Effective Study Strategies for Every Classroom 7-12

Teach your students the study strategies they need to improve academic performance and achieve school success. This book offers 29 easy-to-follow lessons that can correct poor study habits and make learning easier for every student. Use in a study skills course or in a reading class. The lessons are ideal for summer school sessions or for any student who was never taught how to learn.

Several strategies are presented to master each of four essential skills that every student needs to know; ie. note-taking, summarizing, researching and test-taking. Skills can be taught as stand-alone activities or blended seamlessly into existing curricula. Each lesson follows the same structured format, and the authors offer talking points to help you introduce the skill, explain the objective, and guide students through the activities. Suggestions on how to summarize the lesson and generalize the skill to other academic areas are provided. An enclosed CD has each lesson plan's overheads, worksheets, homework assignments, articles, and other support materials in pdf format.

The lessons build on each other. Examples are:

  • Using signal words
  • Finding main ideas
  • Identifying supporting details
  • Creating concept maps
  • Separating facts and opinions
  • Using different references
  • Doing efficient searches on the Internet
