I have a student who is VERY bright. However, she races through work, doesn't pay attention to detail/all of the parts, etc., which then in turn effects her grades. While she is getting As and Bs, parents want to know strategies to help her bring up her grades since she is so bright. The student is diagnosed with ADHD and is on medication for it. She's very "scattered brained". Any ideas that might help, please share!

My favorite strategy for this is to take a file folder and cut it in thirds or fourths and have the student complete a section at a time. It also helps for ADD/ADHD kids who get overwhelmed with the amount of work on a page.

Alternately, you could give her part of an assignment, have her complete it and then give her another part and another part.
