COURSE DESCRIPTION

This 1-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 to aid in the executive functioning of elementary-ages students. Specific topics, such as organization (time, space, and materials), identifying topics, main ideas and details, simple two-column note-taking, and micro-uniting/structuring projects will be covered. Time will be allotted to practice and apply some of these strategies during the session to see how the skills can be applied across the curriculum. Participants should bring a textbook or materials that they currently use/will use with students for the application portions of the seminar in order to see how the skills apply to their own curriculum.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Define study skills and explain different study skills strategies
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how to incorporate study skills into their curriculum
  • Generate meaningful activities that integrate curriculum and study skills
  • Understand and use written expression templates
  • Adapt and micro-unit various skills to meet the needs of their students
  • Recognize the importance of teaching study skills

 

Note: Participants should bring a textbook or materials that they currently use/will use with students for the application portions of the seminar.
