How To Study For English
There is such limited teaching time during VCE that it is near impossible for classroom teachers to find the time to teach specific study techniques on top of their content. Often students understand how to approach their study in other subjects, however find study outside of set homework for English near impossible. This session looks at the essential skills of English and the different methods to enact real student-directed learning in the classroom. With specific teaching strategies and approaches dependent on your school’s approaches to study (online tools v regular homework) the workshop ensures every teacher has a number of different ideas for each VCE outcome to take into the classroom.
This session can be further supported by having the students participate in the student How to study for English workshop. Using the same ideas but giving providing more detailed explanations of how to and why, this means the uptake for teachers will be even greater and therefore more effective overall.
