A Study of Students' Lack of Study and Organizational Skills with Middle School and High School Students.
Bausch, Amy; Becker, Kim
A program was undertaken to teach organizational and study skills to middle and high school students. The targeted population consisted of sixth grade students in a social studies class and ninth grade students in a world geography class. The schools are located in a middle-to-lower class suburban community near a large midwestern city. An organizational checklist, a student survey, and a student organization and study skills test evidenced the lack of study and organizational skills by students. Analysis of probable cause data indicated that teachers do not teach organizational and study skills for a variety of reasons. Probable causes included the inclusion of special needs students in regular classroom settings without the proper support and a lack of parental support. Solution strategies involved the direct teaching of study skills and organizational strategies. Post intervention data indicated little change in the students' awareness of study and organizational skills. It suggests that the reasons for the lack of change could be a function of the data collection tools used, or the short time period allowed for intervention. The student survey, pre/post test, and organizational checklist are appended. (Contains 24 references.) (JDM)
