This NY Times article is excellent. It points out how studies have shown the falsity of the “learning style” debate where educrats say, “well some children are visual and some are auditory.” This is a false theory which has tended to promote Investigations math style instruction. There are several other major tips to effective studying based on research that’s been done such as varying the room you study in, and mixing different content in a study session. Very highly recommended.

One Response to “Research on Effective Study Methods”

    Interesting article. Of course, all research is not conclusive. There were a few specifics that, at least from my own experience, are not necessarily true. However, it is a really good place to start for helping my children, and even myself when the time comes for me to return to school. I really like the article.

    I really appreciate the ideas that it gives. Thank you for posting it.
