Sharpen your study skills and strengthen your writing habits in this one-week workshop placed shortly before the new school year begins! In this program, students further develop their academic habits. The habits that will be examined most closely include: writing and outlining practices, proofreading, homework and concentration habits, techniques for reading, techniques for memorizing, a short review of mathematical subjects taught in the previous school year, habits to improve time management and organization, techniques for test-taking (including standardized tests), and effective note-taking strategies. As students examine their academic habits, they will set goals for the upcoming school year based on incorporating new study habits into their academic routines. Staff: Mr. Andrew Reed, Head of the Middle School, directs and teaches the program.
