Helping students learn to learn, and to take responsibility for their own education is one of our prime objectives as teachers. These 26 tips can be photocopied as handouts for inclusion in student agendas or notebooks, or used to create a wall poster. They can also serve as discussion starters or writing prompts or mini-lessons when the main lesson has finished with time to spare. Here are a few examples:
Cramming may work in the short term but is not a life skill--would you rather cram before a meeting with the boss or would you rather be prepared?
Knowing facts is not enough--learn to think critically, to analyze, to ask tough questions, to see relationship among the facts and know why they are important.
Procrastination--avoid it! Break large projects into manageable tasks--work a little at a time to achieve your goa.
Don't start from scratch. Use these and the 23 other tips to save time and help your students become the responsible students you know they are or can be. Study skills, all subjects
