Today students discussed who and what it takes to study well for a test. Then we broke up into collaborative study groups. They demonstrated amazing tenacity as each group worked for 45 to 60 minutes with a study packet. There was a great buzz of activity in the room.
Tomorrow we'll continue this study session with a focus on "Do the Hard Part First." I'll recommend that groups look through the packet and choose that most challenging pages to do first. By working on the most challenging part together they have a better chance of learning it with each others' help. "Doing the hard part first" is a often a good study strategy.
