Study Skills Workshop
Presented by:
Ms. Spencer
AVID Instructor

How badly do you want to be successful???
You learn to speak by speaking, to swim by swimming , to run by running, to drive by driving, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to study by studying.
~Anatole France (paraphrased)

Activity
Note Taking: Cornell Notes
What is your learning style?…
And why should you care?
Good Study Skills Begin With the End in Mind:
Howard Gardner's Theory
Learning styles are simply different approaches or ways of learning.

Once you figure out the best way you learn, you can come up with the best study strategies that fit your learning style.
Note Taking:Mind Mapping
Multiple Intelligences
1. Get up and stretch
2. Get into groups
3. Take notes on video

The Tactile/Kinesthetic Learner
Characteristics:
The “Do-er”
Needs to touch, handle, manipulate materials and objects, especially while studying or listening
Talks with hands
Good at drawing designs
Often doodles while listening, thus processing information
Good at “hands-on” activities
May find it hard to sit still for long periods
May become distracted by their need for activity and exploration
Take frequent study breaks and vary your activities
Make studying more physical—i.e. work at a standing desk, chew gum, pace while memorizing, read while on an exercise bike, mold a piece of clay, squeeze a tennis ball
Use bright colors to highlight reading material
Play music in the background while you study
Use spatial note taking techniques such as mind mapping
Study Strategies:
Another thing to consider…
Do you prefer studying alone or in a group?
Studying Alone vs. In a Group
Pros and
Cons
Individual/Solitary
Collaborative/Groups
More control for you (i.e. time, style, location, etc.)
Use your vocabulary
Responsibility rests with you (i.e. self-testing, procrastination, distraction)
No assistance in filling in knowledge gaps
Only your perspective, your style, your consistent mistakes
Get a new perspective on material
Reduce procrastination
Fill in knowledge gaps
Cover more material in less time
Pre-planning/Coordination required
Can have distractions
Reduced independence
Studying Tips
Individual
Collaborative
Where
you study matters!

Physical preparation
is as important as mental preparation!
Clear communication
is vital!
Establish collaborative goals to increase focus
Also

to promote interdependence
Actively recruit
motivated collaborators
Be conscious
of collaborator characteristics including size, learning style, and ability

What do you want to succeed at in high school?

How are you going to do this?

Let's try it out:
What are your study habits?
On a scale of 1-10 (1=worst, 10=best),
what would you rate your study habits?
Why?
What type of distractions are you faced with
when studying?
Where do you study and what type of
environment is it?
When you have to take an exam, do you feel
comfortable and
prepared or nervous and unprepared?
Why?

Time is a Non Renewable Resource

Once it is gone, it is gone.

You will never see this moment again.

Putting off = Anxiety/Stress
Stop “thinking about” the assignment and
TAKE ACTION!
Break down large tasks into manageable smaller tasks



List everything you need or want to get done.


Set your priorities.
A - Must be done
B – Should be completed if at all possible
C – Low priority, completed only after doing A’s
and B’s

Prioritize tasks within each group.

86,400

What does this number mean?


Sometimes we just don’t realize how much time we spent in non
productive ways.

On weekdays students spent TWICE as much time on leisure activities as on studying.

On weekends students spent SIX TIMES as much time on leisure activities as on studying
.

Binder

Backpack

Estimate time needed
Library research – estimate and add
2 hours
Count back from due date
Consult your calendar
Use the time


Ask yourself:

Will the way I am spending my time contribute to my
academic success?

Do I need to make adjustments?
Which areas will require more of my time?

Am I willing to make the necessary
changes to achieve academic success?

Yesterday is History

Tomorrow’s a Mystery
