Teach your students Test Prep and Test Taking Strategies to help them find success.

This file is Chapter 6 – Taking Tests from my 9 week Study Skills Course Curriculum - you can purchase the entire Study Skills Course Curriculum, HERE.

I first developed my series of study skill instruction when I was asked by my administrator to teach a 9 week Study Skills course to 6th graders. I taught my course for 3 years. Two of my colleagues also taught the course, using this curriculum that I developed.


+ Teacher tips for discussion & activities

+ 8 page packet of activities that cover:

* Different types of test anxiety – what it is.

* How to overcome test anxiety.

* How procrastination increases test anxiety.

* Test taking tips and strategies.

* What are study guides and what you should do with them.

+ It would be very easy to simply print off this file, hand it to students and ask them to complete it. And they probably would, very quickly even. But this would not be very beneficial to the majority of students.

++ This file is most effective when students are guided through it by the teacher.


+ While I developed the course for the needs of 6th graders, this is an ideal course for students who are about to enter middle school, or have just arrived in middle school. Studies have shown that developing strong study habits at this age is ideal for strong study habits in the future.

+ You can use these lessons with your homeroom, advisory class, or study hall students.

+ Use as a mini lesson.

+ Use to support your students with the skills they need to find success.


+ Study skills are just as important as any other academic skill. Perhaps more so, because without them, learning is a struggle. Set your students up for success with the complete Study Skills Curriculum.

+ Study skills are a crucial part of academic success. But not everyone has the time to teach an entire course or stand-alone lessons...

If that is true for you, then I strongly recommend you learn how to integrate study skills into your daily curriculum and instruction with: The Study Skill Essentials Training Program for Teachers.
