High School

High school can be a challenging time for young people. As a teenager today, you deal with many issues involving school, family and friends. Sometimes, these issues just seem to pile up and one of the outcomes may be you find yourself failing a class in school. So what do you do, if you find yourself failing a class? Some students will choose to fail and have wasted a great deal of time and energy for nothing. Other students, however, may chose not to fail and to take steps to try to correct the problems leading to them not passing their class. Choosing not to fail is not always the easiest route to take but it helps prepare for the world you will face as an adult by developing your skills in maturity and discipline.

If you are failing a class talk with the teacher. Explain your situation and ask the teacher for suggestions on how to pass the class. After you ask for suggestions, be prepared to listen to what the teacher has to say. Keep an open mind about suggestions the teacher may have to help you pass the class. You might not like the suggestions the teacher makes but be willing to try some new ideas.

After you talk with teacher and find out what you need to do to pass the class, see if you can find resources to help you. If you have a friend who is doing well in the class, ask if they can help you study. If you know of a study group for the class see if you can join. Remember, if you enlist the help of others to help you study stay focused during the time you are working and try to learn as much as you can.

Study guides are another tool which can be helpful. They can often be found on-line and sometimes libraries may have a copy. It may be worth an hour or two to see if you can locate one. If you do fine a study guide, remember it is not a short cut to learning the material, but rather a guide to help you make sense of the material.

Keep ttrying to fix things. If you do fail, learn from the experience and make it a one time event rather than a pattern of behavior. This will make it better for you, ultimately.
