Study Skills and Keyboarding (8-12)

General Description:


Study Skills:

This 30 week course in Study Skills and Keyboarding is for homeschool students in 8th-12th grade and will be helpful for both high school and college classes. The aim of this course is to encourage students to consider academics in light of their future goals, based on an understanding of their individual strengths, weaknesses, aptitudes and interests. Focusing on future goals contributes to developing the right motivation for improving current study habits. During the year, we will cover five important units, in addition to the keyboarding skills that will be practiced during the beginning of each class. Topics include discovering your learning style, how your attitude affects your success as a student, time management, goal setting, in-class listening skills, note-taking and test-taking skills, and more!

Susan Quiroz learned the first semester of college that studying the night before a test  will lead to academic disaster.  After that fateful semester, she began to apply study skills that carried her successfully through college and graduate school. She realized the immense value in instructing children in those study skills as well as teaching them to type on a keyboard, quickly and accurately. During ten years of watching some homeschool students fail to thrive due to poor study habits and lack of organizational skills, she decided to put together this one-year high school course to arm students with essential study and keyboarding skills.
