Helping Students Learn: Resources, Tools, and Activities for College Educators
Do you want to develop students as learners? Help students develop productive study skills? We have the solution for your classroom.
Helping Students Learn: Resources, Tools, and Activities for College Educators is a must-have guide for faculty. While the roles in the college classroom often are defined by teachers teaching and students learning, the reality is that not many students have a clear understanding of how to learn.
With more underprepared students entering college and university classrooms, educators are seeking ways to help them adapt to higher education, develop study skills, think critically, and ultimately, evolve as learners in society.
This comprehensive guide gives you the resources you need to prompt students to engage with the course material and offers instructional approaches to note taking, reading skills, study techniques, and ways to develop a more in-depth understanding of how to be a lifelong learner. Faculty can copy quizzes, handouts, assignments, and reviews and reflection activities for use in their classrooms to spark classroom discussions, encourage small and cooperative groups, and help students evolve as learners in college and university classroom environments.
Helping Students Learn: Resources, Tools, and Activities for College Educators is perfect for the novice or seasoned educator. The collection of curriculum activities, handouts, quizzes, and sound advice is ideal for anyone teaching new students, orientation sessions, first-year specialized courses, and as a supplement for general education courses. This expansive guide begins with study strategies that support student learning, tips for multitasking, and advice on how to study. Additional sections offer valuable insight for students on challenges and opportunities with assignments, navigating disappointing grades, and how to make the most of exam review sessions. Easily copy any of the resources to use as handouts and educational guides in the classroom. And, you can also explore in depth the valuable data about what research shows about students and studying found in this book.
Helping Students Learn: Resources, Tools, and Activities for College Educators also dives into note-taking techniques that promote learning, strategies for improving reading comprehension, and the benefits of student-run study groups. Students will benefit from instruction on how to study for exams, create study plans, and the differences between studying for exams and quizzes.
