  • Teach don’t preach: politicizing the classroom is not just wrong, it’s bad teaching

    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.

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...

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...

  • 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...
