A regular learning routine makes a good student

(Sara Gouveia)

A study contacted by the University of Western Sydney and New South Wales Education Department found that a regular learning routine starting from home promotes long term academic success.

The study examined the study habits of three groups of Year 3 students – Chinese, Anglo and Pacific Island student. Dr Megan Watkins (Senior Lecturer, Literacy and Pedagogy, UWS) challenges the myth that Chinese students perform better at school because of a cultural disposition to study. Instead the Chinese students’ academic success were attributed to  more disciplined approach to academic studies fostered from home.
