Geography Homework Help: 5 Tips For Beginners

Geography used to be perceived as a subject for geeks. A means into secondary school teaching and not much else. Now, with borders in war-zones changing on an alarming basis and the world as we know it is changing in the blink of an eye, Geography has become a subject of choice for many more students. With that in mind, it can at times be a challenging subject; the homework can seem never-ending and boring. So, what is the best way to tackle that problematic geography assignment? Hopefully, my 5 tips for beginners will help guide you through the maze.

Prepare your workspace

If you are new to college, then setting up a work space at home will stand you in good stead for all of your assignment, not just your geography. Choose an area of your home that is quiet and free from distractions and make sure that you have all of the resources, including text books, etc. easily to hand. Try to avoid shared spaces. Your workspace should be free of clutter and mess.

Manage your time

Strangely enough, going to college can prepare you for the real world. Learning to manage and prioritize your time is a key life skill that once ingrained will never leave you. Don’t be tempted to leave everything to the last minute. If you have two weeks to hand in your assignment, then make sure you start it on the very first week. No-one is saying that you have to suck up to your lecturer and do it the very first day, but it will help if you can get in the habit of doing it earlier rather than later.

Research first, write up later

If your homework requires an element of research, then do this first. Whether that is online or via more traditional methods. Research and make notes, and save the write up for a later date. Doing your homework in stages will make it seem like less of a chore.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help

There are no prizes for failing to hand it in, or saying you didn’t understand. You are not in high school anymore. You are a grown-up, so start behaving like one. If you don’t understand what is required of you, then ask one of your fellow students, or even your lecturer. Your tutor gets paid to help you succeed. Put them to work!

Reward yourself once it is done

Having a small treat to look forward to at the end of a hard homework session can be just the pick me up that you need. It doesn’t have to have a monetary value. A nice long soak in a candle-lit bubble bath will suffice. Get in the habit of rewarding success, and you will develop a positive mental attitude.
