Study Skills Week

Study skills week is upon us. A term that evokes a different reaction in us all. However, in its simplest terms it is about learning, and this is something that we have done since we were born. Now in secondary school we need to look at the quality of the learning that we are doing.  Quality study means we are using an appropriate method of study for us and the subject we are learning. Take time this week to reflect on the quality of your work, are you using the best method, are you eliminating distractions, are you organised? Methods include, repetition, summaries, mind maps, key words sheets, notes, answering questions. Ask yourself what is working well? and, What needs to be improved upon? Be honest with yourself in your answer. Always remember to reflect on the quality of the work you are doing. Best of luck!
