Study Skills Workshop
LEARN HOW TO STUDY EFFECTIVELY!
Overwhelmed by the amount of study you have to do? Don’t know WHERE to start or HOW to start? We are here to help!
Daily, students are expected to go home after school and “study” the work they have completed. However, quite often students are not shown HOW to study the information. Our DSA Study Skills Bootcamp does exactly that- it gives students the tools and tips they need to succeed in their studies and to get the most from their study sessions, helping to improve their motivation and confidence. We cater our bootcamps to student year groups and needs.
The interactive workshop introduces and focuses on confidence building, organisation, motivation, goal setting, study tips, study timetables, online resources, mind maps, using exam papers, cutting down content and various memory techniques. It is a hands-on bootcamp where students get involved in all activities throughout the day so they are 100% confident in carrying out the study techniques at home.
Please note: All of the techniques covered throughout the workshop will be of great benefit to students with dyslexia also.
All students are given a study journal which aids them in organising their study throughout the year and reinforces what was covered.
Students are shown how to condense large amounts of information from textbooks into shortened, concise notes.
**Please note: We do not run 1st year workshops until after Christmas as we feel it is vital for students to settle into their new school for the first few months and become accustomed to their new surroundings and routine before learning how best to approach their studies.
