Presentation Transcript
Teachers must guide students to learn to the best of their ability. Each student will have a different style in which he or she learns the best. In this presentation, I will share with you study skill and reading strategy websites that will be beneficial to students, teachers, and parents.
“The nobles exercise of the mind within doors, and most befitting a person of quality, is study.”~Sir William Ramsey~

Students must have a variety of strategies to be effective in their studying and learning. Teachers should instill in students important cognitive and metacognitve processes such as being able to:

  • Select important ideas and restate them in their own words.
  • Reorganize and elaborate on these ideas.
  • Ask questions concerning the significance of targeted information and ideas.
  • Monitor when you know and when you do not understand.
  • Establish goals and define your task.
  • Evaluate plans and reflect on the strategies you selected.
