Scaffolded Study and Written Expression Skills for the Elementary Classroom – Cape Cod 2020

This two-day seminar will provide an overview of Landmark’s Study Skills model. Participants will learn how to apply practical hands-on study skills strategies and how to teach scaffolded written expression skills. The seminar will address specific topics such as organization (e.g., time, space, materials), identifying topics, main ideas, and details, two-column note-taking, micro-uniting projects, and how to assist students with the creation of single and multi-paragraph compositions. Participants will also have the opportunity to practice learned strategies during the sessions to see how the skills can be applied across the curriculum.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Define study skills and explain different study skills strategies
  • Explain how to incorporate these techniques into their curriculum
  • Generate meaningful activities that integrate curriculum and study skills
  • Adapt and micro-unit various skills to meet the needs of their students
