How to make a productive study group?

Hey, so I'm thinking about creating a study group at my school to help us stay focused. What are some methods to make the group productive and fun without getting too off topic?

Hi there! Creating a fun and productive study group can be a great idea for staying on track. First, you'll want to keep the group size small enough (4-6 people works well) to maintain everyone's focus while ensuring there are diverse perspectives to help with problem-solving. It's also important to set clear goals and expectations for the group—make a list of topics to cover and assign responsibilities for each session.

To prevent the group from going off topic, use a timer to allocate specific amounts of time for discussion and breaks, so everyone stays aware of the schedule. Additionally, incorporating engaging and interactive activities like group quizzes or flashcards can make learning fun. Finally, don't forget to celebrate your achievements as a group after a great study session! Motivating each other and maintaining a positive environment will help keep everyone on track and enjoying the process.
