Effective Study Skills Lead to Better Learning

Some students have no idea about how to study. They wait until the last minute to look over material for an assessment or expect to learn the information through osmosis. However, study skills can be taught, and when it becomes a daily practice, learning is easier.

Effective Study Skills Lead to Better Learning

    This site focuses on visual and kinesthetic learners, better listening techniques, building test-taking confidence, and organization. It also includes a learning style survey which will enable students to learn about how they learn. I have given this survey and students enjoy it.

    Studying requires much more than memorization. Students will enhance their learning when they are motivated, use schedules, have a consistent study location, participate in class, and use memorization tools.

    I love the plethora of graphic organizers and charts for studying on this site. There are an abundance of students who are visual learners and charts are an asset to their learning process.

    Students can learn valuable study and organizational skills not only from their teachers, but also from their peers. Listen to these enthusiastic suggestions for practicing and reviewing skills in a number of subject areas. Students will learn how to detect important information in textbooks (ex. headlines, pictures and graphs), the benefit of studying every day versus cramming and the definition of "smart" as a process rather than a descriptor.

    Reading comprehension is sometimes the reason why students cannot learn about a new topic. However, it isn't because a student cannot read…it is more because the student does not process the ideas behind the words. This video gives tips on reading comprehension and effective time management skills.

    Teachers: have your students take this "Study Skills Assessment Test" - After taking it, they will be able to assess their strengths and weaknesses and set personal goals that can be tracked during the school year.
