It was not very long ago that the majority of buttons had a shiny, iridescent quality. In fact, take a look at shirts and dresses as recent as the 1970’s, and you might notice these luminous buttons. They are made of mother-of-pearl, which is the inner shell layer of certain mollusks, and is made out of nacre – the same stuff that pearls are made of. Before the late 1800’s, buttons were predominately an import item in the United States. That is, until John Frederick Boepple came along.

Born into a German button-making factory, Boepple honed his craft and expertise in Germany and Austria until 1887, when he reached a big turning point in his life. Prior to that time in 1887, stiffer and stiffer tariffs were being placed on imported material. Since Boepple used predominately imported shells and horns to make his buttons, this hurt his business very badly. To make matters worse, his wife died suddenly. With nothing left to live for, Boepple headed straight to the one place that he knew beautiful shells were abundant and untapped – the Mississippi River in the United States.

He had a hard road ahead. He had no friends or contacts in the U.S. and he spoke no English. He was focused on the task at hand, however, and even while he performed odd jobs for farmers and business owners in Illinois, he learned enough English to get around, and started collecting odds and ends of old machinery to start constructing a lathe with which to make buttons.

Lucky for Boepple, the MicKinley Tariff of 1890 echoed the stiff import tariffs that had been imposed just a few years earlier in Europe. Until this McKinley Tariff, people had been importing buttons from Europe. For the dual reason that the button industry was suffering in Europe because of the unavailability of inexpensive materials and the fact that it became even more expensive in the U.S. to order the already scant amount of buttons available in Europe, the U.S. was ripe for its own button industry.

Boepple realized he needed to strike while the iron was hot, and promptly moved to Muscatine, Iowa, where the Mississippi River had many thick-shelled mollusks for a fledgling button-maker. He built himself the best equipment he could muster out of the odds and ends he had collected, and started making buttons. He was very good at it, and word got around that mother-of-pearl buttons could be gotten in the U.S. and for a reasonable price.

Two investors, I.A. Kerr and William Molis, took an interest in Boepple’s tiny business, and bolstered him enough to create the very first freshwater pearl button factory in the U.S. and even the world, as European button-makers did not make the buttons in factories. Unfortunately for Boepple, Kerr and Molis did not understand the delicacy required of working with mother-of-pearl, and purchased equipment ill-suited to the process. They were anxious to mass-produce the buttons, which Boepple saw basically as works of art. The alliance soon crumbled, and while Kerr and Molis’s factory stayed open and produced buttons, Boepple made buttons out of his home, and opened a new factory that ran the way he wanted it to.

Muscatine thrived with this new business, and by 1905 produced more than 30% of all the buttons in the world at that time. By 1897 there were 53 button companies in Muscatine alone, not to mention the many other button factories along the Mississippi River. It wasn’t very long before someone figured out a good way to automate the creation of mother-of-pearl buttons, thus making Boepple’s old-world craftmanship (and the time it took to make a button) obsolete.

Boepple stopped making buttons, and concentrated on a freelance business that bought shells for other button companies. He soon realized that the quality of shells had diminished, and was dismayed to find out that this “button boom” had depleted the Mississippi River’s natural supply of mussels. He went to work for the Fairport Biological Station, which was an initiative founded by Congress in 1908 to find out how to propagate mussels for this lucrative American industry.

Boepple modified the tool used most frequently to catch mussels – making it so it spared the younger mussels to allow them to grow bigger and multiply. While he was performing the duties associated with this job, he cut his fot on a broken mussel shell. Just a few months later, he died of blood poisoning in a Muscatine hospital.

To this day, Boepple is credited with the creation of an industry that provided Muscatine with jobs and income for many years.

The following is not about how to write profitable articles for print magazines. In fact, it isn’t about selling articles at all. There is nothing wrong with selling your writing, but it is a difficult field to get into and your income will always be limited.

For example, how much can a new writer make for a 600-word article from a magazine? I recently looked at what various magazines pay for such short articles. It ranged from a few free copies of the magazine up to about $100. Longer articles can be sold for more, of course, but those require quite a bit more work, and sometimes a fair amount of research.

Now consider what you can do with a 600-word article if you have a website to promote. Suppose, for example, that your site is about body building, and you make money referring people to various affiliate products for which you are paid a commission. Assuming the site is based on an interest of yours (that always helps), you can probably write an article on “Six Top Body Building Tips” in thirty minutes or so, just from your own experience.

