1 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD St Joseph Sliema Senior 1 Seminar Ms Camilleri and Ms Attard

2 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Study is like the heaven’s glorious sun. William Shakespeare SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

3 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Research shows that we remember only 1 % of what we hear. To achieve study skills you need to learn to capture the essentials of what you’ve being taught. The studying process could be divided into three main components: SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

4 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar Studying How to record How to remember How to revise

5 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Strategy number 1: Note Making Note making if done efficiently it increases your chances of remembering things by six times Benefits of good notes: Good notes will help you by: Showing what is important and what can be ignored. Grouping things together. Making you ask new questions. Having the ideas put down in your own words. Copying the shape of things as your brain sees it. Being good to look at and memorable. SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

6 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Strategy 1: Note Making How to produce them 3 types of notes Linear notes Pattern notes Summary SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

7 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Linear Notes By selecting the most important sentence of what you read. Search for keywords and mark them with highlighters. These will help you shorten the sentence. Students with a high score in precision will find it difficult to highlight the keywords. SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

8 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Example The Maltese Islands started to form around 30 to 25 million years ago when sediment and fossils were deposited on the bottom of the sea. The different rock layers resulted from different environments and geological times in which the sediments and fossils were deposited. Around 10 million years ago, these rock years rose to the surface due to African plate and the Eurasian plate moving towards each other causing the sediment in between to uplift. Therefore, all of the Maltese rock types are sedimentary. The Maltese Islands are made up of 5 different rock types. These are namely; Upper Coralline Limestone, Greensand, Blue Clay, Globigerina Limestone and Lower Coralline Limestone. SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

10 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Pattern Notes These are also known as mind mapping. By having the main subject in the centre and write notes around it. In this technique you need to use abbreviations. SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

11 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Example Maltese Rock sedimentary Different layers = different geological time 25-30 million yrs old 5 layers 2. Greensand 4. Globigerina Limestone 5. Lower Coralline Limestone 1. Upper Coralline Limestone 3.Blue Clay SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

12 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Summary These are not chunks of text but point forms. Clarify the pattern by using underlining + capitals+ arrows + boxing + colour to stand out points. This is an effective strategy for students with a high score in sequence. SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

13 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD The Maltese rock formed around 30 to 25 million years ago from sediment and fossils. The Maltese rocks are sedimentary. The 5 different rock types are found in this order: Upper Coralline Limestone Greensand Blue Clay Globigerina Limestone Lower Coralline Limestone Summary Example SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

14 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Strategy 2: How to read efficiently when studying? SQ3R SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

15 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD SQ3R S=Survey Q=Question R= Read R= Recall R= Review SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

17 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Read Read Chosen pieces. Look for the main chapter’s idea. Recall Pick the main ideas. Make notes summary notes would be best. Review Test yourself on your notes to see if you remember. SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

18 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Strategy 3: Writing Essays When you learn essays are important. Listening, reading and making notes aren’t enough. Exams require essay writing.

20 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD 3. Use the sources efficiently. Read using the SQ 3 R method. 4. Make a draft. Do a web diagram and brainstorm, the key question that answer will form the essays ASK: Who? What? Why? When? Where?. SJS Sliema Senior 1 Seminar

23 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD In essay writing consider also the : Style: Use short sentences. Keep language simple. Use good grammar, punctuation and spelling.

25 ST JOSEPH SCHOOL SLIEMA MS N. CAMILLERI MS C. ATTARD Revision Use games like quiz to check how much knowledge was acquired. Involve parents or care givers to support you in this. Organisation is the key to your success. Steps to revision. Choose areas which are manageable in one evening and divide each subject in chapters.
