How do study skills enhance the educational experience?
Study skills enhance the education experience by providing tools to synthesize, understand, retain, and demonstrate competence in an area.

The methods can be reading techniques, note taking strategies, and mnemonic approaches, among others.

How does the research process influence or factor into the work that needs to be done in order to thoroughly investigate a topic?
The research process provides a framework for the steps that need to be taken to gather information, review it, determine its credibility and utilize it for the intended purpose. First you need to identify the research question and refine it as needed to hone in on the question that needs answering. From there the type of information needed has to be determined, and then the source(s) to gather the information from. Once the information sources have been identified, obtain the information, and then produce the end product (paper, presentation, etc.).
Subject: Human Ecology
What is the relationship between human beings and their environment for the purposes of their development?
The relationship between human beings and their environment relative to their development is one that comprises two elements: nature (heredity) and nurture (learned behaviors). In my personal experience, both can play a significant role. I believe it has been shown that nurture is a very strong factor, such that the environment that individuals are exposed to can sometimes override nature.
