Thursday, June 24 2021 @ 11:00AM - Thursday, July 29 2021 @ 12:30PM EDT| $200.00
Good study habits and techniques are critical to help students learn more efficiently, feel more academically confident, persevere through challenges, and ultimately do their best. Sometimes, it’s easy to assume that learners already have these skills intact. The truth is that they sometimes don’t; many learners might not actually know how to study for tests or how to keep their binders organized. While these skills can be a challenge for many students, they are skills that can be improved over time.
This class will focus on the study skills that today’s students need in order to succeed in an academic setting (of any kind). The students will learn organization, time management, note-taking, test-taking strategies, work prioritization, and how to study. It does not matter how hard you study if you are not studying in an effective manner. This course teaches kids how to study smarter, not harder.
By the end of the course:
- Students will be able to effectively set-up and organize folders, notebooks, and binders.
- Students will be able to set-up and utilize a calendar and planner.
- Students will be able to take complete and informative notes.
- Students will be able to make their own study-guide.
- Students will be able to effectively manage their time.
- Students will be able to prepare for and successfully take tests using the strategies that they have learned

This Study Skills Class is pure gold! My daughter has found bits and pieces from this class to help her work on being organizes, manage her time, and figure out her priorities in her lessons. This is the one class where she understands how studying is a work in process. Every middle school aged student should take this!
