Do you have difficulty staying organized and managing your time throughout the school year? Do you need help with planning ahead for long-term projects and studying for tests? Do you find yourself easily stressed by your busy schedule? Planning for Success in Middle School is a camp that will provide you with practical skills to support your academic success and help you manage stress throughout the school year.
During this course we will learn all about executive functioning: the cognitive skills that enable individuals to plan, prioritize, get organized, manage time and set and achieve goals. We will identify our individual strengths and weaknesses and learn to maximize our strengths and bolster our weaknesses. We will discuss and practice strategies in the areas of organization, planning, prioritizing, goalsetting, time management, studying, note-taking and self-advocacy. Additionally, we will learn a variety of stress management techniques and discuss how to apply them throughout the school year.
