Help Your Children SOAR to Academic Success
Kiewra, Kenneth A.
Parenting for High Potential, v8 n1 p10-14 Mar 2019
The one thing that most students have in common is that they are not taught note taking and study strategies in school or home. However, it is essential that parents and educators spend time teaching gifted children how to organize their lessons, how to analyze the material, and how to study. Research demonstrates that learning is enhanced when students incorporate graphic organizers and other tools into their note taking and studying to reveal relationships among concepts. The author presents a method he calls SOAR--Select, Organize, Associate, and Regulate--a framework and methodology he created that enables students to make critical connections, apply critical thinking skills, and ultimately, understand concepts versus rote memorization.
