2024-2025 School Year

Study Skills for Middle School SPT

Tuesdays and Thursdays

Course Description

Study Skills will encourage students to take specific actions to attack challenges in both school and daily life. Some of the challenges we will focus on include mindset, listening barriers, and executive functioning skills (organization, planning/prioritization, task initiation, adjusting, perseverance, and teamwork). Various activities and games will be incorporated into class time to support growth in these areas. In addition, we will utilize scientifically backed study strategies to learn actual coursework.We will engage in mock lessons to learn various skills, and students will be given the opportunity to practice presenting, goal setting, outlining, note taking, researching, and memorization and testing strategies.


To be successful in this class:

Students should come to class prepared and ready to collaborate with classmates. Students must take appropriate action during the week to apply the skills practiced in class to daily life and coursework.

Weekly assignments will include a study tool including presentation (Output); this once weekly assignment is completed and presented  in class. The student should be able to complete guided notes in class to be uploaded in Jupiter Ed as homework. There will be a Juno Pod checklist that will be completed weekly as homework. In addition, students will complete a project that will conclude with a presentation.

Parents will be asked to ensure that students are prepared for class with completed class notes and assignments, encourage students to apply the strategies covered in class to their coursework, and guide students as they set personal goals.
