Critical Study Strategies


6th, 7th, or 8th Grade

9:00 am to 12:30 pm | February 8, 2020

Lafayette Library (Oak Room) Lafayette, CA | $275


We arm students with the tools and strategies they need to be successful, independent learners and self-advocates.

This workshop is ideal for students who missed out on either Mastering Middle School or Middle School Blitz last summer, or for any students who could use a mid-year refresher!

Middle school students are faced with the demands of increasingly complex homework, long-term assignments and outside activities—plus students want to be more independent! Good study strategies are essential in order to successfully manage these competing priorities, yet these strategies are rarely taught in schools.

Middle School Booster is a fast-paced, hands-on 3.5 hour workshop designed to make middle school easier to manage for your student.

We teach students to have control over their time and their workload so they can be self-sufficient, independent learners.

Middle School Assignments are More Project-Oriented than Ever

Often students are assigned multiple projects at once. They struggle just to understand what’s being asked of them, let alone to create a timeline or plan of action.

We give students the tools and techniques they need to complete large or small projects independently.
