If I am in an older classroom I will teach them how to create a weekly planner and plan time to study for test, quizzes, etc. I will do this because I know that distributed practice is much more efficient for memory than massed practice is.
What a beautiful drawing. I love the detail and the concept. Plus, I love drawing portraits because people are just such a blast to draw, so this would be the perfect piece of artwork for me to try and replicate.
