How Assignments Can Improve Success ...

How Assignments Can Improve Success
When it comes to a seemingly overwhelming task-like getting our home time management under control-you have to find anything and everything that works for you.
So, what can high school or college teach you about time management at home? Plenty!
I don't know about you, but I was the worst student in high school yet went on to become a stellar student in college.
One of the biggest differences was that in one I felt nothing but disdain for the assignments given and refused to perform them and in the other I, well, I didn't exactly embrace them but I did do them and, more importantly, to the best of my ability.
When I was assigned a project the professor made explicitly clear what they expected me to accomplish and it actually made it easier to accomplish the task.
Dr. Peeler used assignments very effectively in the learning process. The way he taught took a huge paper with multiple sections and made us completely concentrate on a single section at a time.
Using that model as guidance, when it comes to getting things done, assignments can make clear the steps that need to be completed in order to reach your goal.
Moving that process into the home front, assignments can eradicate the most common roadblocks. These can include:
• Not knowing where to start
• Or what to do
• Or the steps required
• Or if the order of the steps is important?
• And, if so, which step to begin with?
Assignments can improve success by letting you break down more complex tasks into bite-sized chunks and get one completed before moving to the next.
In this way you can take one step, then another, then another toward reaching any goal you desire.

  • When it comes to a seemingly overwhelming task-like getting our home time management under control-you have to find anything and everything that works for you.Think back to those days long ago when you were in high school or college and remember why you did the things you did. Was it not because some teacher or professor made some assignment? I mean... really... did you just want to write those papers and do those research projects?

When I completed each section I turned it in and received a grade as well as feedback.
  • This was tremendously helpful in the whole learning process... especially the feedback I received. It really helped guide me and keep me on the straight-and-narrow.
  • You should have seen how stressed I was at the beginning of the semester when I found out we had this very large research paper due. I seriously panicked even after I found out it wasn't all going to have to be done at the same time. It just seemed like such a monumental task.
