This resource gets students thinking about strategies they used for an assessments, strategies to use next time to improve results and what was easy and difficult to recall on any given assessment. It is good for tracking results, monitoring progress, thinking critically about learning and good for motivation overall. It helps students take charge of their learning and determine what works and what doesn’t when they study. It will help students clearly identify strengths and weaknesses in content, including any gaps in knowledge, and it makes them accountable as they move through the course. Using this resource, you should start hearing students discuss strategies for further review. I always say my approach to learning is like a diet – you have to mix it up to keep motivated and get results! More specifically, this resource includes:
• A list of study methods with boxes to check off strategies employed, results on two assessments, and boxes to check strategies to use next time.
• A key as an example to model to students.
• A checklist of multiple intelligences with an explanation.
• Blank spaces for useful websites and good vocabulary to integrate into studying and assessments.
• Boxes to write information that is easy to recall as well as knowledge gaps.
• Bookmarks of a checklist of ways to learn for easy access and reference when studying.
