Teaching Parents and Students the Secrets of High School Success - Workshops

Change a student's educational success and you will change his or her life forever. Outside of family, the high school experience is the number one influence on a young adult's success or failure in college and then in the work world.
In my workshops, I show parents and students how to succeed in school, based on advice that hundreds of teachers have contributed to help create this material. Even just one of the ideas I talk about could make a huge difference for a student and his or her family.
By the end of a "Game of School" workshop, parents and students will...
  • Learn how to take all that time spent in school and shape it to a student's unique strengths, so he or she has the confidence to really win at school and at life;
  • Avoid the typical parent-child struggles around school and homework, so parents can strengthen and truly enjoy their relationship with their teen;
  • Figure out how to help a child who hates school, so parents are not so worried;
  • Review the basic classroom and study skills for doing well on class assignments, tests, and homework, so day-to-day school life for a student is easier;
  • Uncover the basic, intermediate, advanced, and "master" techniques that the top students use for school success, so that parents and students feel in complete control of the learning process;
  • Discover the "Four Levels of Learning," so parents can partner with their student to build a solid game plan for his or her high school and college years;
​This is a program that is designed to allow parents and students to attend together, but can also be very helpful for either alone, and even for teachers and librarians wanting to help students. Attendees get a PDF version of the presentation slides and a workbook.
In addition,  I also cover:
  • Understanding how public schools actually work, so parents know how to get the best for their student and not feel like a victim of the system;
  • Helping teens build strong relationships with teachers, staff, and administrators, so they have a devoted "team" determined to help them get through school and then into a great college or university;
  • Identifying the practical skills that schools don't teach, so a student learns how to manage money, pay bills, and be a capable adult;
  • Finding out what the best homeschooling practices are and how parents can incorporate them into their family life, so students can become life-long learners;
  • Building a home-centered, school-supported model for learning in families, giving parents and teens a lifetime vision of success in life.
The long-term costs of a student not feeling confident about school are way too high and not necessary. I hope you'll allow me to help. Email me for information on coming to to talk at your school, library, or parent group, or click here for the online webinar.
