This 2-day workshop will provide an overview of Landmark’s study skills model, as well as practical, hands-on application of study skills strategies and teaching techniques in an elementary or middle school classroom. The course will cover specific topics such as organization (e.g., time, space, and materials), identifying topics, main ideas, details, two-column note-taking, study strategies, and microuniting and structuring projects. Participants should bring a textbook or materials that they currently use/will use with students for the application portions of the seminar to see how the skills apply to their curriculum.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Define study skills and explain different study skills strategies
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how to incorporate these techniques into your curriculum
  • Generate meaningful activities that integrate curriculum and study skills
  • Explore various ways to adapt and micro-unit skills to meet the needs of your students
  • Discuss ideas and practical methods related to study skills
  • Recognize the importance of teaching study skills


This course is appropriate for educators at the elementary and middle school levels. 


Materials will be provided on-site.
