Forget What You Know About Good Study Habits

            In "Forget What You Know About Good Study Habits," Benedict Carey talks about how all known study habits that students have picked up throughout the years are to be erased and demolished from their minds. Carey reminds us that teachers love to say how all students will obtain more information in their mind if they study in the proper way, which is to study in a quiet place where absolutely nobody can distract you. Carey talks about how many students do not know the proper study habits because nobody has ever taught it to them.
             Carey states that scientists have shown that there are different techniques for studying that students have never learned before. Scientists also say that sticking to one location for studying is not as helpful than if one studies in different rooms. Carey tells us that studies show all students who studied in different rooms for the same subject got a much higher grade on their test. He also states a theory that every parent and adult tells the student they need to have a schedule and have to set goals and boundaries while they are doing homework or studying; this theory is also a lie that many tend to believe. .
             Carey proceeds to say that many might say that children have specific learning styles in which they all learn better in a different way such as being a visual learner, auditory learner, and exedra. Carey states that it is indeed true that children do comprehend in different ways, but they considerately do not need to learn in that specific way because the way society prefers to learn is their own opinion. He says that everybody has their own way of how they like to be taught, but it is not the only way that they should be taught. "The contrast between the enormous popularity of the learning-styles approach within education and the lack of credible evidence for its utility is, in our opinion, striking and disturbing," said the researchers (2).
