Goal Setting

Students often struggle in school because they can’t find a higher purpose for learning.

Active Learning

Many students view learning as a passive process, in which the instructor lectures and the lecture content finds its own way into the students’ minds.

To succeed, students need to abandon this view and take responsibility for what and how they learn, and play an active role in the learning process.

Learn Responsibly

  • Connect with what they learn.
  • Ask questions that engender active engagement with the learning content.

Test Taking Strategies

The task of studying for an important test can seem too large and difficult. Students often develop a fatalistic attitude as a retreat from test anxiety. They act as though no amount of studying can prepare them for the test, which becomes an alibi for doing no preparation at all.

  • Break down test content into subjects of greatest importance to maximize the effectiveness of study time.
  • Coordinate study efforts with peers to encourage greater success for all through cooperation.
  • Manage and reduce test anxiety with meditation, exercise, and good nutrition.
  • Develop targeted strategies to answer specific question types better and more quickly.

Critical Thinking

Students often resist new information unless it conforms to their existing biases or seems to come from a source they can trust, but these sources are not always reliable. They need to be able to identify which information is most useful to them as they learn.

Test New Information

Students see how to:

  • Slow down and think about new information in a systematic, logical way.
  • Assess new information with an open mind and without bias.
  • Distinguish factually supported and useful information (such as information in a textbook from unsubstantiated opinion), hoaxes, and huckstering claims (such as deceptive ads).
