Description

Class Experience

Students will learn methods to take better notes, that they can use for study tools. They will learn strategies to manage reading assignments and read to glean as much information as possible.  Memorization is our brain's job, and we will learn tactics to help our brain maximize its memorizing capabilities.  We will discuss how to plan and make organizational plans that work for us and how to maximize focus and concentration when it counts the most.  Discussion will be held regarding strategies to stave off procrastination, often the enemy of quality work.  Exams are a big deal, and we will discuss how to study for exams and stave off the anxiety that comes with testing.  This class will discuss ways to organize and put together essays and research papers in such a way that grades can be maximized and stress can be reduced.  Last, we will learn how to exercise can help reduce stress and maximize our ability to perform academically.   
Having taken honors class all through high school, maintaining my scholarship in college and earning a Master's degree, studying was definitely something that I had to learn to do, and I had to learn it quickly.  Studying was certainly not something that I enjoyed doing, but I certainly enjoyed the fruits of my labor.   I have helped many young people study for high school and college exams throughout my career as a Life Coach and now as a teacher.  I would love to help your young person find the methods that work for them, so they can taste the success I tasted in my educational career.  
Assignments will be made via the Outschool classroom.  Links will be provided to videos to watch and Nearpod guided activities to complete that go along with the videos.  Students will be provided opportunities to practice some of the varying skills that we learn and discuss in the Outschool classroom their thoughts.  This will be a class where we can learn what works for us as well as various strategies that work for others, maybe they will work for us, too.  It is estimated that this class will amount to 1-3 hours of work a week, depending on the learner.  Students will use interactive tools such as Nearpod, Flipgrid and class polls to exchange information and give one another feedback through the process of learning better study skills together. 
The learner will be provided with all links, printouts and curriculum necessary to complete this course.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The learner will be assessed through class participation, written assignments and informal assessments built into the Nearpod lessons. Students will use interactive tools such as Nearpod, Flipgrid and class polls to exchange information and give one another feedback through the process of learning better study skills together. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