Afterwards you distribute that article to a dozen or more free article directories. The link back to your site that is in the “about the author” section at the end of each, will help your ranking in the search engine. Visitors to the directories will read your article and click through to your site. Other site owners will take it to use on their sites, providing you with more exposure and links (they are required to leave the link active if they use the article).

If this is done right, you’ll have some additional traffic. If that traffic results in a few dollars per month in additional revenue for you, you’ve done well. A few dollars every month, after all, can add up to more than a hundred dollars over the years, which is decent pay for your hour spent writing and distributing the article.

That’s how to write profitable articles. The income you get is residual, meaning it will continue to come in automatically long after your initial effort. Now let’s look at three rules to make sure that you get the best results with this strategy.

1. Target good keywords.

Readers will find your article mostly through search engines, so it’s important that you target the words they use to search. A bit of research at any of the free sources of keyword traffic information will supply you with a list of phrases that are searched often enough. The keyword phrase, “how to write profitable articles,” which I target in this piece, is a relatively poor one, with only about 200 people per month searching it, but it contains “how to write,” and “profitable articles,” both of which have additional search traffic, plus it is an easy one for me to write about. In general, target keywords that have sufficient traffic, but stay away from those that are hyper-competitive (too many internet marketers are targeting “make money,” and “lose weight” for example).

2. Optimize the article. Good Luck !, Where there’s a will there’s a way ,,..

While there are many great tools which can help you tech ESL/TOEFL easier as well as increase the retention of the lessons, the best and most proven techniques by far is that teaching ESL/TOEFL through music, games and even movies. Movies are a fun way of teaching ESL to a student and can really get them involved with the entire concept.

Let’s face it, there are so many movies out there that only come in English and are also very enjoyable to watch. They are really easy to come by as well as being available in a wide variety of possible formats depending on your region. Furthermore, you know how long the movie is so you are able to pick ones that the students will be able to watch the entire thing during one class.

The students will learn English a lot easier when you use movies as a teaching tool. Anyone can remember back when they were in school, those days when the English or grammar teacher would be in a good mood and upon arrival in the classroom that big television or even projector was sitting in the classroom already which only meant one thing; movie time.

Back then when you saw this movie in class, all you saw was something fun to do that was not a class based activity. On be known to you, your teacher had an ulterior motive behind the movie and you may not have realized it then, but it did work. Just like your teacher used this technique on you, you too can now utilize it to teach your students the English language.

Nothing beats movies like White Fang, Old Yeller and many of the other greats that were also works of literary art before they were turned into movies. The compelling story lines and the action one watches in these movies compels you to stay in your seat and pay attention. When it is all said and done, you are in fact teaching the students English without having to actually teach it. Just make sure that you pick a good enough movie that will entrance your students into wanting to see more and more movies.

Then when you combine the movie with a game styled quiz, you can make sure that your students will retain vast amounts of the English language without even knowing that they did.

Music is a fun and exciting way for one to teach English as a second language. One of the biggest examples of this concept can be seen in various Asian countries who have such a desire to learn English that the karaoke machine was born. There is not a single street corner you could go to in some countries where you will not hear the sounds of one signing in a karaoke machine.

Music and ESL teaching can be a great addition to the curriculum next to teaching English through games. The whole concept behind it is that music makes learning ESL more fun and when the student is having fun, they do not see it as learning which in turn results in some amazingly high retention rates.

There is no point in having to constantly re-teach a student the same lesson over and over again when you use music as a teaching aide. If the student is having fun, it just makes the class more interesting and not only will you have fun as well, but your students will be thanking you for teaching them in this manner.

Just like when you were younger and attending preschool or even kindergarten, the use of music to teach you the English language was an important part. Granted you cannot teach an older student the same nursery rhymes and songs that you would teach a young child, but that does not in any way shape or form limit your abilities.

Teaching them by taking songs from the top hit lists, get the lyrics for the song, and when they first come in for class, pass the lyrics out in the form of a poem. Then you will want to tell them, “Class, today we will learn this entire poem!” Their eyes will get all crossed and the sweat will begin pouring down their foreheads and while they are mumbling the words to themselves and not paying attention, you will be pulling out the radio and playing the song in front of them. They will simply love you for teaching them in this manner and the first moment that they hear the song being played, all of their tensions will ease away into an oblivion.

