PRESTON — At Webster County Schools, students are offered a unique class called ‘Study Skills’ which is designed to assist students in better understanding the material from each of their content area classes and to do better on the CRCT. During each week, days are assigned and lessons planned for each of the content areas. Mondays are for reading and Thursdays are for math, etc. Teachers work to plan creative ways, such as technology, to redeliver classroom material so students gain a better understanding of the content. As seen here, James McCullough’s study skills class was reviewing ‘erosion’ by watching a BrainPop video on the SmartBoard. After watching the video, students took a quiz. Students in the photo are Kabrian Moses, Trewan Wright and and Jalen Mosley.
