Many students can probably take the computer-based test eventually. You often don't need to attend an adult education class. See if you can "create a school at home" and be disciplined ... sit in front of the workbook four hours per day.
If you get up early and complete at least two exercises per day, you will eventually get through the GED course book ... and you will have the power of the GED inside you.
Focus on the BIG PICTURE. Think about what will happen when you get past the GED.
(1) Develop a PERSONAL LEARNING PLAN.
Know YOURSELF. What moves you? What is important to you?
Complete these forms.
PERSONALITY TEST 72 questions ... It's not a perfect test. There is only the cost of your time. The test is a start on your road to learning more about yourself.
See HighTechHigh and the portfolios of those students. You can make a digital portfolio using SITES GOOGLE.
What can you do? What have you written? What are your skills?
(3) BUILD A RÉSUMÉ
(4) Build your Personal Digital Library -- Show us what you respect.
What is important to you?
What do you want us to click on?
READ WIDELY. Learn about learning. Here are some links.
(4a) Watch 5 minutes with Dr. Richard E. Clark when he explains the "information abundance"
(4b) Too many screens? probably not.
(4c) Watch DAN HEATH explain how we get the energy to change: See it, so we can FEEL it, and get the energy to make the change.
What time do you get up and what do you do in the early morning?

Learn phrases in other languages
Memorize poems (lyrics, too) and use the lyrics to change our mood
Learn to speak "International English" --
Adjust your pronunciation and your words to fit the audience. If the person is from Latin America, you might need to explain "forbidden" and you might use instead "prohibited."
The ULTIMATE GOAL of the GED <<<
THE DAILY WORK
1. click on something that I have pointed to. (Can you leave a comment and a like?)
2. Every day... please write at least one paragraph about SOMETHING that has annoyed you or about a problem that you sees in the world or something BEAUTIFUL that you notice... Why did you notice it? What action will you take to share that beauty or work to fix that problem?
Your writing is the support work that will make the GED possible ....
Write to me
I was taught that writing often (at least once a week) can help improve my ability to think. If you agree, then let's get started.
AVOID: "This is a good site" Avoid using "good" "Bad" "and "I like this movie." Explain why.
We are here to serve. It's not about you and it's not about me. "That server didn't give me good service." "I feel disrespected." "I didn't deserve that!"
My life could be worse. I'm not going to complain.
How can I help you?
A director of a school gave nine rules. Here they are:
Guide to Conduct
Consider the comfort and convenience of other people. This is the hallmark of courtesy and good manners.
Don't make unnecessary or exaggerated noise.
Don't draw attention to yourselves. Never be loud or vulgar.
Show restraint in your dress.
See that your clothes are neat and clean and appropriate to the occasion.
Don't loiter or lounge about or look sloppy.
Always make way for others and defer to older than yourself.
Notice if anyone else is in difficulties and if you think you can be of service, offer quietly to help.
Show respect to everyone you meet, regardless of their social position, nationality, color or religion. JohnCorlette.com
It's not about me and it's not about you. Let's focus on making an older person's life better.
(a) Call an older person who lives alone and give some time.
(b) Interview that person. Use the StoryCorps system and ask interesting questions.
In the larger view, isn't it great to be alive?
It's probably better where you are right now than where this kid is.

I need more hits on my websites and youtube channels. You have the power of one: The power of one click, one like, one follow, one comment. Take the time to join www.YourNetImpact.com and I'll make time to get you through the GED.
We are here to serve each other.
THIS COURSE IS NOT FREE: Your time is needed and you must commit to these 12 ideas by Dr. Amen. FOLLOW THESE RULES by Dr. Daniel Amen
1. LOVE YOUR BRAIN
2. INCREASE THE BRAIN’S RESERVE
Anything you do that harms how your brain decreases its reserve.
Living a brain healthy life will increase your brain’s reserve and your ability to deal with the inevitable stresses that come your way. The rest of these prescriptions will be geared toward increasing your brain’s reserve.
3. PROTECT YOUR BRAIN
4. STOP POISONING YOUR BRAIN
5. PROTECT YOUR MEMORY
6. GOOD SLEEP IS ESSENTIAL TO THE HEALTH OF YOUR BRAIN
7. LEARN BRAIN HEALTHY WAYS TO DEAL WITH PAIN
8. YOU NEED A BRAIN HEALTHY DIET
Lean protein, such as turkey or chicken; low glycemic, high fiber carbohydrates, which means carbohydrates high in fiber that do not raise your blood sugar, such as whole grains and green leafy vegetables; and healthy fats that contain omega three fatty acids, found in foods such as tuna, salmon, avocados and walnuts. Since the brain is 85% water, anything that dehydrates you is bad for the brain, such as alcohol, caffeine, excess salt or not drinking enough fluids. Also, drink plenty of water to keep yourself well hydrated.
9. PHYSICAL EXERCISE
It is literally the fountain of youth because it boosts blood flow to the brain, plus it increases chemicals that are important for learning and memory and stimulating the growth of new brain cells. Thirty minutes 3 or 4 times a week is all you need. If you don’t know what to do, walk fast, like you’re late.
10. MENTAL EXERCISE.
11. NOTICE WHAT YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR LIFE, A LOT MORE THAN WHAT YOU DON’T.
12. NOTICE WHAT YOU LOVE ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE, A LOT MORE THAN WHAT YOU DON’T.
See the FULL LIST and give Dr. Amen some of your time and clicks.
