DYNAMIC STUDY STRATEGIES

 PREFACE

 Reading is an excellent way to increase one’s knowledge in anything one comes across. The challenge is that not all that one reads he or she remembers. It is the desire of the author to help all readers read intelligently, with understanding and be able to remember what they read.

 This book has been designed specially for high school learners to help them prepare for their final year in Matric. The material in this book has been tried in eighty high schools in the Gauteng Province and three hundred in the North West School systems and the results have been significant. The workshops run added zest and interest in learning for majority of learners involved.

 The best results are seen when learners go through a workshop setting where they are coached in using these strategies for enhanced learning. In that relation they ask questions, see how the strategies are applied in different situations. These strategies are intertwined with the learners daily activities to enhance understanding and recall.

 This material has been very useful in empowering educators to enhance their learner coaching abilities. Many schools arrange such workshops for both learner and educator in the interest of high pass rates in Matric.   Call for help.
