It’s self-evident that students become increasingly responsible for their own learning as they move through grades. Whether kindergartners learn or not is considered the success or failure of the teacher. But by grade 12, expectations are high that students can learn on their own; it’s routine to lecture, expecting students will take good notes and study them effectively for a quiz. Recent research has shown that students — even successful college students — use terrible study strategies. They are successful in spite of how they study, not because of it. In this talk I’ll focus on research into the best ways to study. This research not only has important implications for students, but for how teachers plan lessons.
