In this fourteen-week lab class, students are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning and to develop skills to manage their time and assignments. Accountability with other students, teachers, and parents will determine each student's grade. Application and consistent practice of methods learned to increase achievement and reduce stress from procrastination and disorganization will be, in the end, the greatest rewards.
Each class will have a brief instructional time followed by hands-on practice as students set goals and priorities, develop work schedules, and organize papers. Students will also practice listening skills, researching a topic, taking notes from lectures and texts, preparing for tests, and effectively reading for a variety of subjects and purposes.
Students will need to bring assignment sheets and materials from other classes each week to work on time management and organization. Short homework assignments will be given each week to practice skills learned in class.
