Time Management and Study Skills
(Mondays and Wednesdays, 3:30-4:30PM. Open to students in grades 6-9.)
There’s a lot to remember these days. Between projects, and sports practice, community service, class schedules and everyday homework, school life is busy life! So how can you thrive? Plan your work and work your plan! In this small group workshop, we will demystify school and learn how to approach the year with energy, organization and a calm, cool and collected plan of attack. Things We’ll Work On: scheduling, study systems, planning homework + projects, managing belongings across locations, stress management, goal-setting + goal-achieving, self-regulation, self-advocacy, need to do vs. want to do, transitions , setting up productive work environments.
College Application Essay Writing
(Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4-5PM. Open to students in grades 10-12.)
Who are you? What matters most to you? Where do you see yourself in the future? The college application essays can often ask us difficult questions that we’re unsure how to answer. They also ask us to talk about ourselves in ways that can be vulnerable and uncomfortable. However, the process doesn’t need to be as stressful as it’s often rumored to be. By working through a process of reflective exercises and memory writing activities, we’ll be able to select topics that we can write about with confidence and passion. We’ll also workshop certain elements (without revealing personal details we’d prefer not to) so that this doesn’t have to be a process limited to our own brains and voices of doubt and criticism. This is the perfect low stakes environment to work through your ideas for your essay, gaining confidence in your voice, and holding yourself accountable so that you’re not rushing to meet any future deadlines.