Before you know it the class will be over and they will be able to sing a vast majority of the song you have given them. So much in fact that they will most likely try to learn the rest of the song over the night which makes for a perfect “recital” quiz at the beginning of the next lesson

Learn To speak English

The acquisition of a language is not simple, whether it’s your first language or a second one. Regardless of what a lot of non-native English speakers the world over like to think, learning English is not easy, either. Those who wrongly think that to learn to speak English isn’t difficult will find out quickly how wrong they are.

First, learning English at a basic, communicative level is admittedly not as difficult as learning some languages is. So many people around the world speak English that many different accents and pronunciations are found even amongst native speakers. Because it’s often easy to pick up conversational English, people make the mistake of thinking learning English is easy.

Second, there are many rules in English. Both grammar and sentence must adhere to strict rules. But nearly every rule has exceptions. And these exceptions often have no discernible logic to them. So, English has lots of flexibility, as well. This leads to many inconsistencies in when and how the rules are enforced. And it makes rote memorization impossible as a method to learn English.

Next, the pronunciation is also inconsistently followed. Because of its fluidity, pronunciation can differ greatly within even nearby regions of native-speaking countries. But mastering English pronunciation is essential to successfully mastering the language. Because of the fluidity, however, mastering the pronunciation is hard. It takes practice and diligence. And then more of each.

A fourth difficulty is recognizing the correct structure, grammar, and vocabulary usage, even when
what is correct doesn’t necessarily sound right. An example is split infinitives. It is taught in English class not use split infinitives, yet split infinitives are common in spoken English. This is because they’re often used for emphasis or because it’s thought to sound better.

A fifth issue is knowing when to use colloquial English and when to use proper English. Because celebrities often use proper English wrongly, this isn’t easy. Many who are learning pick this up and then try to imitate. On the other hand, many professionals or academics don’t know how to use slang or speak colloquially.

A sixth problem when studying English is the language “masters” out there claiming that theirs is the best method for learning English fast. This is false, regardless of what scientific facts they present showing how effective their curriculum is. Don’t listen to these charlatans. Learning English, as with learning any language, is not easy and learning it properly takes time, patience, practice, and good teaching.

Finally, English is a fun language. Listening to non-native speakers is not difficult for native speakers. We’re used to hearing a variety of accents from our fellow native speakers. Therefore, if you intend on learning to speak English, even the barest of efforts will allow you even basic communicative abilities.

On the other hand, if you want your skills to progress, it will require what all things require in order to master them. A stable base of the rudimentary, daily pronunciation practice, acquisition of new vocabulary every day, and not being afraid of making mistakes. Remember, though, learning to speak English is not simple. However, it can seem easy if you work hard. GOOD LUCK MY FRIEND

Teach English Abroad

Teaching abroad is a life-changing experience. Not only will you see and do things that you never thought you would, but you’ll boost your confidence and develop new skills that can be used in a variety of situations. Just how much it’ll change you depends on how long you work for; and you might find that once you start, you just won’t want to stop.

The volunteers – 1 week to 26 weeks

To get paid teaching work abroad, you’ll have to commit to a short term contract, usually no less than 3 months long. But if you don’t have that much time to spare, you can always try volunteering. Just like with a paid position, you’ll work alongside local people and get a unique view of the culture. But it’ll often feel more rewarding because learning English will make even more of a difference to your underprivileged students lives.

These mini-placements are perfect if you want to test the water. You’ll get glimpse of life as a TOEFL teacher, so you can decide whether it’s right for you or if you’d rather travel on your savings. And then there’s the experience! With a volunteer placement under your belt, you’ll really stand out from the crowd when you’re applying for jobs. Which means you’ll have an even better chance of getting that ideal job.

The gappers – 3 to 12 month contracts

Most teaching contracts are one year long, which makes them popular with gap year travellers. The advantage of choosing one of these contracts is that you’ll have time
to get over the culture shock and really enjoy your time away. After exploring the big landmarks, you can move onto the hidden treasures that tourists rarely see. And since you’ll be living and working with local people, it won’t be hard to find them.

Taking on a year-long contract will also look great on your CV it shows the commitment that employers really love. You’ll have plenty of time to develop your skills, improve your teaching technique and build your confidence. And best of all, you’ll see your class develop through a whole year of study and realise the effect you’ve had on their ability to speak English and, ultimately, their lives.

It’s also possible to get shorter placements of 3, 6 or 9 months. These are ideal if you want to make a little money while you travel, but still see a range of destinations. However, these contracts are harder to come by, so you might want to consider CV Job Placement Service.

