Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Students may want to study more efficiently but seldom are taught how. Written by a long-time professional educator and strategic-planning consultant, this course presents the foundational concepts of the Victus Study Skills System including goal setting, time management, test taking, note taking, and reading skills. Using a systems approach to study, the Teacher Edition guides the teacher through the ten lessons, helping students succeed in academics and in life.

Category Description for Victus Study Skills System:

For middle/high schoolers, IEW offers this well-established study skills methodology developed by Susan Ison and originally taught through the Memphis Tutorial Association. Taken from Latin meaning way of life, the Victus Study System aims "to equip the student for success in academics and in life." Students have a role in their own success. By understanding specific steps and strategies, developing specific skills, and utilizing tools, they increase the ability and likelihood of using these daily. The course plan is based on one week (five days) of one-hour sessions. The lessons move students through evaluating where they are now (current study habits and learning strengths), exploring where they want to be (mission and goal setting), and determining how to get there (time management, organization, PQRST Preview Question Read State Test, listening, note taking, and test taking). Lessons combine teacher-led content and student workbook exercises.

The Teacher Edition provides the overall philosophy, general instruction, suggestions for effective techniques, detailed specific lessons, and student pages with answers. The Student Workbook provides space to work through the strategies, compile information, and practice techniques. While there is some instruction, it is clearly designed to be used in conjunction with the Teacher Edition. This book becomes a student study manual that can be referenced for motivation, inspiration, or review. Both Teacher and Student contain the same additional information and exercises in the Appendix. The Combo provides both the Teacher and the Student books. Teacher 82 pgs, spiral-bound. Student 63 pgs, spiral-bound. ~ Janice

I have already used the IEW writing program and found this at the Homeschool convention. I've been looking for a program to teach my middle schooler effective study habits not only for school but for life! This is it!

I was looking for a good study skills curriculum for my homescooled kiddos. That way when they hit college they have a good foundation to use in the real world outside of our home.

A little disappointed
I was disappointed in this product recommended by IEW. While it did have good tips for taking tests, I was hoping for more practical advice on daily organization. My son did not enjoy the course and we were both bored with much of it. However, it did promote some conversation between us, especially about future plans.
