Because instruction in study skills involves all teachers of all subjects at all grade levels, the teaching of these skills should be regarded as the responsibility of the entire faculty of a school. Research points out that many pupils do not transfer reading and study skills to their content subjects. Therefore, the subject matter teacher must work on these skills which are pertinent to his subject.! A program in a school which includes work on the needed study skills in the content subjects as well as in language arts and reading classes can result in raising the general academic level of the school and can also make teaching more effective for the teachers and learning more meaningful for the students.
