Sharpen your study skills and strengthen your writing habits in this one-week workshop placed shortly before the new school year begins! In this program, students further develop their academic habits. The habits that will be examined most closely include: writing and outlining practices, proofreading, homework and concentration habits, techniques for reading, techniques for memorizing, a short review of mathematical subjects taught in the previous school year, habits to improve time management and organization, techniques for test-taking (including standardized tests), and effective note-taking strategies. As students examine their academic habits, they will set goals for the upcoming school year based on incorporating new study habits into their academic routines. Staff Andrew Reed, Head of the Middle School, directs and teaches the program.
