Think Well, Learn Well: Transforming Good Students into Great Learners Are you frustrated by studying hard but still earning disappointing grades on your exams? This free, 3-part workshop will show you how to deepen your thinking as you are learning, so your learning outcomes match the levels of thinking required to succeed on your exams.  We will discuss factors contributing to disappointing performance.  We will review the salient lessons from Dr. Stephen Chew’s Oct 9 presentation, “How to Study Long and Hard and Still Fail.”  We will focus on and practice extensively the skill of setting metacognitive learning goals that trigger more effective thinking and deeper learning needed for excellent performance in your classes.  Finally, we will look at a textbook navigation technique that applies metacognitive learning goals specifically to your textbooks. This workshop series takes place on three Tuesday evenings this November: the 12th, 19th, and 26th, from 7:00-8:00 pm in Admin 212. It is limited to 15 participants. We ask that you commit to attending all three sessions. If you are interested, please contact Leslie Foley to register. foleylj@plu.edu 253-535-7520
