To help educators understand the importance of study strategies, The Virtual High School (VHS, Inc.) has partnered with Landmark School, Inc. to release a report titled “Why are Study Skills Essential to Academic Success?”
The report is authored by Patricia Newhall, M.A., M.S. Ed., Associate Director of the Landmark School Outreach Program.
“Why are Study Skills Essential to Academic Success?” outlines the three main categories of study skills that students need: management of materials, management of time, and management of ideas and information.
In addition to the report, VHS partnered with Landmark School to create a virtual version of Landmark’s in-person Study Skills+ course in the last quarter of 2015. The course focuses on a host of topics such as locating main ideas, two-column note taking, the Five Step Writing process, and more.