The lifers 2 years to forever

Have you ever worried that you’ll never find a job you enjoy? For some, teaching abroad takes all those fears away and they never come back. Some travellers love teaching so much that they take another year long placement, then another, then who knows! The world is their oyster!

The point is that you don’t have to decide if TOEFL is the career for you just yet. You can try it for a year and go home or you can just keep going.

Your TOEFL qualification gives you the freedom to spend as much or as little time travelling as you like. So what’s it to be? A week, a month, a year or a lifetime?

Every class is different, so ways to manage a classroom aren’t cut and dried: there’s no simple list of things that go wrong together with standard solutions. Teaching experience is a huge advantage as gives you the chance to try different teaching methods and find out which ones work. These suggestions can be experimented with and adapted to suit your own students.

Why have a plan?

It is of the utmost importance that you always make a plan. If any teacher goes into a class without a plan, it usually ends up improvised with no clear start, finish, or aim. The students can see this a mile away, and it can be hard to inspire them to learn when no clear indication of effort has been shown on your part.

A plan on the other hand shows the teacher cares and has a clear aim. The previous lesson aim is revised, homework checked, target language is taught and practiced and the students receive more homework. It is framed and there is a routine. The students will feel in safe in the hands of their conscientious teacher. It also means that you go into a class more confident and relaxed. Lesson plans do, however, need to be flexible as you never know what’s going to happen, but when you have a basic frame work this can be moulded to whichever situation arises. For instance, imagine you want to teach the past simple tense, but once start you find that students already know it. Then you can use the presentation part of the lesson as a review and allot more time on the practise tasks.

If students are late, waiting can disrupt the structure of a good plan and make the subject harder to teach. It’s best to start your class straight away, and use it to your advantage by asking the punctual students to explain what they’ve been doing to the latecomers. It’s a perfect real-life situation for them to practise speaking English.

Making a plan will take up a lot of time at first but, with practice, they’ll get easier. You can even save your plans and re-use them another time.

What is effective classroom management?

Effective classroom management promotes efficiency and a healthy learning environment. Set the pattern from the first day; recent investigation suggests the pace is set in the first two weeks, so there’s no time to waste. It’s a good idea to explain your expectations to the students; if they tell you theirs too, it can encourage more involvement and interaction. This may also show them how seriously you take your job and that you expect them to work hard to establish a working environment.

It’s also important to provide every student, not matter what their level, with the opportunity to interact in English and participate in all the activities. They all deserve the same attention.

What do we need to know about students?

In order to create lesson plans that are tailored to your students, you need to know more about them:

Why they are learning English
How they prefer to learn
What things they like doing in class
Outside interests: i.e. music & cinema. (this can help you find interesting topics as a medium for teaching the school syllabus)

This information helps you to plan lessons by focusing directly on students’ needs and preferences, promoting a caring and safe environment for learning to take place. You must also bear in mind the different ages and cultures of all the students, and choose materials and topics with care. In some cultures, students are expected to listen to the teacher and not ask questions, in such cases it is of vital importance to encourage them to interact in the class.

Creating a positive environment

Consistently reinforcing high expectations from the students will ensure that they know your expectations. Here are some ideas:

Provide a points and reward system. Put students’ names on a chart on the wall. Every time they make a big effort, do homework, and so forth, they earn a point (or for the younger learners, a star); then at the end of the month they get a reward. Be careful not to just award people for high quality work, otherwise the weaker students will get disheartened. So it’s best to award points for effort and hard work.

Pin the students work on the wall to see: if they know other students are going to see their work, they’re more likely to try harder.

Praise for good effort. This can work wonders and only takes a second.

Student of the week/month certificate. The advantages are obvious but, as always, there are some disadvantageous too; if one student earns the certificate several times and others not at all, it could be demoralising. So like all these techniques, be careful and sensitive.

Group rewarding. Try splitting the class into groups, and award each group points based on effort or performance. That way, students who are not under as much pressure. It can be very useful in difficult situations.

In any points system, always allow students to make up for points/stars not gained. For instance, if a student hasn’t done his homework, allow him to earn his point/star by re-doing his homework “with a little extra”. These techniques are great with younger learners and teenagers, and you could even use them to add a fun dimension to an adult class.

