The Basic Study Skills Curriculum Guide for Grades 7-9.
Prince George's County Public Schools, Upper Marlboro, MD.
This guide has been designed for use in teaching study skills to junior high school students, grades seven through nine. It contains lessons developed and refined over a three-year period in the skills areas of listening, scheduling and task analysis, memory, notetaking, and using a textbook. Each skills area is developed in the context of a kindergarten through grade twelve developmental sequence and is the basis for developing lessons in the subject areas of English language arts, social studies, science, and mathematics. The lessons are offered in a standard format, identifying the skill, lesson, content area, instructional materials to be used, possible ways of pacing the lesson, awareness of habit status, student predisposition to change, direct teaching suggestions and techniques, practice to competence, and habit establishment and modification. Special features of the guide include a study skills calendar denoting a suggested order of skills presentation; a letter to students; a teacher information sheet delineating some key words, key ideas, and possible problems for each study skill; and lessons for each skill that have been developed directly from a study skills activity sequence.
