Jan-Michael’s Answer

I would suggest to start out with one specific question then try to learn or answer the question through research....another word I like to use for myself and kids is satisfying curiosity. If it's a question that you have an emotional connection to, you're likely to put more effort and your mind will be actively engaged in it thus making the most of your time spent.

From there you will branch possibility to other related topics from the materials you encounter. IMO there is a lot of impact that can result from serendipity and wonder. While a formal curriculum through a formal course may help, I no longer believe that is needed. The amount of material and formats available to learn about social subjects and others is countless in today's world.

One thing to keep in mind is social subjects, specifically, will be authored from a given perspective, hence try to multiple perspectives on a given topic.

Read from more than one source. You will find that you will understand and comprehend more than you realize. It's also important to talk to others about where, when, why they choose to relocate to the area.

M. Lavern’s Answer

The key to studying any subject is to starts with creating an outline of what you what to learn .
For example : An outline has a heading and at least five sub headings.
For example: we are studying ; US History-US History is your main heading written on one line. The second line is indented and starts with the letter A. for your first sub headings. We are studying about the 13 colonies . A heading should be 13 colonies. B. Geography. and so on. Read the paragraph page and decided what you what to highlight. Ask yourself the following questions for each paragraph you read. Who are we talking about or what subject_ Us History, What is the most important point about the paragraph I am reading. The 13 colonies. When did it happen ? Where did it and why did happen? Always remember the who, what, when and where went creating an outline. Review aloud and if you remember the answer to these questions about the subject move on to add more onto the outline study. Keep a written study outline guide notes in order that you are assigned with dates so you can study for your final test at the end of the year.

T.’s Answer

Scan the headings, subheadings, and illustrations of the chapter first.
the best way to study is to focus on every detail of the subject. Look at the whole picture to get a full grasp of the of the topic. Take a moment to visualize the chapter and reflect on the broad purpose of its lesson. As you do this, you put your brain in a receptive learning mode and giving it a structure to “hang” new concepts on.  ALSO, focus attention on creating conceptual “seperate pieces” of information.
In addition, try to focus on digesting small pieces of information at a time. By doing this, you are making new neural patterns and connecting them with preexisting patterns that are spread through many areas of the brain.” 

Recall, and reflect:
Recalling and reflecting is a study method that etches new neural patterns more deeply into the brain. So, the process becomes just as physical as it is mental. Use simple analogies or comparisons to make concepts memorable. Frame a concept you’ve learned as a simple analogy. Coming up with a way to compare one concept to another gives it a way to connect with other areas of the brain. Write the analogy out by hand and it becomes even more deeply encoded in your brain. Writing by hand converts what you are learning into the “neural memory structure.” this way you’re making actual physical changes to your brain.
