The principle underpinning this webinar is “how to wake up in the morning and still remember what you studied last lesson, last week and so on. “ As an antidote to so many “waffly websites” on study skills, the focus will be on research validated strategies, which will be chunked to make them doable and achievable for students with additional learning needs at Key Stages 2-4. Areas covered will include active listening, note taking, reading to remember and revising for tests – getting it down on paper will be covered in future webinars, starting with “Catch up non-fiction writing” on 04/02/21
