Getting Organised

  1. 1. Getting the Gear Making sure you have all the equipment you need when you need it.
  2. 2. It is so important that you have all the necessary materials at your fingertips when you study. This will avoid the need to stop and ‘go find’ the things you need. By stopping you break the flow of concentration and this causes frustration if you cannot complete your task because you don’t have the ‘right tools’ for the job. 2 Copyright 2009 Get the gear you need You can delete these coins.
  3. 3. Copyright 20093 What equipment do you need? Pens, pencils, highlighter pens, eraser, liquid paper, textas Ruler, calculator, compass, protractor Lined paper, exercise books, note taking cards, blank paper, graph paper, tracing paper, post-it notes, diary, Scissors, glue, adhesive tape, paper clips, Blu tak Writing Measuring / Calculating Securing Organising Recording Files, plastic sleeves, file dividers, manila folders, pocket files, Storage Electronic: Thumb drive, SD card, external hard drive Traditional: Pamphlet boxes, files
  4. 4. Make sure you have all the things you need to support your technology. • Thumb drive or SD card to store information. • External hard drive. • Printer ink cartridges when the ink runs out (this usually happens when you have an assignment due). 4 Copyright 2009 If you are getting into technology…..
  5. 5. Copyright 20095 Make sure you have all the equipment you need for homework, revision and exam preparation in your study area at home. Keep your bag free from ‘old lunches’, smelly socks and anything else you don’t need for school that day. Keep your locker neat and orderly and clean it out on a regular basis. Only keep in it what you need for school. Put a copy of your timetable on the inside of the door. Getting equipped – home – bag - locker HOME BAG LOCKER
  6. 6. If you are able to buy two of everything then you can leave one set of equipment at school and one at home. There is nothing worse than getting to school and realising that you left what you needed at home and vice versa. If you cannot have two sets, make your pencil case a priority when you check off what you need to bring to school or take home. 6 Copyright 2009 Duplicate if you can
  7. 7. Buying files for each of your subjects is very useful especially when it comes to revision time. If you have categorised and labeled your notes well, this will be a great start to your exam preparation. If you use you computer to store your notes electronically the same principles apply. Make sure you label your folders effectively so you can easily locate the necessary notes. 7 Copyright 2009 Files and storage
  8. 8. Subject Folder •English, Maths, Social Studies, History, Physics Unit Folder (e.g. for Social Studies) •Ancient Civilizations, Law and Government, etc.) Topic Folder (e.g. Ancient Civilzations) •Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, the Aztecs etc.) File name may look like this: Social Studies / Ancient Civilzations / Ancient Egypt / Lifestyle Make sure you label your electronic files and folders consistently and clearly so you can find your notes again when it comes revision time. Use this as a guide. 8 Copyright 2009 Smart Filing
