In 15 minutes I can: do dishes, vacuum the downstairs, scrub the tub, start a load of laundry, read a chapter in a book, feed the dogs, sort the mail, get dinner in the oven, make my bed. The list goes on and on. Why do I share with you what I can do in 15 minutes, because time management is a very important skill in today's world. If you don't manage your time it will manage you. So often I hear students say they don't have time to do worksheets or study or read at home. If you want to reach your educational goals it is very imporant that you make time outside of school to learn. I really believe that if you comit 15 minutes a day outside of class to learning it will shorten the time needed to reach your goal.

So, what can you do in 15 minutes?

When I went to college, I finally figured out how to memorize information and to actually keep it in my long-term memory. I spent time making up information cards (I guess flash cards, really). By taking my hand and writing the information, I read it back in my mind. I actually had to DO something to remember information. Reading from a textbook wasn't studying for me. I spent more than 15 minutes initially, but I spent a good 15 minutes a day reading over my cards and sometimes I'd re-write them until I could recall the information without a problem. I hope this helps other people, too.
