Students are encouraged to bring work from their classes to do in study skills. This is the main purpose of Study Skills. I will encourage students to keep their work organized in folders. It would be helpful if they carry a planner to record assignments during the day so that when they are asked what they need to work on, they will know what they should be doing to keep up in their other classes.If they have no work, they should bring a book to read. Our high school library has limited hours this year, so please help your student find a book he/she enjoys. No magazines are allowed. I also have books available in the classroom. One of the best ways you can help your student to develop his/her study skills is to encourage a set time to work at home, away from distractions. If you hear the familiar "I have nothing to do", check your student's grades online.
