This practicum was designed to increase the use of study skills of sixth-grade students in the social studies. Study skills pretests were administered to students with results showing student difficulties in acquiring the concepts of social studies and achieving passing scores on tests. A unit on study skills was integrated within each chapter with emphasis on using resource materials, interpreting data, and creating outlines for use as study guides. Individual projects, group activities, and games were used to reinforce each skill. Posttests at the end of the study skills unit indicated the majority of students learned how to effectively use resource materials, interpret data, and write outlines. Chapter test mean scores during implementation showed improvement of students' abilities in acquiring social studies concepts and in achieving higher test scores. (EH)
