Daily Learning is Important

Most students- of any age- are familiar with cramming for a test. Cramming means that a student tries to learn all the material one or two days before a test. Cramming does not work for most people. When a student crams, the student tries to memorize a set of words that go with a definition or concept. The problem is that if the test question asks for the information in a different manner, the student is at a loss to answer it because it was not asked the way it was memorized.

Daily learning means that a student adds between 5 and 10 minutes to homework for a subject. During this time the student learns the material. Information should be put in the student’s own words. If a teacher insists on an exact definition from a text, then the student should make a flashcard and highlight the important words to remember.

Doing daily learning will also help the student learn information to make sure it is completely understood. This gives the student extended time to learn the information and to be able to use it from memory.
