Study Skills Video Series

Table of Contents

Each study skill topic includes a short video lesson, a printable worksheet with exercises, and a full video review of the worksheet. The PDF attached includes detailed descriptions and recommendations about each study skill topic, but this first page provides all of the YouTube and PDF links (underlined text). The video lengths and a brief description of the worksheet are listed.

All of the videos are stored on the Hamilton Humanities YouTube channel. However, the videos are unlisted, which means that they do not appear in search results. Anyone can access the videos and worksheets, but they must be provided with the appropriate link. The Table of Contents on page 1 contains the individual links for each of the videos and worksheets. The header columns also include links to playlists for the lessons and reviews, as well as a Google Drive folder containing all of the worksheets.


The videos fall into three different categories — English, Mathematics, and Testing. The Table of Contents lists the lessons in each category in the most logical order, but each lesson is designed to be taught independently of the others. The best way to move through each topic is: 1) Watch or assign the short video lesson. 2) Practice using the printable worksheet. 3) Discuss the worksheet as a class, or assign the long review video. Expand the video descriptions on YouTube to see clickable timestamps for each chapter and question, as well as the relevant worksheet and video links for each study skills topic.

Best Practices — Students

The video lessons pack a lot of information into a short amount of time, so you shouldn’t skip chapters unless you’ve watched the entire video before. You also should not attempt the worksheet exercises until after you’ve watched the video lesson. The questions were specifically chosen to reinforce the strategies and concepts covered in the lessons. The review videos are long. Remember that YouTube allows you to adjust the playback speed of the videos. You can set the review to double speed, and then slow the video back down when you get to questions that confused you. You can also expand the description and use the chapter links to jump to specific question numbers.

Best Practices — Teachers

The video lessons were designed to be short enough that you could show them in a classroom without students getting bored. You should still wait to pass out the worksheets until after the lesson is over. Of course, you could use the video to help you create your own lesson around the worksheet. The long review videos are not recommended for classroom viewing. They’re great for individual students who want to thoroughly check their answers, but large groups will have trouble focusing for the entire length of the review. Instead, use the review videos to plan out your own instruction around the worksheets. The majority of the questions were designed to spark class discussion, instead of a mere recitation of the answers — even in math
