Pam L in Mid Tenn Posted September 25, 2012 Share Posted September 25, 2012 Has anyone taken a week from regular lessons to concentrate on note taking, reviewing for a test, memorization skills, and other "study" skills? What did you do? How did you structure the week? I am working more hours this semester than I had originally planned. I do not have time ( or energy after work) for detailed oral narrations and discussions. I'm getting some resistance, okay, maybe a lot of resistance, to doing end of section/ end of chapter/ textbook written assignments. The boys ARE reading the material, but many days do not finish the written assignments because they are flat and boring. I've got several "study skills" resources including Study Power, Teaching Co. videos, and "study" sections of various textbooks. I'm thinking about taking a week and concentrating on the methods of learning. We'll use our current curriculum, but I'm afraid we'll "get behind" in the books and lessons. Is it better to stop now, learn to study well, and then continue on using the newly acquired skills? OR Should be plow through the lessons as currently assigned to stay on track? Because of my work schedule we really are not getting everything done now. The thought of adding in something else seems overwhelming. We could not add "study skills" to the current plan. Something will have to drop out (and we are only doing essentials now as it is!) if I add in anything. Thanks in advance, Pam Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
