iStudyforSuccess gives middle school students study skills



CUMMING, Ga. — Forsyth County students have another tool for study skills with the newly launched iStudyforSuccess curriculum, a nine-week study skills program that helps middle school students increase comprehension and improve study habits.

The curriculum was developed by Julie Wilson, founder of Qwizzy’s World, Cram Stoppers and Quiz Infinity.

The iStudyforSuccess program was designed to be offered as an elective, and may be used by educators in the classroom or in a home school setting.

It teaches students how to be successful in a step-by-step manner, covering topics like time management, goal setting, learning styles, organizational skills, reading and note taking strategies

Wilson spent about 200 hours at Piney Grove Middle School to validate her research by collecting immediate input from the study skills teacher and the students.

The program website offers simple navigation, requires minimal supplies and provides step-by-step sessions down to sample parent communications.

No training is needed to implement iStudyforSuccess, and parents can even use it during the summer to help their children brush up on study skills.

Piney Grove Middle School and Pinecrest Academy included iStudyforSuccess in their curriculums.

“This is the first time I have ever seen middle school students so excited about a study skills class,” said Terri A. North, principal of Piney Grove.
