Planning your homework teaches you life skills

Planning your homework schedule teaches you how to prioritise, estimate, and manage your own time. Spending a little time now more effectively can help gain higher grades later.

These skills will help in your personal and working life.

Scheduling skills

  • Prioritisation – what needs to be done first, which is more important, which can wait until later if there is not time today?
  • Estimation – using your past experience to predict how long the job will take
  • Time Management – understanding what time is available and how you can use it most effectively
