Valerie Otheim, Instructor
These weekly workshops are designed to encourage specific skills, strategies, traits, and attitudes of successful students, grades 7-12. Workshop topics include “executive skills” such as time management, organization, and attentiveness; “learning styles” for utilizing individual strengths/intelligences; general study skills for effective note-taking and test-taking; and specific academic skills for Sound Learning math, history, science, literature, and composition courses. Students participate in weekly workshop activities and are accountable for completing at-home assignments related to each topic. Throughout the school year, specific character traits are highlighted to reflect the meaningful purpose of work and create a better understanding of their “vocation” as students. Parents will be included in a variety of activities as needed for student accountability.
