How Can I Help Students See that Sweat—Working Hard and Smart—Is Key to Their Success?

Discover techniques for getting students to work smarter, not just harder. This programs covers questions of metacognition, the value of low-stakes feedback, and innovative ways that tests and quizzes can drive students to make more neural connections and increase long-term retention.

Turn students from passive to engaged learners

Many students don’t have a clear understanding of what learning really means and how to go about it.

Too often, they rely on ineffectual passive methods such as reviewing their notes or skimming their textbooks. They underestimate the difficulty in learning and overestimate their understanding.

Educators have to instruct their students not only in the course material itself, but also in how to learn it, how to engage with it, how to consider interrelationships and draw inferences.

Strategies that help students advance as learners inside and outside the classroom are explored in How Can I Help Students See that Sweat—Working Hard and Smart—Is Key to Their Success?, the 20-Minute Mentor now available for purchase from Magna Publications.

Dr. Lolita Paff, of Penn State Berks, leads a fascinating discussion on accessible ways to dispel common misperceptions that students have about what it means to really learn and turn students into active, self-directed learners.

You’ll discover techniques for getting students to work smarter, not just harder, such as how to debrief exams, which helps students understand the process they used to prepare for exams and its effectiveness.

Dr. Paff discusses the pivotal role that student reflection and self-assessment plays in improving learning. She covers questions of metacognition, the value of low-stakes feedback, and innovative ways that tests and quizzes can drive students to make more neural connections and increase long-term retention.
