How Your Youngster Can Benefit from Group Study Sessions

When a parent hears the term ‘group study session’, the first thought is of a group of students sitting around a table discussing the latest social media trends. However, in reality, a group study session can provide remarkable benefits for a youngster. Below is a post from The Tutoring Center, Miramar FL with more information on the subject.

A Misperception

Can you remember a time when you and your work colleagues were given the same instructions, only you understood it slightly differently, resulting in your colleague handing in the correct work and you handing in something which wasn’t really what was asked? These situations can occur all too easily in your child’s classroom, leaving your student to come home and spend their valuable homework time completing an assignment which wasn’t really asked of them. Instead of an angry boss, however, your student has a teacher who has little choice than to either apply a low or a failing grade. During a group study session, each student is able to openly discuss their perceptions of the lecture or the assignment, with each student helping to realign the group understanding, leaving all of the participants with a consistent and correct understanding of what is required.

A Flick of the Wrist

Students, despite their teacher’s best efforts, will try to write down everything the teacher says, often leaving them struggling to scribble what was said two sentences ago. As you can imagine, this results in nothing short of incomplete and inconsistent notes being taken and used for individual study. Through a group study session, each student can openly share their notes with the group, with each student helping each other to fill in the gaps and create some context around some of the notes which were scribbled. This will leave your student with a complete set of notes to use as their study guide.
