  • You may delay, but time will not. – Ben Franklin By “time management” we usually mean prioritizing, using time effectively, getting things done instead of putting them off.  Except that we all “manage” time — it’s a matter of how well. If done properly, the rewards are large — and costly if not. Ben Franklin put […] The post Time management is Time Travel, pt 1: Ben Franklin & Managing the Now ap...

  • Do we all have an inner John Wayne, or is grit unique to the gritty few? Is grit a product of circumstance that reveals it or do we need to bring grit to the scene?

Having scolded teachers who politicize their classrooms in my post, “Teach Don’t Preach: politicizing the classroom is not just wrong, it’s bad teaching,” it begs the question of what to do with teachers who don’t know that they’re preaching not teaching and not just with politics.

  • So how can we bridge the gap between students who only do as they’re told and those who learn only what they find interesting?

  • Is it the role of a teacher to impart information or to empower students with the skills needed to find information on their own? When a teacher professes a political position in a classroom, student learning suffers a short-circuit.

  • We hear it all the time. Students say, “I get it when my teacher shows it to me, but I can’t do it on the test.” Then parents tell us that their child “doesn’t test well.” When children say, “I get it when my teacher shows me,” what they’re really saying is that they didn’t […] The post How to know if your student is really learning: “If you can’t teach it you don’t know it” appeared first on Stud...

  • When students say they don’t “test well” or that they “don’t know how to study,” parents and teachers often respond with suggestions — and criticism — to, well, just “study harder.” Great. But what does “study harder” actually mean? We can see how “studying harder” might actually work if we divide learning into the two distinct parts […] The post Five tips on how to “study better” for an exam: ext...

  • What is procrastination?

    Procrastination is an emotion "Why don't you just do it!" "You waste so much time playing video games!" "Do your homework!" It's so easy for parents and teachers to get down on students who procrastinate - they'll drive you nuts because it seems so simple: just do your work! Procrastination is an emotional self-regulation struggle, not a moral deficiency. Procrastinators aren't "lazy," "distracted...

  • “Have you done your homework?” or what else a parent can do to build student academic independence?

    academic ownership Tired of asking your child about homework? All parents want to support their child's academics. But they also want to be able to walk away and watch their child manage school on their own. It's a tricky thing to find that right balance between helicoptering and watching helplessly from the outside. The one risks becoming nagging and backfiring while the other risks missing help ...

  • Parents, take the Academic Needs Survey to help identify your student’s academic situation and solutions

    Do I really know where my student stands academically? When students struggle with one class, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's just that subject that's the problem. A low grade in one class is frequently not an indicator of content knowledge but of a process or academic engagement that that particular teacher or class is requiring over other classes. In other words, the bad grade isn't just b...

  • Helping your child with math tutoring or chemistry tutoring at the beginning of the school year isn't a bad idea. Anything a student can do to get ahead of class and really make sense of the teacher when school starts is great.
