- studying, study skills, how to: How To Study – created by Charles Mangrum and Stephen
Strichart, this site provides a comprehensive repository of resources on study skills. Starting with their study skills assessment, this site contains useful information for students, parents, and teachers – articles, study tips, teaching tips, a variety of assessment tools (I really like the Procastination assessment), and inevitably the fee based class packages (which are by no means cheap). The thing to remember is that there are a lot of useful free resources here, and perhaps you can hit your Principal up for the one’s you’d like to purchase.
- studying, study guides, strategies, study skills: Study Guides and Strategies – the site features
255 study guides on a very wide range of topics (many of which are translated into over 35 different languages) such as memorization, word problems, studying techniques, etc. The guides are geared to middle school and high school. Each guide is succinct and to the point with specific action steps for the user. Nicely done.
- studying, study skills, how to: Study Skills | Howtostudy.org – directed toward college and
university students, this site is loaded with useful information on both general and specific skills. General topics include using graphic organizers, and memory improvement. By specific I mean skills which are subject specific such as a lab report in chemistry, or the “most right” multiple choice questions you would find on a psychology final exam.
til next time… peace and love
