I agree with #1. My personal answer would be FlashCards and Echo.(Echo is when you reread what you read out loud to see if you really understanded it.
Skill 1: Reading comprehension. Strong – majority of vocabulary, main arguments, can paraphrase accurately. Weak – does not understand vocabulary or ideas of material read.
Skill 2: Memorization: Strong – remembers essential material accurately. Weak – does not remember material studied and cannot build on earlier work due to not remembering it.
Skill 3: Focus: Strong – prioritizes important tasks and assignments. Weak – focusses on trivia and does not devote adequate time to important matters.
Skill 4: Punctuality: Strong – gets to class and hands in work on time. Weak – fails to do so.
Skill 5: Time management: Strong – Plans adequate time to complete assignments and study. Weak – does school work at last minute or not at all.
Skill 6: Note taking: Strong – takes notes in class which cover essential material in coherent way and can be used for studying. Weak – either tries to take verbatim notes without thinking or does superficial notes.
Strong study skills will enable you to really learn the material and perform well in school. They will also ensure that you carry with you whatever you learn. Studying a little bit daily, reviewing old material frequently, and quizzing yourself are examples of good study skills.
Weak study skills will prevent you for really learning the material. This includes cramming the night before the test. Sure, you might pass the test, but you won't remember any of the material after it.
What everyone needs to understand is that every student is different and this means that every student has different study patterns that help them. It is futile if you make every student learn the same way because some students may benefit and some students won't be able to benefit. Students sometimes can be divided into 3 different learning styles: auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. Personally, I am a visual learning, so that rules out repeating notes out loud and hands-on learning. I learn best through color, diagrams, flashcards, and watching videos.
Strong study skills means that you have to study every day for an amount of time. Strong study skills mean you use the stuff you learned and use flashcards and repeat things over until you get it. Weak study skills mean you slack off all the time and never or barely do any work at all . Weak study skills are people who do not even try.
Some strong study skills would be attentive and eager to learn. If you are happy and interested (or even pretend to be) on what you are learning, the information will most likely be more understandable and you will be able to retain it more. Some weak study skills would be procrastination and lack of motivation. People who do not put out the time and are not motivated to learn will suffer greatly in the class -- in terms of participation and sometimes grade-wise
