Study Skills Throughout the Curriculum: Steps to Success.
Gaus, Paula J.
Study skills instruction is notably absent from the content area classrooms that are their natural home. This situation can change if reading teachers work to implement eight steps to a successful study skills program: (1) listen to teachers and students who know best which study skills should be emphasized; (2) respond by arranging inservice workshops for content area teachers emphasizing ways to teach students the necessary study skills; (3) provide practical tools for solving specific content area study skills problems; (4) lighten the load, reminding teachers that study skills instruction now will make learning and teaching easier the rest of the year and in the future; (5) elicit cooperation by encouraging teachers to incorporate study skills objectives into their written curriculum goals, rather than stringently assigning them; (6) encompass the entire school in the program and make available reference works, consultants, and a conspicuous commitment to inservice education; (7) share successes and failures; and (8) experiment with new instructional techniques until the program develops and improves.
