Lunchtime Program. The Brown Bag

Management” on Sept. 15, presented

Sandra Moore-Pope is very excited
about this year’s programs. She
stresses, “It’s very important for the
students to take advantage of any lec-
tures that will help them, not only get
through the college, but with society’s
everyday problems as well. The
Brown Bag Program creates a positive
thinking environment that helps
students set goals for the future.”

ing habits that aren’t doing you any

Study Tells How To “Work Smart”
For all those students who wish they could retain what they learned in class until final
exams...they can. Not by working harder, but by working smarter.
It’s a matter of using the learning process and the laws of forgetting to our advantage. Just
knowing what happens and why, can help students do things to retain the information received
in class for an indefinite time, certainly long enough to pass their exams.
For instance, we know that, for the student, the average span of concentration on a single sub-
ject is 50 minutes (that’s why most classes are scheduled for 50 minutes).
The continuous influx of new material speeds up forgetting, so we can expect that, after
several hours of concentration on new material, we’ll forget most of what we learned during the
first hour. Study habits should be scheduled with that in mind.
We know that most forgetting occurs immediately after learning. On the other hand, if steps
are taken to remember something the day after it’s been learned, chances are it will stick with
We know that cramming is re-learning. Realizing this, the student can prepare a more produc-
tive cram session.
Reviews, timing the reviews to offset the curve of forgetting, consolidation of material — these
are some of the other keys in the process used to impress the mind with the material learned and
needed to retain.
If done properly, the mind will retain the material in some cases indefinitely. Knowledge of
this process can serve well in school and will be a lifelong asset in other areas.
A report published by a college studies unit details these and other factors we know about
learning and forgetting.
It is a step-by-step plan designed to help students retain classwork and pass their exams. (A
comforting thought that all students returning to school would like to take with them.)
