The Skills Worksheet includes eleven text boxes, each containing one or more attributes that are relevant to a student’s developmental level. These attributes can be related to a student’s cognitive skills, social skills, or any other skill a teacher feels is relevant.
Students are required to fill in the text boxes with the information they have learned, and to cross-reference text boxes with similar text boxes from other worksheets. There are six required text boxes: background, independent, working, cooperative, learning, and expressive. There are four optional text boxes, which students can fill in as they wish.
Sentence examples and synonyms are using to support their essay. The number of examples should be about fifteen. That is, the sentence should begin with “The car passed by.” Students should first identify the correct word or words for the sentence, then the correct punctuation mark, and finally the word or words to be used.
In order to facilitate and improve learning, there are multiple choice tests and essay types. There are short essay prompts to help them choose one or more points to investigate. Topics covered include time management, organization, reading comprehension, and accuracy.
Independent checks and cooperative skills to determine whether a student can complete tasks independently or has difficulty doing so. The essay examples include how a student responds to a question, chooses among a large group of options, and analyses the main idea of an argument.
Sentence completions involve how a student understands sentence construction. How does he/she resolve sentences? What sentence completions demonstrate learning and is it writing skills?
Emotional literacy is the ability to determine if a student is emotionally vulnerable and how to cope with the condition. With this, it is possible to detect if a student tends to be nervous and sad when making an effort. The essay examples include phrases such as “I felt uncomfortable during the test.”
This Skills Worksheet is designed to assist teachers in building a student’s confidence and academic performance. It can be printed for use at home and used by a teacher, family member, or student to aid in self-assessment, performance improvement, and grade revision.
