"My computer deleted the WHOLE paper..." "My computer didn't save it..." "By mistake, I posted it on Facebook, and I can't get it back into Word format..."
Excuses – Most teachers have heard them all. Furthermore, students use excuses to take the blame from themselves and put it on fate or someone else. Although excuses may seem "real" to the student, the fact is they have not faced the situation and taken responsibility for doing what was asked of them. How to do the work and do it on time is precisely what this book is about. If you want your students to learn to study, this book is for you.
All students learn differently. How can we help them all? How to Study is a choose-your-own-adventure guide for any and all students seeking improvement. After determining their learning type, diagnostic tools help students identify their own study problems. Students are then guided to specific sections for targeted help.
You can use it one-on-one with specific students, in small groups, or with your entire class.
How to Study presents strategies for:
- Developing an effective studying plan
- Improving concentration at home and in class
- Avoiding the pitfalls of procrastination
- Getting organized
- Developing note taking skills
- Managing stress inside and outside of the classroom
- Improving test grades
- Reducing and eliminating careless mistakes
- Navigating the library effectively
- Researching and writing papers
- Using the Internet for research
Built around the idea that not all students learn in the same way, How to Study is an essential tool for improving the basic organizational skills needed to be a successful student.
