    Finals Preparation: Trusted Exam Tips

    The first semester is coming to a close. As many students begin finals prep, here are some trusted tips to help students finish their semester off strong.

    1. Make a plan – It is important that students create a study schedule and stick to it. It is as easy as writing in a planner or creating a list, allocating study time for each subject. This promotes spaced studying and deters procrastination and stress.
    2. Don’t forget about sleep – Busy students might find themselves sacrificing sleep for extra study time. Many exams focus on knowledge of facts, events and data which is stored in the brain as declarative memories. According to Sleep Deprivation and Cognition (2019), sleep deprivation can lead to impairments of retrieval of declarative memories. It is imperative that students feel well rested before an exam.
    3. Prepare the study space – Getting into the right mindset to study can be difficult with distractions. Putting the phone on silent mode and finding a quiet place to study are simple but effective ideas. In addition, students should have printed materials and other needed supplies ready on hand and set daily goals leading up to the exams.
    4. Use all resources available – Many students forget that past quizzes and tests are the best tools for review. In addition to power points, lesson pages and notes provided by teachers, students can use online videos or websites such as Khan Academy to help facilitate studying.
    5. Don’t study alone! Get extra help – Whether its help from friends, a teacher, a mentor or tutor, working with others will help students to solidify concepts and collaborate effectively.

    Remember, preparing for tests and quizzes does not come naturally for all students. The earlier that students learn how to study, the more equipped they are for success in college. For more information on essential study skills taught by the Educational Coaches at The Family & Learning Center, call us at 858 -454-7303 or send us an email.

    Never Settle for “Just Average”

    In his recent blog post, “Where There’s Smoke…” Dr. Selznick shares a story that is all too familiar to our learning center.

    Our staff frequently meets with parents who express that they have had concerns about their child’s learning for several years, but have been repeatedly told by teachers that their child is “doing fine” at school, or their scores are “just average.”

    Often times, it isn’t until the child is significantly behind that the parents begin seeking support outside of school.

    At The Family & Learning Center, we listen carefully to the concerns expressed by parents and help them determine the best course of action to help their child succeed, whether that is with support at our center or from another trusted professional in a related field. You should never settle for “just average” in your child’s education!

    The Benefits of Personalized ACT and SAT Preparation

    When it comes to students preparing for college applications, higher scores on the ACT and SAT usually mean a greater chance of being accepted into a college or university. Although there are many other aspects that colleges consider for admission, it is imperative that students perform well on these tests.

    Having a personalized plan for preparing for these tests is critical for helping a student meet his/her goals. The following are some of the benefits of personalized ACT and SAT preparation for college bound teens.

    Motivation and Student Needs

    Not all students are motivated to study on their own. ACT and SAT preparation may be daunting for a student that already has a full course load at school. A strong preparation program will provide structure and accountability to support the student with studying outside of tutoring sessions. The student can also use this opportunity to learn how to manage his/her study time wisely.

    Individualized test prep caters to a student’s unique needs. A personalized program can help identify challenges and work to improve areas in which a student struggles. A tutor is also an excellent study resource and can help a student understand concepts that are new or unfamiliar. The focused instruction helps a student improve their knowledge of specific content areas without the student having to learn the material on their own.

    A solid test preparation curriculum helps a student identify mistakes and how to avoid them in the future. An individualized program can help a student identify ways in which they should adapt their studying method to reach their target score. Many students do not fully review incorrect answers and fail to understand their mistakes. A tutor can teach effective ways to learn from mistakes by providing concrete examples and help a student figure out which approaches are most effective for approaching specific types of questions.

    Individualized ACT and SAT Preparation

    An individualized program can help a student measure and monitor progress and teach other important skills. It is pretty common for a student to take multiple practice tests to boost his/her score. A tutor can help a student adapt his/her study plan with each practice test in order to reach the target score. Furthermore, a tutor can also teach methods to help students pace themselves under pressure and stress.

    The Family & Learning Center provides Educational Coaching to assist college bound students with ACT and/or SAT preparation. TFALC’s individualized approach ensures that each student’s program is customized to meet individual goals and that all learning needs are addressed.

    Annual IDA SD Conference w/ Maryanne Wolf

    The Family & Learning Center would like to share an upcoming event with you. Save the date for the International Dyslexia Association SD Annual Conference with keynote speaker Maryanne Wolf.

