Estimate student proficiency with the key learning techniques, such as time management and study skills. How many students do these things well? For those who don’t, improvements in which areas would lead to the greatest improvement in their performance the most quickly? See the website for this book for a host of programs that address these techniques.
Introduce students to time management by first having them track how they are using their time. This builds their awareness of the decisions they are making about which activities are important (http://www.studenttools.info/study-tips-time-management-guide.html).
Many resources exist to help students improve their skills on a number of different learning techniques, such as time management and study skills. See the book ’s website for examples. Then identify students who could benefit by improving their skills in these two areas.
Require all students to have a method for recording assignments regularly, and check regularly that they have done so. Do this schoolwide at all grade levels and in all courses that have assignments.
