The hm Learning and Study Skills Program: Level II was designed to provide an introduction to learning and study skills for 8th, 9th, and 10th grade students through a series of activity-oriented units. The Level II Teacher's Guide includes a pretest, a wide variety of teaching suggestions, unit summaries, activities for retrieval and closure as well as teaching adaptations through the use of technology. It was published to help teachers assist students in the development of essential study skills and to reinforce their existing strategies that work. It is structured on the assumption that an activity-oriented lesson is the most effective instructional strategy for the teaching of study skills. Or, more succinctly, that "learning by doing" is the best way to study smart.
