Every parent thinks it: group study sessions are nothing more than children sitting around talking about the latest gossip or sharing their favorite memes. To be fair, it’s a reasonable assumption. However, in reality, and if moderated correctly, a group study session can be a powerful learning experience that can help give students the tools they need to succeed.

Your Student Can Benefit from a Group Study Session

If you relate to the introductory statement, The Tutoring Center, Santa Clara CA has some information below to share on just how beneficial a group study session can be.

Sorry, Was That a Name or a Date? I’ll Just Scribble Something…

It doesn’t matter how many times a parent or a teacher tells a student that they shouldn’t write down what a teacher or lecturer says verbatim, you can bet that they will still scribble fast as possible to take down, you guessed it, every word the teacher says! The problem with this method of note-taking is that students simply can’t take down everything the teacher says as quickly as it is being said. Unfortunately, this results in a student missing out on valuable information or reference guides because they are too busy trying to remember what the teacher said three sentences ago. As you can imagine, the end product is nothing short of inconsistent and half-written notes. Throughout a group study session, students openly share their notes, allowing one student to fill in the gaps in their notes while the notes they were able to take can be used by another student in the group to fill in their gaps. As each of the notes is passed around, all of the students result in not only a full set of notes but a consistent set, with context being added and understood as the process continues. In addition to the group study sessions, a full set of notes comes in remarkably handy once the group session is over and your student is studying alone. Is your student bringing home a B when you know they are capable of achieving an A+?

But That's Not My Understanding. Are You Sure?

Have you ever been in a group setting, likely when you were at work, and your boss or instructor provided you and your colleagues with the same information and set of instructions? However, what you heard greatly differs from what your colleagues heard. It’s a situation which can occur easily and result in you wasting a lot of your valuable work time on something which isn’t at all what your boss or the instructor wanted. As you can imagine, your boss isn’t going to be too happy about the wasted time or the incorrect assignment or task you completed. Well, thought you had completed! Now transfer this example to your child’s classroom where each student is provided with the same information, yet understands it a little differently. Maybe it was a nuance they picked up on which wasn’t there or they just heard it completely differently than everybody else. In these instances, a student spends precious school-time and homework time working towards completing an assignment which they weren’t given in the first place. Just as your boss wouldn’t be impressed with what you hand in, so too will your student’s teacher be unimpressed because your youngster didn’t follow their directions.
