Academic Foundations: The Science of Student Success – a Two Part Workshop Series for High School Students (and Grade 8’s Transitioning into Grade 9 in Fall 2015).
Part Two – Note-taking and Preparing Notes that are Test and Exam Ready
This workshop is for students who have already registered for our first workshop; Preparing for Tests and Exams, and is an extension of what they need to know as a student to prepare effective study notes. While students may have an understanding of how to study, they may not be using effective note-taking strategies. Quite often students find themselves disorganized and without effective study notes to prepare for a test or exam.
This workshop is designed for high school students (and those entering grade 9 in the fall) and demonstrates:
- effective note-taking strategies
- effective reading strategies (how to annotate)
- how to create effective study-ready notes from a lesson, a reading assignment and a video
- organization techniques
Students are required to bring their school binders, text books, notes, class handouts, laptops (bring your own technology), PowerPoint handouts, and any other relevant materials they will need to have a solid understanding of for upcoming tests and exams, for every academic subject they are currently taking in school. Students will also need a binder, lined paper with binder holes, and a set of dividers for every subject. This is a very hands on workshop.
NOW is the right time to learn these important skills!
