Like Michelle I'd love to know of a resource that helps teach your child to study! Anxious to hear your ideas!
How would you suggest teaching your child to study? I discovered this year that my 8th grader needs help in this area. I haven't done much testing in our homeschool so far and this year my daughter didn't do as well with her foreign language and math programs as she could have because there were tests and she didn't know how to study. She mostly understood the material, but forgot it by the time she took the unit tests. I am especially unsure since both programs are online and video based, so there are no textbooks to study.
This is where a class specifically for that purpose is really helpful. Study/learning skills don't come naturally to everyone, so a class on study skills would give your student confidence and valuable experience. The Great Courses site provides one that is rated well by most who have used it: http://www.thegreatcourses.com/tgc/courses/course_detail.aspx?cid=1050
