Third Quarter

How did you do in the third quarter? Did you do as well as you wanted, or did you fall somewhat short of your goals? For those of you super students with A's, what advice can you give the rest of the students to help get A's and B's.

To be the first to respond to my own post, I think i did alright. I pulled off a B with the help of high test scores. The thing that kept me from attaining an A was missing homework. Homework is a grade killer. If you do all of your homework not only will your grades will love you, but your test scores will go up as well. Homework is the key to being super awsome, so don't be a bum and do it.

Well overall I thought the third quarter went a little better than the second quarter because I started to buckle down and do better. The reason is because I started doing my homework but still those test and some of those quizzes I still can’t seem to do well on them. The main thing for people who have bad grades would be do your homework and turn in any late homework not turned in yet to turn them in even if you get a couple points for them. So for the fourth quarter I strive to study a little harder to get better grades on my test and quizzes and should pull off a B then.

Overall I did not do good at all third quarter, I was very lazy with turning in my work and I regret be so lazy. I was a student that procrastinated to do all of my work at the last minute. I did not do good on barely any of the tests or quizes. Next Quarter I need to Buckle down and not slack off at all, I need to turn all of my work in on time also.

I think I did horrible this quarter and I think the only way I’ll be able to pull off a D would to turn in all my work and hope Mr. Dutrow finds it in the graces of his heart to pass me. Next Quarter I will stride to do better in all of my classes, this quarter I pretty much thought school was a joke and didn’t care about it; until this week I realized that if I don’t pass my classes my life is going to suck, everything that I enjoy rugby, phone, computer will be taken away. This upcoming quarter I am vowing to myself to do my very best in everything, turn in my homework the day that it is due and actually study for test.

I think I did well in the third quarter. While I don’t know my final grade I believe I have a B this quarter, which is what I expected. I believe the easiest way to achieve good grades is to just do your homework on time everyday and grades will improve.

I thought i did alright but i fell behinf because we had a lot of one page assignments that i didnt get done when i should have. I think next quarter if i do all my work then i can get an a.

I think I did okay for the third quarter but i believe that I really could of done better. I started off really strong but towards the end i started slipping with late homework assignments. Hopefully i can do better in the fourth quarter.

Im pretty sure by the end of the third quarter i will have a better grade than i had last quarter. Still i think that we get to much homework, and sometimes that we arent told that we have homeworks. I also think that my grade would have been alot higher if we were allowed to write our homework out instead of typing it. I understand the fact that he is trying to prepare us for college, but im pretty sure in college that everyone doesnt have a printer in college.

I thought I did horrible this quarter. Even though that I have a 79 right now I know that my grade could be so much better. I started off good but when it came around the middle of the quarter, I started to slack off big time. I have made it a goal for the fourth quarter to pull off a high A so I can help my final average out. I know I can do it because with the last test on the realism, naturalism, and naturism, I studied very little and pulled of a 98 on the first part of the test. Another goal that I have is that I will no longer hand in any work late and work my buttocks off in order to achieve the highest grade possible. Even though I don’t have a super A as Broedel said, the advice I can give to everyone would be to do your homework, study hard for tests, and relax your minds because I know some people wait until homeroom to do their homework. I wish I could get this laziness out of me but after acting like this for so many years, it is going to be a hard habit to break.

I feel that I did terrible this quarter. I fell way short of the B i was hoping to get to make up for my bad grade in the second quarter. I did this awful because I did no homework until the very end of the quarter. I leared that althought I do good on the tests and pretty good on the quizzes the homework will make or break you if you choose to do or not do it.

Just like last quarter I managed again to not do my best because I, once again was lazy as hell and never did my homework just like last quarter. And Mr. Cegelski can say the same thing I was very lazy and that screwed me over again and I guess I've never learned yet. So next quarter I'm making a promise to do all my work.

I think this quarter was sufficiently harder than the last two. Quarter one was really easy but this quarter was hard. Most of this quarter was all short stories which I am not good at all. Answering 10 questions on the quiz was the worst part. I failed most of those quizzes. Also the homework we got every night made this quarter harder than the others to. We had to wright 1 page responses on stories that were only a few pages which was the hardest. Also when we had volcab we had one night to do 15 and one time 16 words. I had to change the style my Volcab Words were in because my original way was extra long and time consuming. I also was a little lazy this quarter and turned in many assignment late which I usually never do.

The third quarter was pretty tough for me, there were alot of different projects and assignments in each of my classes that were all due around the same time. Although I had a couple of bad tests grades due to the overload of work in other classes, I was able to compensate for them by alot of studying for the other quizes and tests. Some advice for a student with just average grades like mine and who are starting to slip, actually reading the books and textbooks significantly improve your grades.

Andrew Lewis said...

I think I did great this quarter, and the reason is because i did homework. Getting zeros for assignments kills your grade. Also studying for tests is key to get a good grade.

I thought the third quarter was hard because there was a lot more tests and quizzes,and a lot more information to study. I thought it was overwelming with work. I will try to do better in the fourth quarter.

JP Kuhlman said...

This quarter was significant improvement from my previous quarter two. However i do not think I will end up with the grade that I obtained in quarter one. I missed some homework this quarter but I made it all up. I think I did okay though.

Nick Feurer said...

In the third quarter, I did as well as I did in the second quarter, which is not good. I need to do my homeworks on time and to do them well. I also did not read some of the stories which showed on the quizzes.

I don't think i did so good. I think that I could of done a lot better. The thing I need to do is get better test/quiz scores and keep up with the homework.

Joe Winter said...

I don't believe I did as well as I could have done. I think the downfall of my grade this quarter is partially because of the amount of homework that had been assigned this marking period. I did not do good on any of the tests as good as I thought I had done for this quarter. The quizzes were alright, and the assignments were fine.

I think that I didn't do very well in the third quarter because homework is what killed my grade. The reading responses and such were an example of this.The second quarterwent better for me because I did more of my homework. The third quarter test were not difficult though.

KarlGreen said...

I know i did terrible this quarter. I know that if i actually did my homework on time and turned it in on time i would do alot better. Next quarter im gonna try and do as well as i can to make up for this quarter.

Gangler Bangler said...

I could have done better, but I'm glad I did better than in the first two quarters. I brought my grade up and I'm very proud of myself.
