Development of a Study Skills Packet To Improve Grades in Ninth and Tenth Grade Students.
Fountain, Ruth Lee
A practicum developed a program of study skills to improve grades of ninth and tenth grade students in English and mathematics courses. The project contained three basic components: teacher inservices on study skills techniques in time management, reading textbooks, taking class notes, and preparing for and taking tests; student lessons for development of those skills; and quality circle meetings interacting with and responding to the program. Results showed that students' grade averages in English increased in every course except one; that students' grade averages in mathematics increased in three of five courses; that teachers' positive feelings regarding their ability to assist students toward better grades increased significantly; and that teachers evaluated the managerial style and leadership of the researcher positively. (Five tables of data are included. Seventeen references and eight appendixes--containing teacher attitude survey, leadership survey, calendar and memorandums, and lesson packages on importance of grades, time management, SQ3R, Cornell notetaking, and test taking strategies--are attached.)