    When:  October 12, 2019

    Where:  Joan B. Kroc Institute of Peace and Justice, University of San Diego

    Cost: $40-60

    Maryanne Wolf

    Maryanne Wolf is a scholar, a teacher, and an advocate for children and literacy around the world. She is the Director of the newly created Center for Dyslexia, Diverse Learners, and Social Justice at the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies. Previously she was the John DiBiaggio Professor of Citizenship and Public Service and Director of the Center for Reading and Language Research in the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human Development at Tufts University. She is the author of Proust and the Squid: The Story and Science of the Reading Brain (2007, HarperCollins), Dyslexia, Fluency, and the Brain (Edited; York, 2001), Tales of Literacy for the 21st Century (2016, Oxford University Press), and Reader, Come Home: The Reading Brain in a Digital World (August, 2018, HarperCollins).

    Reader, Come Home

    Maryanne Wolf has done it again. She has written another seminal book destined to become a dog-eared, well-thumbed, often-referenced treasure on your bookshelf. Wolf weaves her background in neuroscience, education, literature, and technology into a thoughtful exploration of various complex issues related to the reading brain.

    Reader, Come Home by Maryanne Wolf

    In her newest book, Reader Come Home: The Reading Brain in a Digital World, Wolf challenges her readers to read and think deeply about, well, reading and thinking deeply.

    Wolf outlines her concerns about changes in the brain as it adapts to digital mediums. Some of her thought-provoking questions include the following:

    • Will the next generation, immersed in multitasking and digital mediums, learn to develop slower and essential cognitive processes such as critical thinking, reflection, and empathy – all parts of deep reading?
    • Will the seemingly continuous demands for our attention and immediate access to voluminous information change the development of personal storehouses of knowledge and affect our ability to make analogies, draw inferences, and arrive at independent judgments?
    • Will the chain of digital influences ultimately impact critical analysis and empathy in our citizenscore requirements of a democracyand will potential changes in these capacities leave us more susceptible to fake news and demagoguery?

    Clearly, these important questions have much bearing on todays challenging political-social environment. Wolfs letters culminate in a hopeful proposal for a biliterate reading brain. And what is that? Ah, you will need to read Reader Come Home to find out. But you will not regret one moment you spend reading and thinking deeply about the intriguing letters Maryanne Wolf has written to you.

    Back to School Organization

    The beginning of the school year is a time for setting expectations and creating habits. Students who establish strong routines now benefit throughout the rest of the year, and this all starts with back to school organization. If they use their lecture notes to check their recall of information and set up flashcards with vocabulary terms, they are usually prepared for their first tests and maintain a productive study approach.

    If they use a planner to keep track of assignments and prioritize their work, they typically manage their after-school time effectively. On the other hand, students without consistent home routines often end up with piles of unsorted papers, missing assignments, and/or overwhelming workloads.

    Back to School Organization Strengthens Executive Functions

    Many of these crucial habits rely on executive functions, which often do not fully develop until people reach their mid-20s. Executive functions enable people to plan, sequence, and monitor their own actions. To support students who are still developing these skills, adults can provide environments that promote planning, organization, and self-monitoring. Providing students with physical planners and showing them how to turn their upcoming tests and assignments into a daily to-do list is an essential aspect of time management and task initiation.

    Parents can also help by checking and rewarding planner completion until it is a firmly established habit. Similarly, having a weekly organization check-in can benefit students who struggle in this area. With regard to self-monitoring, strategies like verbalizing thought processes and checking work can improve students’ awareness of their own thoughts and actions. When adults model how to talk through their thoughts and double-check their completion of everyday tasks, they show how this strategy works. Students can also grow more independent in self-monitoring by setting up electronic reminders, reflecting on goals, and journaling.

    Supporting students as they set up their school year routines is a complex task. Ultimately, students must become independent in their application of executive function skills, a process which requires making mistakes and learning how to problem solve. However, students must first be provided with tools and modeling that guide them towards using executive function skills effectively. As one expert in the field suggested, “Provide the minimum support necessary for the child to be successful. That’s a flexible maxim: on some days and in some situations, the child needs more support, at other times less. It’s not just kids who are learning as they go—adults who work and live with kids are doing the same.

    Would your child benefit from strengthening their executive functions by learning strategies to be more organized and better manage their time? If so, contact The Family & Learning Center to find out how we can help.
