Year 7 Study Skills

Last week Dr Prue Salter from Enhanced Learning Educational Services ran a study skills evening with Year 7 parents and students. The evening helped families assess what changes could be made to help students move towards achieving their personal best efficiently and effectively. Families examined the following areas: home study environment, the way they organise and manage their resources, how to work effectively at home and deal with distractions and how to manage the workload in high school. Families also have access to a video how the steps to studying in high school: making study notes, learning the notes by testing yourself, and doing as much practise as possible.

Parents are encouraged to review the slides and handout from the session with students and discuss the main areas identified where changes need to be made. Parents can also find extra study skills tips on the following website: http://studyskillstoptipsparents.com.

All secondary students at our school also have access to a great study skills website to help students develop their skills. Go to www.studyskillshandbook.com.au and enter the username: emanuelschool and the password: 20achieve and start improving your results today!
