(Grades 2-6) Why Does Studying Have to Be So Difficult?! Some children become overly stressed at the simple mention of a test, while others avoid thinking about it at all. Neither approach is healthy. Having good study skills can make a huge difference when it comes to succeeding in both school and in life. However, good study skills are not innate, they must be taught, embraced and cultivated. When children learn the correct way to study, they develop effective skills that can lead to a greater chance of success later in life. Polar opposites, Cletus and Bocephus become study partners! Bocephus over studies and stresses about every assignment and test. Cletus studies as little as possible and puts off any preparation until the night before. Knowing that neither approach is effective, Cletus' mom introduces them to powerful, hands-on, study tips called, The Amazing Great 8! The boys then learn how good study skills can affect not only their grades, but also their attitudes and results.

Students have an opportunity to revisit their self-assessment at the conclusion of the text. Written in a positive, motivational style, ON COURSE empowers students with the tools they need to take charge of their success in college and in life. Downing's powerful guided journal entries are retained from the ON COURSE text to help students develop essential life skills by encouraging exploration of personal responsibility, self-motivation, interdependence, and self-esteem.

Level III (Grades 11-13) The hm Learning and Study Skills Program: Level III was designed to provide an introduction to learning and study skills for high school juniors and seniors and beginning college students through a series of activity-oriented units. It is structured on the assumption that an activity-oriented lesson is the most effective instructional strategy for the teaching of study skills: more succinctly, that “learning by doing” is the best way “study smart.” Learning and study skills are important for learning. They are methods and ways of doing things that help make learning easier. Understanding how to study can also facilitate learning by assisting students as they complete assignments correctly and efficiently during a specified period of time. Just like any other skill, knowing how to learn and study proficiently must be learned and practiced over time. The Program has been designed to help students learn more efficiently and effectively.
