ACADEMIC SUCCESS TIP
Posted September 3rd, 2009 by Kimberly K. Ballard
Using a Long Weekend to Your Advantage: Begin the process of outlining. Research shows that you will understand and remember material better if you do your own work to learn a course. The process of outlining requires you to wrestle with the topics and sub-topics so that you really know them instead of knowing them generally. Making your own outlines helps you to have long-term retention of the material rather than merely short-term regurgitation of material for an exam. Use this weekend as your starting point for outlining. For great tips on outlining, review the article Creating a Course Outline posted at http://www.law.louisville.edu/academics/academic-success. You are also invited to attend an outlining workshop next Thursday, September 10, in Room 275.