Moving on now to the materials and syllabus you use in class. No matter what the group level or age, it’s a good idea to focus directly on their needs and preferences as it’s often an area of complaint from many students. You’ll be surprised how often you hear someone say that they told the teacher that they needed to learn English for travelling and yet the teacher hadn’t focused on it yet. Focusing directly on students’ needs is more motivating and students appreciate that you’re thinking about them when you plan your lessons. Otherwise, they may think you are not listening.

A few more important points in this section are:

1. Assess students based on their accomplishment of the objective and not with each other. It makes the class friendlier and less competitive between students, and promotes a more sharing environment.

Make your classroom activities diverse and interesting. Try to surprise them.

2. Organising your classroom

Seating arrangements depend on factors like your students’ age, culture, classroom size and the aim of the lesson. The horseshoe shape is particularly useful as it allows you to interact with all of your students, while your students have a clear view of you and the board. It is also easy to mix up paired work, as students can work with the person to their right and then change to the person to their left with no upheaval. It can be best to organise the seats/desks before the students come to class.

However, there are many classroom arrangements and they are all useful. For instance, Buzz groups are great for sharing information, while rows good for exams.

It’s always useful to chop and change groups, so that all the students get a chance to work with each other. The sharing and exchanging of ideas helps them become more of a group. You could even set a seating chart/rota to help with this.

For younger learners, sitting on the floor is great. The kids can wriggle and fidget all they want and pens and jotters/note books don’t fall on the floor.

Also before your students come in, make sure that you’ve got all the equipment you need (audio, video, etc) and that it’s all working.

3. Making rules & routines

Set the classroom rules on the first day. You could discuss this with the class and even ask them to make the rules themselves. This often prompts them to feel more involved in their own learning and take the rules more seriously. However, make sure there are consequences if they break any of them rules and that they are followed through. The students can even make the consequences, too, just make sure they’re fair and realistic! A maximum of 10 rules should be enough; it’s useful to put them on a poster for all to see partly as a reminder and partly as a good way to memorise whole structures. Remember to take into account the ages of the students: it’s best used with kids, but it can be fun with adults, too (if arrives late they put 50 cents into a box, then at the end of the month it can pay for the drinks!)

4. Maintaining motivation

Many students start the year excited about the new course and teacher, and it’s key to keep it like this all the academic year. Here are some techniques you could use or adapt:

At the end of every term, make a scrapbook magazine of their work. This could be for each individual student or a class magazine. You could also use it the following year so your new class knows what’s expected of them. Letting students design, set up and create the magazine from scratch will encourage them to take responsibility for their own learning.
Use new technology if you have it. Things like beamers and overhead projectors can add a fun dimension to the lesson.
Always check homework and provide timely feedback, otherwise students will feel you are not taking it seriously and they simply won’t do it.

Make sure your grading is consistent.

Students need to feel and see they are learning; apart from praise, a physical record of this is useful and many schools have tests and reports. Remember to inform student of this system well before the end of term and let them know in advance if they are in danger of performing badly. That way, you can help the students who are struggling.
Provide students with the tools to expose themselves to English outside the classroom: things like English theatre, International nights in pubs where people speak in English.
Don’t settle for any less than students’ best effort.

Quite a few ideas to work with, all of which can be adapted or improved depending on your particular experience and the students’ age or culture! This, together with empathy for your students will provide you with useful tools to help manage a classroom efficiently.

