Recognizing that many middle and high school students would benefit from study skill support in time management, organization and executive functioning, the popular S4 (Successful Study Skills 4 Students) program is being offered at Weston Middle School.
Two concurrent workshops have been scheduled, one for middle schoolers, the other for high schoolers, Wednesdays, Jan. 30 through Feb. 27, 5 to 6:30 p.m.
S4 workshops recently held in surrounding towns were completely full.
Research demonstrates that when students know how to study they are more confident, engaged and happier at school.
The evidenced-based S4 program is founded on proven educational research, and taught by accredited, dynamic teachers. In a highly participatory presentation, students will learn essential, easy-to-implement skills needed for successful learning and studying, including:
- Note taking.
- Time management.
- Understanding main ideas and important details.
- How to build on new ideas and information.
- Using a planner.
- Active learning.
- Asking questions to self-advocate.
- Memorization strategies.
- Goal setting.
- Test preparation strategies.
“We know that implementing even a single new skill can make a big difference in a student’s love of learning,” Ms Sagalyn said.
Limited class size of 15 ensures that all students get personalized attention. S4 supplies all materials, including exclusive how-to guides for at-home support.
The cost of the workshop is $395, about $53 per hour.
