Six Critical Needs for Making the Transition to High School
Is Your Teen Prepared for High School?
Parents assume schools are preparing their students properly for the move from middle school to high school. But study strategies instruction and support are not the primary focus of schools—even though academic success is largely dependent on excellent executive functioning and well-honed study skills.
Since the job of all students is to “do school” successfully, including completing homework and taking tests, shouldn’t somebody be teaching them how to study and to do their homework?
