Effective Study Skills are Key for Overall Academic Success!




You will follow Jim, a 12th-grade student juggling challenging homework and personal commitments. You will be introduced to Left Jim and Right Jim—two characters who illustrate the functions of the left brain and right brain. A variety of study skills are presented, including note taking, prioritizing, scheduling, and more.

• Understand the functions of the right brain and left brain and use the knowledge to balance the tasks involved with studying;

• Plan an effective study schedule;

• Determine personal attributes that would impact an individual’s studying efforts;

• Make lists to aid in planning and prioritizing;

• Know how to approach studying with the right frame of mind;

• Identify and utilize a method of note taking that complements their personal strengths;

• Locate an appropriate location for studying; and
