Product Description

The 56 lessons in Essential Study Skills (What Every Student Should Know) will teach your students to “work smarter, not harder.” Now, in addition to the usual print-out PDF option, you and your students can use the interactive digital option for all 56 lessons in Google Classroom. You can edit any pages, and your students can complete these activities on a laptop or tablet. Now this is distance learning that makes sense!

Often, the reason why students fail to achieve their academic potential is not because they don’t try hard enough, but because they have never learned the basic study skills necessary for success.

  • Students who master these skills will spend less time and accomplish more during homework and study time.
  • Their test study will be more productive, and they will get better grades.
  • Reading comprehension and vocabulary will improve.
  • Their writing will make more sense, and essays will be easier to plan and complete. They will memorize better and forget less.
  • Their schoolwork will seem easier and will be much more enjoyable.
  • Lastly, students will feel better about themselves as learners and will be more motivated to succeed.

Essential Study Skills is the perfect curriculum for substitute lesson plans, rainy day activities, study hall, or study skill, life skill, advocacy/advisory, opportunity program classes.

The easy-to-follow lesson format of 1. Personal Assessment 2. Study Skill Lesson and 3. Reflection is ideal for self-guided learning and practice. The 1. Personal Assessment and 3. Reflection use the same format and directions, so once students are shown how to do these procedures, no further explanation is needed. Perfect for independent work and for substitute lessons! Plus, the book provides helpful online links to add to the study skill lessons.
