Study skills are the skills you need to enable you to study and learn efficiently – they are an important set of transferable life skills. In this important GPS event starting at 7:00pm, Patrick Donohue will define how teens can develop a growth mindset, perseverance, a level of “grit” and gain the skills that will put them on the path to success. We will examine the key areas where parents can improve their students learning effectiveness: Organization, Daily Habits, Vision and Mindset. Here are the strategies to become a supportive coach, and increase your child’s motivation to help them reach their full potential. Patrick Donohue is a former teacher, coach and school administrator and the author of Red Zone Fathering.
The Study Skills program will be offered at 7:00pm in Spanish by Glenbard East Spanish teacher Janet Reece. Circle the calendar now for these solution-minded workshops.
