Study method course for teachers

The South African Education Department encourages teachers nationwide to continue improve their teaching skills. One method is to attend courses to get CPD-points. SACE (South African Council for Educators) recently awarded Ready Steady Study! with accreditation. At Ready Steady Study! we strive to raise the bar of teacher and child alike by empowering both. We teach the teacher how to study, and she conveys this new knowledge to her pupils so that they then learn how to study.
 
We have a team of knowledgeable, enthusiastic presenters who love to be part of this empowerment process. We start by learning how the brain works. We encourage the teachers to use strong, creative methods, which help the pupils to understand lessons better because we address more intelligences. It integrates the amazing importance of pictures,  how to make strong associations, how to address a variety of learning styles as well as how to give good summary notes. This course is also very practical. Teachers get to practice and experience all the study methods.
 
We further address aspects such as methods of lesson presentation, the class room as a study environment, and memorising as the end product. For more information, send an e-mail to a presenter in your area.
