Accelerated Learning Techniques for Students (ages 12-15)

accelerated

In today’s rapidly changing technological society, knowing how to learn is one of the most valuable skills we can have. Unfortunately, most of us were never actually taught how to learn. Because of this, many people find learning to be an unpleasant chore rather than a fun and exciting adventure. Well, no more! Learning is fun, especially when you know how to do it quickly and efficiently.

It doesn’t matter if you are a straight A student or barely passing, you can do better in less time! This interactive and entertaining funshop will teach you how to learn faster and have fun while doing it. You will learn the tools and techniques necessary to unlock the amazing potential of your brain and start achieving more than you ever thought possible.

Dr. Joe McCullough is the Physics Program Chair at Cabrillo College where he has been teaching for the last 15 years. He is also a certified trainer and best-selling author of Accelerated Learning Techniques for Students. Joe is an in-demand speaker whose "funshops" are designed using the principles of accelerated learning to optimize learning in a fun and upbeat atmosphere.

Ready, Set, Read! Summer Reading Fun for Students Entering Grades 1-4

 

As kids leave school and summer begins this camp will help strengthen their reading and writing skills, and reading comprehension, while they use their imagination and have fun! Campers will select an author to explore, from an age and grade appropriate library of books selected by the instructor. Working individually and in groups they will each create a story book, including their “author’s statement”, their own color illustrations, and the story they write in the style of their selected author.

We will combine creative writing, mixed media art, group discussions, and reader’s theater to reinforce reading comprehension and English Language Arts skills. Campers will also use fun, educational technology based games to build their reading, writing, and spelling skills.

There will be no testing, and no pressure, and instead we will create a safe space to learn, play, and be creative to help kids build confidence!

Materials fee includes a bound copy of camper’s softcover book. To help the whole family support fun and engaging reading, campers will also take home a summer reading guide geared to their reading interests, handouts, lists of education technology tools families can use at home, and other resources to continue their reading adventure over the school year.

Lori Kearney, MA, currently works at Main Street Elementary School providing reading intervention, English language development, and technology support to students in K-5th grade.
