Thrive! Webinar: "How to Win at the Game of School: a Survival Guide for Students and their Parents and Teachers"

How to Win at the Game of School: a Survival Guide for Students and their Parents and Teachers
Part of the “Survive and Thrive!” Series


The Secrets of School Success - How to Help a Teen Play (and Win) the Game of School
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. And guess what: there actually are secrets to school success. Secrets that most students don't know, but should.

We can help teens succeed in school and in life by teaching them how to win at the game of school. The content for this webinar comes from the advice given by hundreds of teachers who contributed to this project. Even just one of the dozens of ideas from this workshop could make a huge difference for a student you care about. ​This is a program that is great to watch together with a student, either during the live broadcast or after you have seen it yourself first (you get the recording, a PDF version of the slides, and a light workbook).
​By the end of this online webinar, you will...
  • Learn how to take all that time spent in school and shape it to a student's unique strengths, so her or she has the confidence to really win at school and at life;
  • Figure out how to help a student who hates school, so you are not so worried about them;
  • 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 a student feels in complete control of his or her learning;
  • Discover the "Four Levels of Learning," so you can partner with a student to build a solid game plan for his or her high school and college years;
  • Understand how to avoid the typical parent-student struggles around school and homework, so you can strengthen and truly enjoy your relationship with your teen.
​The true purpose of education is to help a student become a self-directing and capable adult, and you can be his or her foremost and best partner in this process.
We will also cover:
  • Understanding how public schools actually work, so you know how to get the best for a student and not feel like a victim of the system;
  • Helping a teen build strong relationships with teachers, staff, and administrators, so he or she has 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 knows how to manage money, pay bills, and be a capable adult;
  • Building a home-centered, school-supported model for learning in a family, giving you and your teen a lifetime vision of success in life.
​Don't miss this! As a parent, teacher, or friend, you know that the long-term costs of a student not feeling confident about school are way too high and not okay. 

I hope you'll join me.
