Get organized as you learn and implement skills that will benefit you for a lifetime! Learning to manage your time will give you the freedom to work more efficiently and productively. It’s important to get into the habit of being organized at an early age. It is a life skill that will have a huge impact on students’ successes, not only now, but in the future (especially in college and during career endeavors). Designing each day with a routine and structure will involve learning how to use daily, weekly and monthly planners, as well as creating checklists. In addition, students will take the time to create both short-term and long-term goals, as well as learn their importance. While getting organized can feel like a daunting task, we promise to make it as fun as possible!
Test Taking Skills:
Who really likes taking tests? For some people, it can be a very nerve-racking and stressful experience. With this course, students will learn strategies, techniques and habits that will help ease the tension and give them more tools to be able to take tests with less anxiety. We will work to identify the “hang ups” and develop good study practices to overcome the barriers. Students can make positive changes in this area and it will serve them well for a lifetime!
Staying Safe Online:
Avoiding the internet, these days, is impossible! And while we do our best not to allow our students to roam free on the Internet, chances are they will soon have the opportunity to do so, if they haven’t already. Technology is here to stay, so let’s give students the tools and knowledge to navigate the World Wide Web safely and wisely. This class will demonstrate how powerful the Internet is and will teach them how and why it is so crucial for them to use it properly and securely. Students will learn the magnitude in which the Internet can negatively affect them and the potential consequences for bad decisions. By giving them online safety skills, we are protecting them and setting them up for a more successful future experiences.
