Focus on Study Habits at Home for Middle School Students: A Guide for Parents and Students To Increase Learning at Home.
Georgiady, Nicholas P.; Romano, Louis G.
This booklet is designed to help middle school students and their parents analyze student study habits, plan a study schedule, organize a place to study, and actually study their subjects. Students and parents should analyze a typical day's activities to see how the student spends his or her time, using a chart to see how each hourly (or half-hourly) block of time is spent. A workable study schedule should then be prepared that allows time for all required activities and approximately 3 to 5 hours of study time per week for each subject. Parents and students should select a place for studying that is quiet, well-lit, and comfortable, with access to adequate supplies and reference materials. The actual studying process should be based on the "SQ3R" method: survey, question, read, recite, and review. Students should survey the material they wish to study, refer to chapter questions or headings to develop questions about the material, read the material thoroughly, recite important points as the material is read, and review the main points covered.
