Study Skills & Exam Strategies

This program is currently being reworked to be delivered online. Watch for upcoming classes!

Program Description & Objectives

Two sessions held over two evenings, typically a week apart.

 

Session One –  Study Skills

 

A secret to doing well at school is working smarter.

 

Students will learn how to:

  • Uncover and capitalize on learning styles
  • Manage time like a pro
  • Get and stay organized
  • Create a plan to stay on top of work
  • Take notes that make sense
  • Remember what has been studied 

Session Two – Exam Strategies

 

Sometimes exam scores may not reflect how well a student knows a subject area. The student may “get” the subject matter, and perform very well on class assignments, but score significantly lower on exams.

 

Students will learn how to:

  • Study for exams
  • Manage exam anxiety and use it as an advantage
  • Figure out what is important to study
  • Make the most out of multiple choice exams, essays, short answers, or other types of exams
  • Use exam banks and practice exams effectively

Who Should Attend?

The Study Skills and Exam Strategies workshops are suitable for students in junior and senior high, or those at the post-secondary level. The sessions are particularly valuable for students with learning disabilities, and/or attention and organizational issues. The workshops will be of benefit to all learners, however.
