DARIEN, Conn. – If students know how to study, they will be more successful in school.
This seems obvious, but, do they know how?
Whether your student is feeling overwhelmed, overworked, frustrated or simply wants to do their personal best this academic year, they may attend a workshop in Darien where the curriculum is built on evidence-based study skills specifically designed for middle and high school students.
The Depot Teen Center will offer "Essential Study Skills for Middle School Students" from 9-11:30 a.m. Saturdays, Jan. 23, 30 and Feb. 6. Workshops are limited to 15 students. The workshop is $395, which includes all in-class materials.
“Parents, students and teachers agree the S4 Study Skills Workshops are a great way to learn how to study off campus. It is clear that study skills offer the pathway to academic success in school, and we are pleased to host the S4 program here in Darien so that all students may benefit,” said Pam Ha-Stevenson, board member at the Depot.
The S4 program is founded on educational research and evidence-based studies. Its highly interactive approach is designed to clearly demonstrate how to apply students’ own curriculum and course material to the taught methodologies and systems. The workshops are taught by experienced teachers.
The programs are designed to bolster academic confidence, motivation and preparation as academic workload and expectations increase. Skills taught include planning, organizing, executive functioning strategies, as well as quiz, test, and long-term project preparation strategies.
