Study Skills: Improve Your Ability to Focus and Concentrate

Lauren Orcutt
Average rating:4.7Number of reviews:(55)
Focus and concentration can be horribly challenging, but really they are skills you can hone and improve. This class teaches concrete techniques and simple habits that train your brain to behave when you need it to.

Class experience

Students will learn strong motivations, specific activities, concrete techniques, and simple habits that help them concentrate when they need to. 
In my continuing education as a teacher, I've done extensive research into the science of learning. As a writing teacher and professional writer, I'm also a research expert. As a writer, I also have to be able to focus on command, which can be difficult with creative work - but if I wait for inspiration, I'll miss deadlines! 

I have a heart for study skills because I've seen so many students struggle unnecessarily. Some feel like learning is too difficult, so they hate it - but there are ways to make it easier! Other students feel overloaded and overwhelmed - but there are ways to work more efficiently and effectively! I'm excited to share these tips, tricks, habits, and techniques with my students.
A short story will be provided. It should be printed beforehand. Please - it makes a difference to have it printed rather than reading it on the computer. Thank you!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
