Teaching Test-Taking and Note-Taking Skills to Learning Disabled High School Students.
Anderman, Robert C.; Williams, Jane M.
The materials were developed to help prepare eleventh and twelfth graders to be successful in an academic environment when their school history indicated little chance for success. The booklet includes instructional materials to teach test-taking and note-taking, two skills many failing students lack. A syllabus is included for each unit along with class notes, activity sheets, and unit tests with answer keys. The instructional materials are designed for students with a wide range of skill levels. The test-taking unit covers such topics as strategies for answering multiple choice test items, true-false test questions, fill-in-the-blank questions; preparing for tests; and understanding words used in essay questions. The unit on notetaking addresses such aspects as listening skills and notetaking from lectures and written materials. (CL)
