Program Content of Time management With increasing pressure on getting more things done in less amount of time, it is becoming more important than ever to decide which activities deserve a timeslot in your agenda. Managing time becomes easier when what you do makes sense in relation to why you do it.
Joan Sedita Introduction Just as a carpenter needs the right tools such as a saw and hammer and basic skills such as how to measure and cut wood to frame a house, students need the right tools such as notebooks and assignment pads and basic study skills such as reading and note-taking skills to be successful in school.
We all know students who finish college with no formal study skills training. These students have problem-solving abilities which enable them to develop independently organization and study strategies. They can create their own systems for organizing, processing, and comprehending what they read or hear in class; planning homework and long-term assignments; studying for tests; and determining effective test-taking strategies.
Other students, however particularly those with learning disabilities need direct, systematic instruction to develop these skills.
These students can learn study skills, but they need specific instruction and sufficient practice to do so. Through my work with students with learning disabilities over the past twenty-five years, I have developed a flexible study skills model that can be taught in tutorials and small groups, as well as incorporated into regular class curricula.
Parts of the model can also be used by you, as a parent, to help your child become an independent learner. A study skills model The first part of the model addresses organization strategies for notebooks, materials, and assignments; study space; and time.
The second part addresses three "foundation" study skills: The final part of the model combines the foundation skills for building textbook, testing, and research and report writing skills.
The portions of the model which are most useful for parents as they work with their children are Organization strategies Reading and listening for main ideas Note-taking skills Suggestions for helping your child with these skills are included below.
Organization strategies The Master Notebook System The Master Notebook System helps students keep paperwork and materials organized and in one place, locate important papers, and refrain from carrying around unnecessary clutter.
It also helps students prepare for tests because they compile and summarize work weekly. The system has three parts: Working notebook Reserve accordion file Reference notebook Teachers or parents can help students not only set up the system but also transfer material from the working notebook to the reserve accordion file on a regular basis.
Working notebook The working notebook is the daily notebook your child takes to class. It holds all the papers and information needed each day.
Any three-ring binder can serve as a working notebook; the nylon zippered type tends to last longer. This is important, because if the items are not attached to the notebook, they will get lost in backpacks or left at home or school.
Two medium-size notebooks with two or three subjects in each is an alternative to one large notebook. Morning classes might be placed in one, and afternoon classes might be placed in another.
For younger children i.
Whichever alternative noted above that you choose, the important thing is that on a daily basis, your child should date, three-hole punch, and file any of his school papers under the appropriate divider for each subject.
Your child should also note assignments in detail in his assignment book. Reserve accordion file The reserve accordion file is for filing completed work and material no longer needed for class.
It provides a single place to organize and store finished work. It also keeps the working notebook from getting too full. On a regular basis, preferably at the end of each week, your child should remove all notes, homework, and other papers not needed for class the next week and clip them together.
Your child should then review the material, make a list of the main points covered in class that week, and write a summary in his own words. The next step is to attach the list and summary to the clipped-together work and to store the packet in a pocket of the accordion file.This publication is about how to help people to deal with conflicts that are undermining or disrupting natural resource management, impeding development, and causing outbreaks of violence.
