So, since we forget information almost immediately, we focus on STUDY SKILLS all the time the entire year.  Be ready to constantly review all content discussed during class and be prepared to share ideas that you have learned outside of the classroom as well due to doing homework nightly for at least 1-2 hours.

You need to study over the weekends as well; otherwise, you show up to class on Monday, and we spend the first 20-40 minutes reviewing what we did on Friday.  That is not a wise allocation of direct instructional time.  Review your notes and articles/readings please.
