Reading & Study Skills 

Grades 7–9
A skills course designed for students entering grades 7 through 9, this course provides two of the most essential skills needed for being an effective student: how to read critically and how to learn. Students learn to make reasonable judgments about what they read, distinguish fact and opinion, distinguish the author’s purpose, and draw conclusions. Skimming, scanning, and reading pace are worked on concurrently. Study skills are addressed through a learning style and metacognitive approach. Instruction focuses on the following areas: listening, note taking, memory, test taking, and time management. (Also listed for Middle School.)
