Remedial Study Skills/Study Habits Program.
A program for improving study habits and study skills of middle school students was developed. Students were selected to participate in the remedial study skills/study habits program if they were receiving grades below D in two or more academic subjects and if they evidenced average reading development or achievement. The students were tutored by the remedial reading specialist in groups of no more than 10 students for one 45-minute program session per week over an eight-month period. Topics covered in the sessions included keeping a notebook and assignment book, making and using a schedule for study at home, outlining and taking notes on reading material from the content areas, taking notes in class, the SQ3R study method, reference skills, and research reports. Evaluation of the project will be made by comparing the improvement of the students' content area grades wtih the grades of students who would have been selected if the program had existed the year before.
