Description: Students will analyze their individual learning styles before delving into strategies and techniques specific to each discipline as well as study skills that are crucial for success across disciplines. Students will learn note-taking skills, memory techniques, test-taking strategies and time management skills. To prepare students for analytical reading in the school year, they will practice reading comprehension strategies, determining what is important in a text, annotating, and inferencing. Writing skills such as using academic language, creating thesis statements, and collecting evidence will also be taught to prepare students for work in the Humanities.
