Passive Versus Active Learning
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     We've all joked about doing it. Some of us have even tried it- putting the textbook under our pillows the night before the test. We hope that the material will magically filter into our brains as we sleep. Of course, it doesn't work. We need to learn how to study actively.
 
2     Many students take a passive approach to learning. They think as long as they read the textbook and listen to the lecture, they'll get it. They might even read over their notes now and then. But when it comes time to take the test, they don't have a clue. But hey, they studied, right? Wrong!
 
3     To really learn, you have to get active. You have to get "into" your studies. Get in the "zone!" You can't just sit back and hope it comes to you. You have to go after the grades you want.
