Teaching Tip #32

Improving Study Habits

"One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.” --Carl Jung

Want your students study habits to improve?

Of course you do, but as we all know this can be difficult.

Here is a simple tip:

Have the students keep track of their own study habits. At the end of every test have a few simple questions such as:

1. How long did you study?

2. How often did you study?

3. What times of day did you study?

These are just examples, I am sure you could come up with 3-5 questions that you think your students should focus on about their own study habits.

Of course, these questions won’t actually be worth any points on the test, but it will make students stop and think for a few minutes about their own study habits and what they need to do to improve.

Give it a try…
