Transcript of Study Groups

The Power of Study Groups
Effective study groups involve explaining concepts, arguing about them, figuring out why one person's answer differs from another's, and in the process, you learn more than you ever would have studying by yourself.
The Benefits of Study Groups
Note-taking reinforcement
Sharing talents
Covering more ground
Support system
Guidelines for Getting a Group Together
How many? 4-6
In a larger group, it's easy for someone to get left out, and smaller groups can too easily get off track.
Pick classmates who seem to share your interest in doing well in class. Look for people who stay alert in class, take notes, ask questions, and respond to the teacher's questions.
Hold study group sessions in a place that is free of distractions and that has room to spread out books, and notes.
How long?
Study groups should meet for no more than two to three hours at a time. Having a time limit will help the group focus.
If possible, try to meet on the same day and time each week. Treating the study session as you would other activities helps you to keep to a schedule and ensures that everyone will attend.
Getting the Most Out of a Study Group Session
State objectives or goals.
Be prepared.
Take turns teaching.
Stay on topic.
By supplementing your individual study with a study group, you can reinforce what you've learned, deepen your understanding of complex concepts, and maybe even make a few new friends.
Studying with others in a small group is helpful to everyone because you:
Share Ideas.
Learn from one another.
