高年级倦态症

高年级倦怠症在高年级学生中是一种常见的“病症”。About.com的“教育青少年”专题里写道:家长们通常会在学生提交完申请书,约12年级学年过一半的时候发现学生开始出现高年级倦怠症的“症状”。症状包括成绩开始下降,作业没有办法准时完成和缺课。

12年级的学生确实就要离开高中。他们或许对毕业之后的未来都有了计划,但是这不代表学生们的“现在”就不重要了。

相信你一定听说过有学生的大学录取被撤销,收到大学录取书并不是这个大学申请过程的结束。学生的大学录取通知被撤销,最常见的原因就是学习成绩下降。即使大学已录取你了,如果你在高中的最后阶段分数下降的话,大学可能会重新考虑对你的录取。是的,大学知道你可能会得高年级倦怠症。

如果你觉得自己可能得了高年级倦怠症,以下是给你的一些建议:

  • 试着给自己设立一个小的目标。例如:下次数学考试争取拿到90分以上的成绩,提前一周完成作文等等。将提高成绩的计划分成几个小的能够更好地帮助你达成目标。
  • 改进学习习惯。使用日历或行事历记录该完成的事能够更好地帮助你管理你的时间;通过学习小组来复习考试;提前复习考试避免前一天晚上的临时抱佛脚。改进学习习惯可以有效帮助你避免得到高年级倦怠症,良好的学习习惯对将来读大学的时候也有帮助。
  • 拨出休息时间。我相信这一点大家都已经掌握了。。。

其中一个大学生怀念的就是他们还在对高中时的美好时光。这是毕业前的最后冲刺,千万不要让高年级倦怠症浪费你在高中的最后几个月了!

Senioritis

This is a very common “disease” for senior students.  According to Parenting Teens on About.com, parents typically begin to notice signs of senioritis around the midyear of the senior year when students have submitted most of their college applications.  Signs include poor grades and incomplete assignments, cutting class, and increased absences.

Just because senior students are leaving high school soon and may already have their post-high school plan in place, it doesn’t mean that they should care less about their last year of high school.

There are cases of college revoking student’s acceptance – receiving a college acceptance letter is not the end of a college admissions story.  The most common reason for a college to withdraw an acceptance is due to low grades.  Yes, colleges notice your senioritis.

If you think you have “senioritis”, here are some suggestions for you:

  • Set smaller and more manageable goals. For example, get a 90 or above on the next math test; finish an essay a week early to get some feedback from the teacher, etc.  By breaking down grade goals into smaller chunks can help you focus on one task at a time.
  • Improve study habits. Keeping a planner helps improve your time management skill, forming a study group helps you on reviewing difficult material or studying for AP tests, starting to review for a test early than procrastinating the night before.  Improving study habits not only helps fight senioritis, it will also prepare you for the rigorous college curriculum.
  • Take some time to relax. I am sure that you know exactly how to do this….

One of the many things college students miss is the time when they were in high school.  Let’s not let senioritis take away from your high school experience and make the most out of the last couple months of high school!
