  When it comes to group study sessions, it’s easy for a parent to think that they are nothing but a social activity. However, in reality, they can be a powerful study resource. While there will always be groups of students who utilize their study time for social interactions, when it comes to group study sessions, if facilitated correctly, they can be a great way for students to improve their learning and their notes.

Don't Discount the Benefits of a Group Study Session

To help sway you from your likely thought that a group study session is nothing more than an exercise in social activity, The Tutoring Center, Upland CA has the following post for you to read.

The Right Understanding

Have you ever been at work in a group meeting and been given instructions which you were sure you understood, however, when the time came to submit your completed work, you realize that you not only misunderstood the instruction, but all of the hard work you put into your assignment can’t be applied and is irrelevant? Now consider this situation occurring in your student's classroom where all students are given the same instructions, however, your student hears it a little differently or picks up on a nuance which wasn’t really there. As you can guess from the example above, and potentially even your own work/life experiences, this can result in your student studying hard and completing an assignment to its fullest, only to hand it into their teacher and find that it has nothing to do with what the teacher asks. For your student, this not only hurts their self-esteem but it can also result in a missed grade, or even worse, a failed grade! During a group study session, each student is encouraged to share their perception of what is required along with having any misperceptions corrected. As you can imagine, this is remarkably helpful for all students involved with each student being ‘on the same page’ moving forward. If your student is struggling with a particular lesson or subject, or you just know that they are capable of returning home with grades higher than they are, tutoring can help.

Did You Get the Correct Date?

When it comes to lectures or even just a teacher presenting information verbally, it only takes a slip of the wrist to write down an incorrect date or for them to be so busy furiously writing what the teacher has just said that they missed out on the important reference information which followed. As an example, if your child’s teacher provide a helpful piece of information and then provides further reading suggestions which your student mishears, it can result in them reading a lot of information and incorporating this into their homework which is not only irrelevant to the lesson but can also seriously derail their ability to complete the assignment. During a group study session, each student openly shares their notes to not only help other students to fill in some blanks or correct a slightly misheard date but also allows other students to do the same for them! As an example, imagine a situation where the teacher provides information regarding the introduction of an animal into a foreign country, however, instead of hearing 1890, your student hears 1880. Just a small mistake, right? Unfortunately, this can not only lead your student to further confusion when they begin searching for information about the incorrect date, but, if it isn't picked up, can actually result in misinformation making its way into your student’s assignment, leaving them with an assignment which doesn’t meet the requirements and is plain incorrect. However, through a group study session, each student has the opportunity to flush out any small inconsistencies which could have a serious negative impact on their learning and their school performance. In a matter of minutes, small mistakes are easily corrected, leaving participants with a powerful study tool.
