7th Grade Study Support
The purpose of the Study Skills course is for students to develop an understanding that each student learns differently and that it is important to learn study strategies that align to one’s individuality. The Study Skills course teaches students how to become aware of their strengths and weaknesses while developing strategies to assist in enhancing their learning, behavior, self-control over negative emotions and organization.
