Study skills for college-bound students

Special summer program. For students grade 8 and up.

(Sky Mountain Charter School approved)

Study skills for college students and college-bound students -- how to memorize facts, take tests, and turn out papers and reports -- get the best grades with minimum discomfort and wasted effort.

Taught by two college professors, this course covers the basic tools that simplify the study process and make it most effective. Students will learn that memorization, test-taking and paper writing can be made simple and easy. Most students spend far more time and effort than is necessary -- then, only after years of study, learn that there are shortcuts. We start with the shortcuts.

Class is composed of three modules: memorization, test taking, and paper writing.

Memorization:
This is a skill easily acquired and applied in many subjects. It is perhaps the most useful and crucial skill for success in the classroom. Though many classes claim to require critical thinking, the mass-production assessment and grading techniques used often measure only acquired knowledge, something easy to master with little effort.
Test taking:
Objective tests often measure test-taking skills more than subject matter knowledge. Understanding how to manage time, how such tests are constructed, how to eliminate wrong answers and how to determine when to guess are very important.
Paper writing:
Understanding the difference between plagiarism and research is the first step. The stigma of plagiarism often keeps students from reading and studying good papers from which they could learn a great deal. Students will learn how write creatively, how best to recognize, research and reference good resource material and how to expand upon their own ideas and concepts.
WHEN: Starts June 25, 2010. Meets at EIE Fridays 9:00 A.M. - 1:00 P.M. with two short breaks.

COST: $200 for all three modules. Modules may be repeated at no extra charge.
