This workshop is for middle school teachers who are frustrated that their students aren’t finding success with their content, and are looking for a simple, actionable plan to integrate study skills without sacrificing instruction time. Your students are at the age where they need to be studying, but they just don’t know how to. We need to equip students with the skills they need to find academic success, and teaching active study strategies is the perfect first step.
Middle school students will gain confidence in their ability to study and find more success with core content, as the teacher incorporates active study strategies into their daily routines, without taking away from instruction time.
As a 6th grade middle school history teacher, I became known in my school as the teacher with high expectations and successful students. The more I was approached about how I helped my students find success, the more I realized it had less to do with my history content, and more to do with the learning skills I was teaching within my lessons. When I was asked by my district to develop a Study Skills Curriculum, I realized it was the integration of these skills within my content that truly helped students find success.
