Getting Organized

GO! Get Organized – Students .

Do  your students know the difference between reading and studying?

Francis Robinson, Effective Study,  (Harper & Row, 1970),  makes the point that self-taught skills in every field are always inefficient, e.g., self-taught swimmers or typists, when compared to persons taught the best methods. Similarly, in the study-skill field, research results can be used to design new, higher-level study skills that are even more  effective than those used by the best untrained students.

Effective study skills and student performance have been shown to be positively correlated for  both high school, and college students (including students suffering from ADHD ).   Many students think that if they simply read an assignment, they have learned something.  We can show you how to  impart a study skills method that can organize their classwork and homework assignments.

Do your students understand the best methods for retaining information?

Learning styles vary, so you can assist your students in determining the mnemonic devices that best suit their particular learning styles.
