As teachers we often hear from students about how they revise or study. We usually emphasise the importance of writing as this does impact on learning retention ? However, how often do we see students writing and being comfortable with the process and more importantly understanding the different types of writing required both at high school and university levels?
In the busyness of our classrooms, we sometimes don’t have time to spend on teaching the various structures of text or help develop student’s proficiency in this. The number of universities that have active academic learning centres of study cent res is proof of the need for these skills. Can your students write a critical essay [James Cook University] or develop essay writing strategies [Australian National University] or how to write [University of Sydney] ?
Providing online learning options and scaffolds for students is essential for their learning. How can we improve on this?
Do your students have these beliefs about themselves?
You can help your students to become self-reflective so they can take positive actions to change their attitudes and behaviours about study and school.
We are experienced educators passionate about students achieving their potential, and believe that to do this they need highly developed and personalised learning and study skills
