Learning and Study Skills
Some examples of learning and study skills are:
"The classroom is the place to learn, and the classroom is the place to listen."
William H Armstrong.
Understanding instructions: know exactly what is required of you. Note taking: write notes in a concise and organised manner. Write down the main ideas, content and information. Listen carefully when a teacher elaborates on important material and then briefly summarize.
Time management: start to manage your time at the beginning of the term. Plot your due dates for assignments, exams, and other important dates on a large calendar. Set some goals and think about how much time it will take to accomplish these goals. Set priorities and be flexible.
Problem solving: this involves logical thinking and effective interpersonal skills.
Preparing for exams: be organised. Make a study schedule. Study in a quiet, comfortable location where distractions and interruptions are minimal.Be sure to eat healthy food, get enough sleep, and take time to exercise and relax.
