Welcome to Study Right
Study skills play an important role in helping students experience success in school. Educators share the same goals—to equip all students to do their very best, to guide all students to achieve at their learning potential, and to help all students to enjoy their school experiences. These worthy goals are best evidenced by students who make good grades and display positive attitudes about learning. The learning process involves more than simply telling students to study harder and longer; it involves equipping students with the knowledge and strategies they need to learn. These strategies are called study skills.
Study Right provides your students with the study skills they need to enrich their learning. Enriched study habits mean improved learning; improved learning means improved grades and improved retention of knowledge. This is why the learning of study skills should not be left to chance, even though some students may discover some study skills without formal study skills instruction. Most students need study skills instruction from teachers who understand the relationship of effective studying to learning and who are willing to invest time in teaching their students this relationship. Until Christian educators recognize the value of teaching students how to study and energetically support the implementation of a structured study skills program in their schools, most students will continue to be deficient in their study skills development. Study Right can correct this deficiency; it need not remain unaddressed any longer.
Students attend school to learn. Teachers teach because they want students to learn. The successful teaching/learning process involves teachers who want to impart knowledge and students who want to learn the knowledge that teachers impart. Students must study to learn if they expect to experience academic success.
Teachers closely supervise the learning process in the early grades; as students mature in age and knowledge, they assume more personal responsibility for their learning. Learning begins with total dependence on others; it progresses to the point of total dependency on oneself. If a student learns how to learn when he is young, he will most likely become a lifetime learner. Teachers collectively work together to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need for a lifetime of learning—a life made up of both academic and spiritual learning. Study Right will help you and your teachers achieve these goals.
Instructional-minded principals and teachers constantly watch for educational materials that will improve the teaching/learning process. They want their students to learn; if they can provide a means that improves learning, they respond positively and quickly.
How will study skills instruction help your students increase their learning? Perhaps a better question is, “How will a lack of study skills instruction hinder your students’ learning?” Instructional materials that enhance learning are worth the investment in time and money. Study Right was written for an important purpose—to assist educators to teach students how to improve their school performances.
