Habits of Power Learners
1. Learn by doing—recite, write, solve
Teachers, videos and books prepare learners to practice. Practice causes the brain changes that are the learning.
2. Master every lesson
Just completing an assignment may not be enough. Reach competence by doing enough of what you are learning to do.
3. Get help immediately
After reasonable effort. don’t quit. Get help from teachers, office hours, friends, relatives, classmates, and study groups.
4. Fill-in any competency gaps before each course and assignment.
Falling behind is devastating to learning and motivation.
Payoff: Mastery increases learning rates, so it takes less time to get an A than to just pass.
