An attractive, brand new, high quality resource designed to help prepare learners for the exam period. If you teach an exam year, or learners embarking on linear A Levels this is of particular interest to you. It can also benefit students in a wide range of settings who need to work towards a specific goal.
‘Use Your Time Well’ is a resource that asks learners to think about their current level of commitment, and to look realistically at where their time goes and where it is lost! To achieve success, learners need to put in time and effort but the crucial factor is how effectively they are using their study time now. Help your learners to avoid losing a lot of unproductive time and then wondering why they are not getting the results they want. This workbook will introduce them to tips and techniques for effective time management. Activities include focusing your thoughts, analysing where your time goes, identifying your blockers and how to deal with them, embedding new effective habits, sleep hygiene.
The key value of this resource is to start working with learners as early as possible to build their skills until these become part of a well-planned study routine and avoid last minute panic and stress in the exam period. By starting early, learners can decide which tools are useful to them and embed these into their study plans right from the start of the year.
The workbook is 18 x A4 pages in PDF format, with engaging and colourful text and activities (can be copied within one institution). It is self-contained and can be used by learners on their own or as part of a tutorial or study group. It includes clear learning aims, space for reflection and opportunities for discussion as well as self-directed learning. All activities can be completed in the book. It can be used alone or with an accompanying presentation, available separately. Use Your Time Well is one of a set of four workbooks and presentations that make up the Plan for Success suite of exam preparation. This workbook will allow you to maximise the value of tutor time or as part of a wider programme of study skills, exam preparation or PSHE.
