Teach her the PAGE Method to make studying easier. PAGE stands for Prepare, Ask, Gather and Evaluate. Here’s how:

1. Prepare. Browse through each page of the assigned reading for five to 30 seconds per page. Look at the headings, illustrations, maps and charts.

2. Ask. Go through the assigned chapter again. Identify key words and concepts (often in bold or italics). Come up with a short list of questions.

3. Gather. Read the chapter section by section. As you finish each section, take notes and write down any questions you may have.

4. Evaluate. Answer any questions in the textbook. Answer your own questions. Look at the main ideas and subtopics. Can you summarize each section? Can you give details to support main ideas? If not, go over those sections again.
