Middle School Blitz Teaches Middle School Students the Tools and Strategies They Need to be Successful

Entering 7th and 8th grades, study strategies are essential for students to successfully manage increasingly complex homework, long-term assignments, and outside activities—strategies that are seldom taught in schools.

  • Coaches are empathetic and skilled with teaching students of all abilities.
  • Participants gain continued access to Google Classroom for additional resources.
  • Attendees learn SOS4Students’ acclaimed executive function skills and study strategies.
Middle School Blitz is a faster paced review of the 6th grade “Mastering Middle School” workshop, specifically for 7th and 8th graders. Students who missed out on Mastering Middle School as incoming 6th graders, or would benefit from reviewing the material prior to 7th or 8th grade, are encouraged to enroll.
