There are many 'Do-it-Yourself' manuals for students and young people experiencing study skills problems. However, if this group of young people could study these books then they would already have the skills necessary! In order to use a self help manual the student needs internal motivation, the ability to self-instruct from text and the ability to put the learned strategy into place… but these are the same attributes that these students find difficult.
In this book, Pat Guy shows the reader how to teach, through self assessment, practice and confidence-building techniques, the techniques and self management required to achive independent study skills.
The programme provides a series of lesson plans making up a taught course for secondary schools, sixth form and FE colleges and PRUs. The sessions can be delivered by teachers or tutors but would ideally suit the job description of Learning Mentors whose task is to improve attendance and achievement in older students.
