Year 10 Seminar: Study Skills
On Thursday 2 March 2017, Dr Prue Salter from Enhanced Learning Educational Services ran a study skills session with Year 10. The session focused on helping students identify changes and improvements they could make to their approach to their studies in order to maximise their results in their final years of school.
The main areas covered with Year 10 were setting up an effective study space at home, managing resources for school (both paper and digital), working effectively in the evenings and dealing with distractions, managing time efficiently, planning for assessments, making brain-friendly study notes on a regular basis and using a wide variety of active study techniques to suit individual learning styles.
Parents are encouraged to review the handout from the session with students and discuss the main areas identified where changes need to be made. Parents can also find extra study skills tips on the website.
All secondary students and parents at PLC Sydney have access to a great study skills website to help students develop their skills.

There are lots of useful handouts on the THINGS TO PRINT page on this site and students can work through the units where they need additional help.
