Do your school-aged kids make academic resolutions? No? It’s easy for students to get into a routine and stop prioritising schoolwork over the holidays. Now that the New Year has arrived, students must get back on track! Academic resolutions and a post-holiday academic action plan are great ways to manage the future.
SCHOOLS’ ACADEMIC RESOLUTIONS
Firstly, creating academic resolutions with an action plan helps students identify and plan future goals. Without a plan, tracking academic progress and grades becomes difficult. In addition, academic resolutions and planning help students identify their future career options.
ADVANTAGES OF ACADEMIC DECISIONS AND PLANNING
Aside from future planning and academic progress tracking, academic resolutions and planning have three other advantages.
- Preventive planning reduces anxiety! When students plan their daily studies with future goals in mind, they feel less anxious. So, making important decisions in advance reduces daily anxiety. Good planning skills help students learn faster and reduce stress.
- Strengths and Weaknesses: Students must know their strengths and weaknesses as well as their favourite subjects. An academic plan helps students discover their academic passions. An Academic Action Plan can help students choose the right college or programme.
- Progress Tracker Academic Resolutions help students stay motivated. Older students can use a plan to decide whether to change their studies, schools, or even post-secondary institutions. It can help younger students visualise their progress throughout the school year. An academic plan helps students stay motivated and on track with their academic resolutions by comparing where they are now to where they want to be.
