How To Help Children Succeed in School. The Family Forum Library.
Dreilinger, Marilyn; Kerner, Ron
This booklet provides parents with insights as to what study skills are needed for successful learning and to illustrate their role as encouragers, motivators, and guides. It also provides parents with a review of the study skills students must use in order to improve their ability to learn. The ultimate aim of a study skills program is to develop responsible lifelong learners, responsible youngsters who take charge of their own education. Specific areas of discussion present ways parents can build interest in schoolwork, the strategies they can use to develop homework and study skills in their children, and what parents can do to help their children become better readers and writers. The concluding section examines test-taking and skills that are needed for test preparation, especially time management and reviewing the material the test will cover. A list of organizations is provided that can be contacted for more information on study skills, reading, writing, and other curriculum areas. (GLR)
