Beginning with the philosophy that nothing is more important to long-term academic success than learning the best ways to learn, six time award-winning producer/director Dan Sperling releases, “Great Homework and Study Skills for Middle and High School, on DVD and VHS, at http://www.homeworkandstudyskills.com and http://www.fivestareducational.com

“The shortcomings with earlier homework and study skills videos,” says director Dan Sperling, “was that they didn’t go into enough detail when it came to actually discussing study skills methods and strategies, and they lacked entertainment value. Our 85 minute DVD (or VHS) is remarkably comprehensive and uses an entertaining storyline and great teen actors to keep the interest high.”

“Great Homework & Study Skills gets the highest marks in delivering clear, detailed, subject matter while at the same time, providing a major dose of entertainment value!” writes Dr. Paula Vecchio. “The story starts with four students at Laurel Sharon High School, who have more in common than their long-term friendships. All of them are having difficulty with their homework and study skills.”

“One by one, these friends come to realize that their academic success in general, and their study skills in particular, really do impact their dreams. With the help of super tutor Reece Somerset, a cool English teacher; Kiley, Manny, Rainey and JoJo start turning their lives around.”

“My original intention was just to write a review of the product,” says Dr. Vecchio. “I ended up getting the teacher lesson plans too, and going through every one of them with my son. They’re terrific!”

“The academic roadmap thoughtfully laid out by author Mary L. Dennis in the teacher lesson plans,” available in middle school and high school versions, “may be the most important educational excursion your students ever take.” says Producer Dan Sperling.

Lesson 5 is devoted to organizational habits and time management tips. Lesson 6 focuses on improving one's listening and concentration skills. In lesson 7, students learn our top ten note taking tips, and apply the Cornell Method of note taking.

Lesson 8 explores concept mapping and alternative note taking approaches. In lesson 9, students review and practice the SQ3R Method as well as compare the three basic styles of learning. The final lesson focuses on test taking skills.

Teachers and parents who are excited to make a difference in their children’s academic careers are encouraged to view a free video clip of this program, and to learn more by going to: http://www.homeworkandstudyskills.com or http://www.fivestareducational.com.
