Academic Skills Mini-Module Tools for Achieving Success at NSU. Series I: The Role of the Student in Drop Out Intervention.
Demery, Marie
This Academic Skills Mini-Module is one of the first documented efforts designed for encouraging students to prevent themselves from dropping out of college. It is also a reflection of research findings which maintain that any methods used to help students to improve their academic performance will also minimize attrition rates. Academic performance is a major factor in college attrition, irrespective of sex and racial origin. For that reason, the Academic Skills Mini-Module has been designed to be used as a workshop, an independent study, and a reference. It consists of 10 components providing information or self-assessment exercises: (1) academic skills; (2) goal-setting; (3) time management; (4) note-taking; (5) SQ3R Study Method (for reading assignments--Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Review); (6) test-taking; (7) summary and self-assessment; (8) dropout prevention checklist; (9) academic skills workshop evaluation/feedback form; and (10) bibliography. The results of a series of tryouts indicate that this mini-module, although created initially for college students, can be modified and used on all educational levels. (GL)
