slide4
Patterns involving these factors already exist when students start Year 11
  • To succeed students need to break those patterns to find the time they need.
slide5
The pattern of application needs to be set early
  • The mind and body both get used to the expectation of homework and study
  • Students need time to work out what works best for them particularly with study.
homework and study
HOMEWORK AND STUDY
  • Are different things
  • Different focus at different times.
homework
HOMEWORK

- Teacher directed

- Assessment tasks

- Follow up from class work

- Research/ reading prior to class work

study
STUDY
  • is generally student directed although teachers often give guidance about what and how to study
  • Is a constant process of revision but is more concentrated near major exam times when less homework is given.
  • If students are used to doing homework then that time can be transferred to study as required
how much time
HOW MUCH TIME?
  • Different patterns of study demand different efforts
  • Even less demanding patterns need 10 hours a week at least
  • More demanding patterns 20 hours or more a week.
slide10
That last slide was serious………………..if your son or daughter isn’t working consistently they are unlikely to achieve their best and
  • Unlikely to change when the reach Year 12.
general guidelines
GENERAL GUIDELINES
  • Spot they can be uninterrupted
  • Music works for some but not all students
  • An hour without a break is generally as long as students can focus
  • Short breaks can revitalize as can changing topics eg English to Maths.
visual cues
VISUAL CUES
  • Most of our students are strong visually so use the strength
  • Formulas , quotes, key words should be up in prominent positions.
  • Repetition helps get things into long term memory which is crucial
study is not the same for everyone
STUDY IS NOT THE SAME FOR EVERYONE
  • Students need to find what works best
  • ‘reading over’ is generally the least effective
  • Teaching someone else is generally the most effective
the most important thing
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING
