Setting Up Study Groups
 Overview Pages: 202-203

Studied with classmates

Davis advises the following to help students set up study groups:

  • Tell students about the benefits of study groups
  • Explain to them how study groups work (i.e. different models such as working through selected material together, or having each person becoming an expert in a specific theme and answering other members’ questions, etc.)
  • Offer students who participate in study groups extra credit
  • Stipulate students’ responsibilities in study groups and the ethical practices to which they should adhere
  • Help students locate meeting rooms
  • Limit groups to five or six students
  • In large-enrollment classes, have students sign up for groups scheduled to meet at different times
  • In other classes, let students select their own study groups
  • Use a portion of class time to establish study groups
  • Have the groups meet during one class session
