Master essential skills through study, rather than learn the hard way.
Prepare for future excellence. You cannot get great performance with ordinary tools. You need to, as Stephen R. Covey says, "sharpen the saw."
Eliminate typical distractions that chew up learning time later.
Learn early, build later. With the information in these courses as a foundation, your child will be better positioned to build an array of marketable skills.
The ability to absorb and retain new material has limits. So that your child doesn't hit those limits,here are some tips you can use to aid in study, retention, and the joy of learning:.
For younger children:
Understand that you are fully capable. Just about everyone gets stuck at a point or two. Don't worry, that light bulb will go on (probably the next day). Just complete the study for the day, but come back to it on your next session. None of this material is out of your reach.
Don't rush. Relax and enjoy the learning experience. You'll actually learn faster that way than if you try to cram.
Keepmind on what you're doing. You will progress more quickly if you aren't distracted by texting or other things that split your attention.
Take breaks. If your mind wanders, just get a glass of water or do something else for a few minutes. But do try to study at least thirty minutes at a time with no breaks or interruptions.
Smart is awesome. Think of kids who are good in sports. Their skill is one kind of learning that people do. While it can help them to be popular, it doesn't do much more than that. The more you learn about useful subjects, the more reason you give adults and even other kids to take you seriously and look up to you. Rather than the surface deep admiration that comes with sports, this is the kind of respect that helps build real friendships with those who are good friends to have.
For older children:
To master the concepts in these courses, or in any other, follow these study tips:
Create a schedule. Unless you schedule the study time (write it into your calendar), the odds are you will keep putting it off. This one factor is why classroom training still appeals to people despite its huge cost.
Decide on a location. If you can't get a quiet spot in your home, go to your local public library and get a room or table.
No interruptions. Turn off cell phones and other sources of interruption. Your study time is your study time.
Do a section at a time.
First, read a chapter or section at your normal reading speed.
Then, think over what you just read.
Then go back through it more deliberately, and take notes on the concepts, principles, and ideas the come to mind. If any relevant examples from your own life come to mind, make a note of those.
Then work the problems at the end of the chapter or section.
Then go back and read the preceding chapter or section. This really reinforces what you learned previously.
When you complete the entire course, you will have read every section or chapter three times. You will really know the material.
Now the question is how to apply what you've learned. If you don't apply it, you will forget all or most of it.
Go through your notes and think of what has occurred recently that might be relevant.
Think through what has happened in the past few days that might be relevant to this course of study.
Throughout your day, jot down things (about events) that seem relevant to this course of study and then set aside time to address those events as if they were problems in the course.
