Suitable for

PRIMARY SCHOOL

Good study habits should be taught at a young age. Fundamental study techniques are taught to children in a stimulating and interesting manner, introducing the idea early on learning can be pleasurable.

Efficient Thinking

LOGIC VERSUS ORIGINAL THOUGHT

Although elementary exercises are given in logic and the student is made aware of the need to discipline thinking, it should be remembered that logic will almost always take someone just so far down a well trodden path. Original thought tends to come when one thinks about something from many angles, and this course, while not pretending to teach someone to become a creative thinker, can make a student aware of some of the processes that go into creative thinking.

Efficient Listening

LISTENING FOR KEY INFORMATION

If one listens for key information in difficult sections of a lecture, understanding can be considerably improved. Also concentration is improved as the mind is riveted to the essential points of the lecture.

TAKING NOTES FROM LECTURES

Taking lecture notes is an essential habit that should be acquired early in one’s educational career. At university students spend more time writing down verbatim what the lecturer is saying than thinking about the points he is making.

Efficient Reading

VOCABULARY EXTENSION

Obviously a part of efficient reading involves the building up of a respectable vocabulary. Students are taught a method for learning new English words at speed, and also instructed in the meaning of Latin and Greek derivative words, as well as prefixes and suffixes. Armed with a limited number of these the vocabulary of a student can be extended by thousands of words.

Study Techniques

HOW TO STUDY A TEXTBOOK & NOTE TAKING

Many students have a very negative attitude to textbooks because of the time and difficulty in reading and understanding them. The special method of approaching a textbook which is taught in the course should help the student overcome this.

Retention

MEMORY IMPROVEMENT

Can the memory be improved? Physiologically speaking the answer is no, since the functioning of the memory is beyond our conscious control. However, if information is fed correctly to the brain, or to put it another way, if one learns correctly, the ability to recall can be greatly improved.

EXTRACTING ESSENTIAL INFORMATION

One of the first for high retention and accurate recall is to extract only relevant information for learning, and to discard the superfluous.
