Studying with others in a small group is usually helpful to everyone because you share ideas and learn from one another.
Effective Study Groups
A good study group includes no more than six people and everyone in the group shares the idea of working together to do well in the class. Schedule approximately 1-2 hours each time you meet and plan to meet in a location where you can spread out and work without interruptions. If your group meets at the same time in the same location each week there is no question as to where and when the group will be together!
Most study groups rotate the group leader so that the work is divided evenly, and the agenda is emailed with every participant’s assignment for the next meeting. Some groups elect a moderator to ensure everyone stays on track.
Between group meetings, you should supplement your study with independent study and completion of any and all assignments related to the class and/or group.
Ineffective Study Group
A good study group is invaluable. A bad study group – off task, talking about anything other than the class, and socializing more than working – could be trouble. Committing to a study group is a responsibility that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Showing up without your contribution completed is considered grounds for removal from the group.
