How Parents Can Support Their 21st Century Learners
This generation of learners is quite different than the one that came before them. Parents are aware that their children learn differently than they did in school, but they don't always know exactly why. What should you know about your child as a student? Below is some valuable insight into what 21st century learners are all about and how you can support your child at home:
Writing is one of the most important skills a child will acquire as a student—and also one of the most difficult to master.
It doesn't take an education professional to know that when it comes to learning, each person is unique.
The long-anticipated redesigned SAT is almost here, and if your high school student is planning to take this exam for the first time next spring, he or she will definitely be impacted.
It's important for students to be continually building up their vocabularies over time.
Developing study skills in middle school is the foundation that students will use to excel. Students that hone these skills will have a bright future.
Remember the days when your son or daughter rushed in from school, gave you a big hug and gleefully sought praise for a top grade on an assignment or test? That may seem like ancient history if your child is now in middle school. More likely you've noticed your child shying away from physical affection, experiencing odd and dramatic mood swings, and becoming a lot more interested in popularity and peer pressure than pleasing you.
