拒绝开学恐慌症 来颗规划定心丸

又要开学啦~经过了一整个暑假的充实与调整之后(我知道很多学生暑假比上学的时候还忙,有的忙着准备标化考试,提高英语能力,有的利用暑假参加了各种学术活动,体育活动,社区服务活动等等),新学期即将到来。新学期将会是充满压力的,面对新的课程,新的老师,以及漫长暑假过后感觉到生疏的一些课本知识,那么要如何给自己制定计划呢?

在新学期为自己制定适合的目标,才能为自己在通向梦想与成功的录取道路上迈出坚实的步伐,请接小编新学期规划定心丸。【本文是写给马上开学的高中童鞋的,而即将去美国读本科的学长学姐们,请看这里:开学迎新,上好出国留学第一课:Orientation

首先最重要的前提是,大家在给自己制定计划的时候,不要好高骛远,尽量让目标容易做到的,并且容易管理和控制,否则很容易不堪重负,结果什么目标也没有完成。

多读书!

Reading is one of the most important things students can do outside of the classroom~~~~~~读书是课堂外学生们能获得进步的最有效的方式,所以下定决心在新学期多读几本书。这里的读书并不仅限于传统书本,可以浏览有趣的博客,杂志,传记等等。

发掘一些新的兴趣爱好

在新学期里尝试一些新鲜玩意吧。在申请大学的时候,兴趣爱好这部分是很重要的参照因素,所以童鞋们要好好利用新学期,给自己一些机会去接触之前没有接触过的领域。可以从与有相同兴趣爱好的小伙伴的交流谈话开始,找到自己感兴趣的话题,尝试先了解一些入门的皮毛,然后再看看是否适合自己,再决定要不要深入下去。

加入新社团

加入一个新社团也是帮助你找到兴趣爱好的途径之一,很多学校的社团或俱乐部会在新学期开始的时候进行招新,可千万不要错过这个好机会哦。

开始为大学申请做规划

不要以为大学申请就是高二才开始的事,事实上,大学申请规划越早开始越好,通常可以从9年级或者10年级就开始着手准备。

那么需要规划一些什么呢?小编为你整理了一个清单:

# 何时参加标化考试

# 调查研究那些你心仪的学校
