Tips for Being a Successful Student: A Handbook for Students and Teachers.
Williams, Jane M.
This student-oriented instructional booklet provides strategies for students for notebook organization, time management, note-taking, reading and highlighting assignments, homework completion, and test-taking. The booklet's first section, "Preparing for Classes," offers tips for keeping a notebook, an assignment sheet, a calendar, a daily and weekly time schedule, and suggestions for school supplies. Three reproducible assignment sheet formats and a form for listing and prioritizing "Things to Do Today" are also provided. The second section, "During Classes," suggests active-learning behaviors and teacher-pleasing classroom behaviors; presents techniques for taking clear, comprehensive lecture notes; and includes a reproducible form for note-taking. The third section, "After Classes--Homework," presents 15 recommendations for successfully completing homework. This section presents the SQ3R approach (Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Review) to studying textbooks and gives pointers for critically reading and marking materials. The last section, "Test-Taking," offers strategies for studying for, and answering, four types of objective test questions (multiple choice, true/false, matching, and fill-in-the-blank) and two types of subjective test questions (short answer and essay).
