Improving Organizational/Study Skills in High School Students.
Roeck, Glen P.
A program was designed to improve the organizational and study skills of high school freshmen attending a remedial world geography class in a suburban area surrounding a large midwestern city. The target population included special education students, students identified as at-risk, and others who had poor placement test scores. Data analysis revealed that many of these students demonstrated significant deficiencies in organizational and study skills. A review of solution strategies suggested that organizational and study skills training is effective when directly connected to content instruction. This program included pre- and post-evaluations of organizational study skills. Survey data reviewed following program implementation of the notebook system showed moderate assistance for the targeted students. In addition, the results demonstrated that students' ability to maintain the organization of their notebooks improved over time. Appended are the two student surveys and corresponding results, the parent survey and results, and a sample notebook table of contents. (Contains 17 references.) (JDM)
