student knows that following directions helps favor him in the eyes of the teacher. Students who follow directions have more time to work instead of asking pointless questions or disrupting class. Listening to and following directions can prevent confusion, which is why a good student should listen to any and all orders given before beginning the work being assigned.
A positive attitude...
