Reason and free inquiry
are the only effectual
agents against error.

Curricular applications of the Guides:

Sequences

There are several sequences of Guides in the Study Guides Website:
Time management; Problem solving; Motivating yourself; Seven stages of writing assignments; etc. You are also free to construct your own, as with "Study strategies" or "Learning with others." These sequences can be developed and applied in one class session or over a period of time.

Copy, paste, edit and print!

  • Select a Guide, copy and paste it into your word processor
  • Edit the text: adapt it with your class identifier, students' names, local resources, etc.
  • Reference and assign any interactive exercise on the Website e.g. my daily schedule
  • Print and distribute
  • Assign an (short paragraph) assignment about the topic
    on how they could apply one suggestion contained in the Guide
  • Cite both the exercise and the source

Classroom topic of the week:

  • Demonstrate an SGS “study skill” using your interactive whiteboard or projector. Most of the topics provide interactive learning or another assignment to help students practice the skill.
  • Then have students work individually or with a partner to similarly explore a “topic of the week” and summarize their experience.
    (These life skills are so necessary, but hard to fit into the already crammed curriculum. SGS does a nice job of integrating the study skills with curriculum content.
  • Have students create their own multimedia projects about study skills using a current unit of study from your class.
