Tackle Homework Mountain before Turkey Day!

It happens every holiday. You’ve got a few days off, but Teach interprets that as a few extra days to crank out a load of projects, essays and homework assignments. No sweat, sweetie. With our help, you can have your pumpkin pie…and eat it, too!


Start planning now

Thanksgiving is one week away. That means you have a whole weekend and if you’re lucky, a few half days, to knock out that pile of HW. Work out a schedule for when you’ll start—and finish—each assignment, then stick to it. If you know you’ve got family coming over for an early dinner on Turkey Day, or you always go shopping with Mom on Black Friday, leave those days free to have fun. Loading up elsewhere will keep your mind off your backpack and textbooks, and focused entirely on enjoying the holiday.


Take advantage of half days

I know, I know. Who wants to get out of school early only to come home and do more work? It might not be fun, per say, but it’s an easy way to get all of your work done before the holiday really starts. Treat yourself to lunch with your sweeties right after school, then hit the books. You’ll be happy once it’s over, trust me!


Get it out of the way

Pull out your assignment pad and take a look at everything you have to complete. Then rank them in order of which assignments will be the easiest through hardest, and which assignments you’ll enjoy completely through which assignments you dread. Work from the bottom of the list to the top—hard to easy, loathe to love. Getting the worst of it out of the way first will leave ya feelin’ fine and fancy free.



Take another look at that list and mark off assignments that you can cross off while doing something else. Can you create a collage for art class while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? Could a quick convo with your bookworm uncle help you brainstorm for a lit paper?


Ah, sweet Sunday

We’re all guilty of it, but that doesn’t mean procrastination has to plague your Sunday. With your lab report neatly tucked inside your bio folder instead of half-written at 7 p.m., you’ll be able to enjoy corny holiday flicks with the fam instead of frantically trying to find something A-worthy to say about cells. Sounds pretty fab, right?