Belajar merupakan hal yang wajib dilakukan oleh para pelajar dan mahasiswa. Belajar pada umumnya dilakukan di sekolah ketika jam pelajaran berlangsung dibimbing oleh Bapak atau Ibu Guru. Belajar yang baik juga dilakukan di rumah baik dengan maupun tanpa pr / pekerjaan rumah. Belajar yang dilakukan secara terburu-buru akibat dikejar-kejar waktu memiliki dampak yang tidak baik.
Berikut ini adalah tips dan triks yang dapat menjadi masukan berharga dalam mempersiapkan diri dalam menghadapi ulangan atau ujian :
1. Belajar Kelompok Belajar kelompok dapat menjadi kegiatan belajar menjadi lebih menyenangkan karena ditemani oleh teman dan berada di rumah sendiri sehingga dapat lebih santai. Namun sebaiknya tetap didampingi oleh orang dewasa seperti kakak, paman, bibi atau orang tua agar belajar tidak berubah menjadi bermain. Belajar kelompok ada baiknya mengajak teman yang pandai dan rajin belajar agar yang tidak pandai jadi ketularan pintar. Dalam belajar kelompok kegiatannya adalah membahas pelajaran yang belum dipahami oleh semua atau sebagian kelompok belajar baik yang sudah dijelaskan guru maupun belum dijelaskan guru.
2. Rajin Membuat Catatan Intisari Pelajaran Bagian-bagian penting dari pelajaran sebaiknya dibuat catatan di kertas atau buku kecil yang dapat dibawa kemana-mana sehingga dapat dibaca di mana pun kita berada. Namun catatan tersebut jangan dijadikan media mencontek karena dapat merugikan kita sendiri.
3. Membuat Perencanaan Yang Baik Untuk mencapai suatu tujuan biasanya diiringi oleh rencana yang baik. Oleh karena itu ada baiknya kita membuat rencana belajar dan rencana pencapaian nilai untuk mengetahui apakah kegiatan belajar yang kita lakukan telah maksimal atau perlu ditingkatkan. Sesuaikan target pencapaian dengan kemampuan yang kita miliki. Jangan menargetkan yang yang nomor satu jika saat ini kita masih di luar 10 besar di kelas. Buat rencana belajar yang diprioritaskan pada mata pelajaran yang lemah. Buatlah jadwal belajar yang baik.
4. Disiplin Dalam Belajar Apabila kita telah membuat jadwal belajar maka harus dijalankan dengan baik. Contohnya seperti belajar tepat waktu dan serius tidak sambil main-main dengan konsentrasi penuh. Jika waktu makan, mandi, ibadah, dan sebagainya telah tiba maka jangan ditunda-tunda lagi. Lanjutkan belajar setelah melakukan kegiatan tersebut jika waktu belajar belum usai. Bermain dengan teman atau game dapat merusak konsentrasi belajar. Sebaiknya kegiatan bermain juga dijadwalkan dengan waktu yang cukup panjang namun tidak melelahkan jika dilakukan sebelum waktu belajar. Jika bermain video game sebaiknya pilih game yang mendidik dan tidak menimbulkan rasa penasaran yang tinggi ataupun rasa kekesalan yang tinggi jika kalah.
5. Menjadi Aktif Bertanya dan DitanyaJika ada hal yang belum jelas, maka tanyakan kepada guru, teman atau orang tua. Jika kita bertanya biasanya kita akan ingat jawabannya. Jika bertanya, bertanyalah secukupnya dan jangan bersifat menguji orang yang kita tanya. Tawarkanlah pada teman untuk bertanya kepada kita hal-hal yang belum dia pahami. Semakin banyak ditanya maka kita dapat semakin ingat dengan jawaban dan apabila kita juga tidak tahu jawaban yang benar, maka kita dapat membahasnya bersama-sama dengan teman. Selain itu
6. Belajar Dengan Serius dan Tekun Ketika belajar di kelas dengarkan dan catat apa yang guru jelaskan. Catat yang penting karena bisa saja hal tersebut tidak ada di buku dan nanti akan keluar saat ulangan atau ujian. Ketika waktu luang baca kembali catatan yang telah dibuat tadi dan hapalkan sambil dimengerti. Jika kita sudah merasa mantap dengan suatu pelajaran maka ujilah diri sendiri dengan soal-soal. Setelah soal dikerjakan periksa jawaban dengan kunci jawaban. Pelajari kembali soal-soal yang salah dijawab.
7. Hindari Belajar BerlebihanJika waktu ujian atau ulangan sudah dekat biasanya kita akan panik jika belum siap. Jalan pintas yang sering dilakukan oleh pelajar yang belum siap adalah dengan belajar hingga larut malam / begadang atau membuat contekan. Sebaiknya ketika akan ujian tetap tidur tepat waktu karena jika bergadang semalaman akan membawa dampak yang buruk bagi kesehatan, terutama bagi anak-anak.
8. Jujur Dalam Mengerjakan Ulangan Dan Ujian Hindari mencontek ketika sedang mengerjakan soal ulangan atau ujian. Mencontek dapat membuat sifat kita curang dan pembohong. Kebohongan bagaimanapun juga tidak dapat ditutup-tutupi terus-menerus dan cenderung untuk melakukan kebohongan selanjutnya untuk menutupi kebohongan selanjutnya. Anggaplah dengan nyontek pasti akan ketahuan guru dan memiliki masa depan sebagai penjahat apabila kita melakukan kecurangan.
Semoga tips cara belajar yang benar ini dapat memberikan manfaat untuk kita semua, amin.
