Study Skills

/stu.dy/ /skill/
n.noun

Study skills, also known as study strategies, are approaches applied to learning. They are generally critical to the success in school, considered essential for acquiring good grades, and useful for learning throughout one's life. Study skills are key to achieving academic success. Those, who develop study skills, are able to earn outstanding grades in academics, acquire an abundance of knowledge and are motivated to live a successful, fruitful, and proactive lifestyle.

Despite the possible, monumentally positive ramifications that come along with developing study skills, troubled teens are typically uninterested in participating in the efforts of studying. Troubled adolescents spend minimal time engaging in proactive activities, such as improving study skills. Troubled adolescents, instead, typically focus on comparatively trivial pursuits such as, unproductive friendships and relationships, partying, and other activities that bring instant gratification.

Teens, who fail to develop study skills, are at a great disadvantage. If left to their own devices, these teens will be incapable of reaping the benefits that life's opportunities have to offer. Fortunately, for teens who, so far,
have neglected their studies, there are troubled teen services that can assist them in repairing and reaching academic goals.
