Subject: Social Work
What are some of the driving tenets of social work?
Social workers seek to improve the lives of individuals they come in contact with as well as improving the overall condition of human beings. We work at micro and macro levels constantly. We also work to help people discover their best life by highlighting their own strengths and building upon them toward self-sufficiency and improved health.

What helps with organizing oneself and improving data retention?
A lot of this depends upon the person. Most people need to have a calendar, whether it is on paper or through an application on an electronic device (like a phone, tablet, or laptop). These can be used to stay on top of due dates. Also breaking up large projects into bite sized pieces is incredibly helpful, preventing students from becoming overwhelmed. Data retention again depends upon the person. But usually steadily reviewing new information until it becomes second nature and then adding on newer information and reviewing the combination improves overall retention. This can be done through flash cards or outlines.
