Learning Strategies

The learning strategies contained in this section are found in the "Titan Learning Strategies" binder that will be distributed to all Templeton teachers, in September of 2013. 

The goal is for teachers to use these and other tools to reinforce our students' study skill habits.

Our four focus areas are: 

1. Agenda and Time Management Skills
2. Notebook and Organizational Skills
3. Note Taking Strategies
4. Test Taking Strategies
