Many middle school (and unfortunately even high school!) students are new to the concept of studying. I always use this original PowerPoint to shed light on WHY it is so important to study by highlighting how the brain processes new information. This 13 slide PPT explains why it is important to study and HOW to study. I have my slides labeled "How to Study History", but it is editable and the study techniques are useful for every subject! Check out my preview for a great sample!
