I'm putting together a presentation on tips for success for my incoming 7th graders in the Fall. I am looking for just basic stuff - the things good students take for granted. I'll be doing a full unit on Habits of Mind later in the year but this is just to get them started off right. So far I have section on: -Be prepared -Stay focused -Ask good questions -Be kind to teachers Within each section I have specific tips and strategies that cover things like SLANT, note-taking skills, etc. so I'm just looking for any big ideas I might have missed. Sooooo long post short: What tips would you give to new middle schoolers to help them be successful from the get go?
