When trying to make positive grade and habits changes there is a dependent relationship between motivation and building a study skills toolbox just like those we use in carpentry workshops which are now available at woodworkingquestions website. Woodworking means different things to different folks. Many woodworkers create useful and long-lasting pieces to relieve stress and exercise their creative muscles. They’re hobbyists who know sawdust is good for the soul. Others turn professional.

They’re handsomely compensated for skills in building coveted furniture. But no matter if you’re a master craftsperson or a rank amateur, you need the must-have tools for woodworking.

Because most schools only teach students a handful of study tools, it is very common for even very motivated students to get stuck. Often the prevailing wisdom is that we should wait for students to get motivated before introducing study skills.  But I have found that students often become more motivated after learning a handful of powerful study tools and techniques.  When they have these tools in their toolbox they can make more progress and see the better result with the same amount or less of effort, this is very motivating.  These students are then interested in learning more about how to study faster.
