  • Course Description

This course is designed to introduce students to study skills and etiquette that will help them be successful in academic classes using hands-on activities, a student planner, and peer support.

Topics to be covered:

  • Setting goals and priorities - learning to do first things first

  • The planner – what is it and how can it help you

  • Google Classroom - getting familiar with it and how to use it

  • Getting organized - creating the right study environment

  • Personality awareness - getting to know our strengths and weaknesses

  • Managing time - learning to stay on top of it all

  • Reading and note-taking - figuring out what's important

  • Etiquette- touching on different topics like phone etiquette (for when we have one) thank you notes -- when to give and how, how to behave in class and large gatherings, etc.

*There will be an end-of-semester exam.

  • Classwork/Homework 

Students will keep a planner to bring to class every week, participate in class discussions, complete hands-on individual and group activities. 

Homework: The homework for this class will be using the planner every day for each class. Other homework assigned for this class will relate to other academic classes taken by the student.  For example, an assignment may be for students to write down the late work policy for their other teachers. 

​Parent Responsibilities: For this age, parents can help their child the most by sitting with them to learn Google Classroom, providing a routine for school work, and create a designated area for them to work, without interruptions.  It is helpful to encourage students to pack up their school things the night before so it is ready in the morning. These behaviors will reinforce what students are learning in class.

​Google Classroom: Each week students may need to print materials needed for class from Google Classroom.
