L.A.G. Study Card System

LAG Study Cards are an interactive approach to studying that allows students to manage where they focus their study time. The cards are based on our note taking system and are student- generated/teacher-guided. After an initial run through, cards are then separated into three distinct piles based on a student’s understanding:

LEARNING: I AM NOT SURE...
ALMOST: I KIND OF KNOW THIS...
GOT IT!: I KNOW THIS INSIDE AND OUT...

When a card is answered correctly it is promoted to the next pile. When a study card is answered incorrectly it is returned to the first pile (LEARNING). The middle section (ALMOST) is for partial understanding and must still be reviewed until students are able to promote it to the last pile (GOT IT!). The goal of this program is to provide to our students a structure to prioritize their studying, focus on concepts/ideas that they are having difficulty with, and manage their study time effectively. LAG Study cards help students to focus their learning. It prioritizes studying by encouraging students to focus on specific concepts/ideas and allows students to “know what they know” and understand what they need to learn.
