If you aren’t already using a planner, start using one. It is a great way to give yourself an idea of how much time you will need to complete your homework as the day progresses. That way if you have any assignments that are not due the next day, you can try to decide if you should put them off because you have a lot of work to do. If you have one paper due Wednesday and one due Friday and you have a game on Thursday, you may want to start working on the one essay early so that you have time to work on the second one on Wednesday because Thursday you will be at the game.

## Create a work space

There should be someplace like a desk or table that you do your homework every day. This is your work space. It should be clutter free and distraction free, so that you can concentrate on your homework. Stock this space with the essentials that you may need like a dictionary or a calculator.
