Making the Grade: Increasing Intermediate Students' Spelling Test Scores through the Improvement of Study Skills.
Weiner, Michele S.
A study skills program was developed and implemented to improve spelling grades while incorporating new study skill techniques in a multi-ethnic and multicultural elementary school. A target group of eight fifth-grade students who lacked these skills was established. The program contained five basic strategies for increasing study skills and academic achievement: organizing and time management, note taking, establishing goals, guidelines and responsibilities, parental involvement, and increased academic achievement by working in a "buddy" system. Success was measured by comparing results of pretests and posttests, along with parental survey and involvement. All the program objectives were met, with the target group improving dramatically in all areas. (Appendixes include assessment materials, analysis of assessment data, parental survey, and information that was distributed to students and parents.) (Author/RS)
