Nov 9, 2017 5:00pm ‐ Nov 9, 2017 6:00pm

Study skills have come a long way since handwritten flashcards and two-column noting-taking. Drawing from current neuroplasticity research, this session presents novel ways to look at study skills as a dynamic developmental process, including specific strategies to address college-level course assignments and new ways to engage hard-to-reach students. Case studies and web-based demonstrations are presented to further illustrate ways to engage students in study skills across content areas.

Learning Outcome:

  • COMPREHENSION: Examine the critical role knowledge plays in reading comprehension for students with reading difficulties.
