Study Skills

Study Skills is a class aimed at helping students stay on track with their coursework for other classes. Study Skills is a supported and guided study and work time for students that focuses on executive functioning skills as well. There is a small amount of coursework for this class that can be typically be done with class time. This coursework can be found on Google Classroom. I am able to check to see that students are staying current with homework and preparing for quizzes and tests. Study Skills is also a time that students can get extra help with work that they don't understand or have missed. Ultimately, my goal in Study Skills is that students develop independent work skills, time management skills, and self-advocacy skills that will help them both in school and in the real world.

Please see Google Classroom for eLearning day assignments.
