Practice, Practice, Practice: How to Improve Students' Study Skills
Rozalski, Michael E.
Beyond Behavior, v17 n2 p17-23 Win 2008
Generally, teachers are good students. Most know how to successfully address a variety of academic tasks demands. Many know how to compensate for any personal weaknesses they have with specific skills. Sometimes teachers are such good students that they forgot what it was like to struggle to learn something. Unfortunately, students with emotional and behavioral problems are constantly reminded of how difficult learning is. These students typically lack basic study skills, including listening, notetaking, thinking and analysis, memory, and test-taking skills. The development of these skills is crucial if students are to succeed academically. The focus of this article will be to provide some simple strategies for developing listening, note-taking, thinking and analysis, memory, and test-taking skills that can be integrated into the regular classroom curriculum.
