A REMARKABLE CONCEPT
The systematic and repeated use of any tool leads to its mastery. So it goes with learning study strategies and organization and planning skills.
Whereas some students develop effective ways to study on their own, the majority of students will not become proficient at studying without systematic instruction and repeated practice.

“Systematic instruction” and “repeated practice”…
A proven, systematic study skills curriculum combined with a proven daily planner all designed to provide the framework for repeatedly delivering powerful, results oriented study strategies. You get a cost effective, easy to implement study skills system that is proven to improve student grades.
Some of the concepts taught in the Study Smarts Curriculum:
Test Taking Strategies
MORE THAN JUST SKILLS TRAINING
Motivation, Confidence and Knowledge are all necessary to be successful in school. The AgenDUH
allows the student to observe (using both auditory and visual learning styles) an ongoing dialogue between the Unteachables and the Smarts Force.
This engaging dialogue addresses the underlying emotions and thought patterns that run through a students head when making decisions about school work and study. Skills built on a poor foundation of motivation and confidence won’t work. The AgenDUH will develop the metacognitive framework these students need to improve their study skills.
By taking a more holistic approach to building study strategies, the content in the AgenDUH
has proven to produce better results in students than just learning basic study tactics.
- Higher Test Scores
- Reduced Drop-out Rates
- Increased College Prep
- Less Stress & Improved Confidence
ORGANIZATION AND PLANNING
While students learn effective study strategies from the Study Smarts content they will also be developing new skills in organization and planning. Skills that will improve their grades now and in the future
One Full Page Every Day
– This “daily” planner concept has been a feature of our planner for over 13 years and proven successful by its adoption as planner of choice by Sylvan Learning since 1996. It also happens to be the perfect delivery format for daily study strategies. Whether you are right or left brained, a large assignment section and room to track other tasks makes the planner more useful to students making it “get” used more often.
15-Hour Appointment Section
– Everyone talks about time management, about finding hidden time in the day and blocking off time to study and for breaks. Yet no one gives students a place to do this basic tactic. A full day appointment section is a visual representation of time that teaches your students how to view their day. Over time, they will internalize this view and begin to use the free hours in the day to their advantage.
– A key skill in school (and life) is the ability to take longer term projects and break them down into manageable tasks to be accomplished every day. This section of the To Do list is a daily prompt to remind students of the next small step toward completing a project. You’re building a core competency with this approach to daily planning.
We have taken much of the decision making out of the equation. Your planner comes with an attractive, durable cover. It comes with a plastic page marker and 4 pages of colored Hall Passes. We only offer one cover design so you don’t have to go to committee on that decision either.
The decision is simple…a beautifully made, breakthrough study skills solution that is focused on results that will only compound over time. You are investing now for grade improvement that will pay dividends now and into the future.
