Once a firm foundation in reading and literacy has been established, students are taught study skills so they can learn any subject.
Learning How to Learn
Learning How to Learn: Once the student’s basic literacy skills are up to par, this course is undertaken to teach him how to study. This segment educates the student about specific Barriers to Study that everyone encounters while studying. Barriers are things that get in your way or stop your progress. There are three different sets of physiological and mental reactions that come from three different aspects of study. You may have had the experience of studying something and running into trouble. Maybe you even gave up trying to make sense of what you were studying and no longer wished to study that subject. If this has ever happened to you it means you ran into one of the barriers to study and didn’t know how to handle it and so gave up. The student/mentee learns to recognize these primary barriers and how to handle them himself, greatly reducing the need for teacher assistance in student learning. Fortunately, handling the barriers to learning turns out to be incredibly simple! Upon completion of this course he can recognize the source of study difficulties and how to overcome them. These study skills are a core aspect of the Study Technology discovered and codified by educator and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard.
In the world of the future, the new illiterate will be the person who has not learned how to learn.” – Alvin Toffler
How to Use a Dictionary
How to Use a Dictionary: This simple course explains and demonstrates all the parts to a dictionary, its format, symbols, marks and pronunciations in a way that allows the student to understand and embrace this vital tool as a “friend.” Dictionary literacy is an essential skill because one of the most insidious barriers to learning is the misunderstood word.
How to Demonstrate Anything
How to Demonstrate Anything: Gives the student the ability to work out concepts and instructions by showing him a practical way of objectively demonstrating them to the student himself or to others.
