Attention in-coming 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students, do you want to get a jump-start on your first year at Hill-Murray? This Study Skills class will not only teach you how to be a better student but will also get you familiar and comfortable being a Pioneer before the school year even starts. The biggest bonus to this course is meeting new friends! You will learn your way around the building, how to use your locker and combination, navigate through technology, know how to use the Library Media Center, use your PIN in the café, and be introduced to H-M staff members. In addition to learning the ropes here, in this 8-day course we will strive to build skills in all the following areas of reading tasks, study skills, and study strategies. We will work on the skills necessary to excel on homework, review, and class preparation. The following will be areas of focus: Goal Setting Time Management; Listening Location Skills, Organizational Skills Interpreting Skills, Retention Skills Test Taking; Reading Rate Skills Study Strategies; Word Meaning & Analysis Synonyms & Antonyms; Context Clues Main Ideas & Details; Evaluating Information Drawing Conclusions; Characters & Plot Reading Literature; Content Area Reading Skills. Finally, in an effort to keep you on task and successful here at H-M, the instructor will meet with you after the second and fourth week of school. At that time, the instructor will answer any questions you may have and work out any kinks. This seminar is highly recommended for students who are conditionally accepted
