A plan is important in all aspects of life. In education, plans help students to organize their work in order to prevent future chaos and disorganization of class work (William 2011). At the start of the week, a student must plan ahead of the lessons to be taught by their teachers. In addition, students should create a plan of how they are going to revise the notes given by their teachers. This will enable them to allocate time effectively. Planning on the time management will also avoid wastage of time. The plan will also ensure that the various subjects taught during that week have been given equal treatment in terms of time allocation.
In the first week in school, a student should always plan on how to settle down in the new environment. It is therefore important for the student to familiarize himself with the school environment. This, according to the plan, should be in the first day of the week. The first day of the school should involve getting information about the various offices in the school environment. This will enable the student to access academic resources whenever needed. However, familiarizing oneself with the school compound should be done after classes. The second day of the week should involve familiarizing with the personnel in the school. These include the teachers and the non-teaching staff. One may also use a notebook for remembrance of their names. Knowing the teachers will help a student to access them easily in times of problems (William 2011).
In the third day of the first week of school, the student should make a personal timetable to enable him to conduct personal studies. This will enable him to divide time between playing, revising and doing assignments. According to the plan, the fourth day in school should be utilized for acquiring reading materials from academic centers such as the library. This will enable the student to be properly equipped and ready to conduct research in the various units offered during the academic period (Michael 2011). This action will prevent the problem of inadequate references for doing assignments. During the fifth day, the student should start reviewing what he has learnt in the first days of school. By this time, the student will have seen the major challenges that may be encountered in the course of the academic period. The student should therefore develop mechanisms to prevent any expected problems.
Rules are essential in every education institution since they govern the way students will conduct themselves in schools. They also act as a guideline for the activities that will be done by students in a certain school. In the 10th grade, the classroom teacher should be involved in making rules that guarantee proper management of the classroom. One of the rules should involve obedience and respect to the class teacher (Michael 2011). This is essential in every classroom in order to have excellent management. If all students respect the teacher, then there will be excellent classroom organization. The other rule should involve the behavior of students. All students should maintain a high level of discipline. The reason for this is that success and discipline are positively related.
The other rule regards noise making. Students should always maintain silence in the classroom. Learning cannot take place in a place where students are making noise. The students should therefore create a quiet atmosphere for effective learning to take place. Proper time management should also be incorporated in the rules. All students should adhere to the time allocation made by the school administration. They should therefore ensure that they attend all lessons on time. Failure to observe punctuality in the classroom will affect the overall school time table (William 2011).
In conclusion, creating a plan in the first week of the school will prevent future problems during the academic period. Student should ensure that all their plans are adhered to. The plans also help to prevent disorganized work and unnecessary wastage of time. Rules are also important in any learning institution. They should therefore be followed strictly by all students in a school. Students who do not follow these rules should face severe punishment. Finally, students should acknowledge rules and plans in their school since they are one of the factors that lead to excellent academic performance.
