Great Success in School With Your Binder - (AVID Strategies)
One of the most important tools for academic success is a neat, complete, and organized binder. Almost all teachers look upon the students who have success at keeping a neat and complete binder as the students who are most successful in their classes. Consequently, a large amount of time should be devoted to getting your binder ready at the beginning of each trimester and maintaining it throughout the school year. Each day you need your binder open and ready every morning to take the full advantage of SLANT:
S - sit up straight
L - lean forward to listen
A - ask questions
N - nod to show that you are understanding
T - talk to your teachers; get to know them!
