Sturgis Brown High School Study Skills Program
Welcome to Sturgis Brown High
School's Study Skills web page. This site is designed to assist students
in becoming a successful student during their high school experience.
The intention of this class is to assist
students with their academic studies. This will be accomplished through
the instruction of a variety of study skill techniques. In addition to
study skills, I will assist students with their class assignments, test
preparation, project assignments and other requirements as they are
assigned. The majority of the time will be devoted to students working
on their assignments.
A vital component to
help assist students with their studies is an assignment book which is provided
for the student. The students are required to record their assignments and the
necessary information for completion of their assignments. Another essential
component is the progress report, which will be due approximately every two
weeks. The student is responsible for giving the form to each individual
teacher and the instructor will generally report a grade and missing assignments
if any and perhaps some additional comments. This is a very important tool in
monitoring progress of the student as well as a critical element for their study
Students will receive a credit and letter grade per semester. This is obtained
by completing the following:
Completion of progress reports (approximately every two weeks).
Daily tracking of assignments through the use of the assignment book
Using class time efficiently
Participation in the instruction of study skills
class is designed similar to a study hall; I emphasize the word

with minimal distractions.
