Teaching study skills to students is a great way to show them how they can take more ownership of their learning. Study skills are inherently linked with executive functioning skills. Students can benefit greatly from improving skills with planning, organization, self-control, attention, flexibility, perseverance, and more. Most importantly, teach students that they can often improve these skills over time with practice and hard work.
- Study skills are not subject-specific – they are generic and can be used when studying any area.
- Students need to practice and develop their study skills.
- Study skills are transferable and relate closely to the type of skills that employers look for – for example, organizational skills, time management, prioritizing, learning how to analyze, problem-solving, and the self-discipline that is required to remain motivated.
