SOAR STUDY SKILLS
Can you, your child, or your students relate to any of these comments?
"I did my homework, but can't find it."
"I can't find that paper the teacher gave me."
"I cannot make good on a test."
"I am tired of fighting with my child about homework!"
If you answered yes...then the SOAR Study Skills Seminar can help. Our consultants were so excited to find this outstanding curriculum and are eager to share it with you!
SOAR® Learning, founded by a certified teacher (Susan Kruger) and learning specialist, has been specializing in study skills since 1996. They continuously research effective learning skills and strategies and have developed a comprehensive study skills curriculum based on years of feedback from the wonderful students, parents, and educators with whom they have worked.
The SOAR® Study Skills program is:
Trusted by educators across the country as in use in over 500 schools nationwide!
Aligned to ACT’s WorkKeys and the 21st Century Skills.
Based on sound, educational research.
SOAR® teaches basic, fundamental learning and organizing skills that allow students to be more efficient and effective in school.
Strategies are presented in a simple pattern…one logical step after another. They learn how to efficiently:
Plan homework & projects
Improve reading comprehension
Communicate with parents & teachers
Most importantly, SOAR® teaches students WHY each strategy works, which provides two benefits:
1) Students are not confused over when to use strategies or how to apply them.
2) Because students will learn the principles behind the strategies, they can add some “personalization,” giving them ownership.
