The solution is to create a personal reference notebook. In the back of your teen’s three-ring binder, help her set up a personal answer book. Here is the place to put the information your teen needs to refer to quickly.
She can include:
A list of the words she has trouble spelling.
Math facts and formulas that are hard to remember.
How-to lists. How to answer an essay question, how to write up a science lab report.
Historical facts for the period she is studying.
Put these facts on separate sheets of paper. Keep them in a plastic sheet cover so they’ll last longer. Now your teen will have facts at her fingertips.
