Effective Study and Learning
How to Help
Author 1: Gavin Reid
Author 2: Jenny Guise
A complete, straightforward guide to the issues and challenges commonly faced by children and young people when seeking to study and learn effectively – and the practical ways in which parents, carers, teachers and schools can help.
Part of the How to Help series of books exploring issues commonly faced by children and young people at home and at school, Effective Study and Learning offers a complete introduction to these critical yet frequently overlooked topics. Many young people exert considerable effort in ‘studying’ but still come away disappointed with the results, particularly when faced with traditional written exams. All too often, they fail to fulfil their potential not because of a lack of hard work, but because they have not mastered the study and learning techniques that are fundamental to success in education and eventually in the workplace. Highlighting why self-knowledge and understanding one’s own learning style and preferences are critical to success, Gavin Reid and Jennie Guise consider the skills and strategies required for effective study and successful learning – and how parents, carers, teachers and schools can help.
