Teaching A level Study Skills
Teaching A Level Study Skills
Students with dyslexia/SpLD often find adjusting to A level studies challenging. Students may have developed strategies that have enabled them to cope at GCSE level, however, transferring these strategies to their new studies can be problematic. As a result it is not uncommon to find that high achievers at GCSE level gain lower grades than expected at A level.
This session is designed to provide teachers with the opportunity to develop successful approaches for teaching the underpinning study skills that the students need.
By the end of the session we will have:
- Explored the needs of this specific group of learners
- Considered the difficulties the student may experience
- Gained an understanding of the importance of developing metacognitive skills
- Received practical teaching and learning suggestions
