REDDING, Conn. – Southport-based Successful Study Skills 4 Students will host a study skills workshop for high school students at Joel Barlow High School in Redding in August.
For the first time, a program for middle school students is being offered. The workshops foster academic achievement by teaching students key study strategies that help them learn while reducing stress.
The S4 summer workshops will take place just ahead of the academic year so that students will be ready to put their new strategies to work right away. The S4 summer workshop for high school students will be held Tuesday, Aug. 19, to Thursday, Aug. 21, from 1-3:30 p.m. The workshop for middle school students will be held earlier the same days, from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Both workshops will be held at Joel Barlow High School, 100 Black Rock Turnpike. The workshops are taught by experienced teachers, and class size is limited to 15 students.
The S4 program is founded on educational research and evidence-based studies. Its highly interactive approach is designed to clearly demonstrate how to apply students’ own curriculum and course material to the taught methodologies and systems. Students will learn study skills ranging from time management to note-taking to test and homework preparation to overall organization
“We are excited to offer the S4 workshops at Joel Barlow High School for fifth summer,” said S4 President Michelle Sagalyn. “We at S4 also look forward to benefiting the educational needs of middle school students with our workshop at JBHS."
S4’s program provides materials that complement and outline the workshop sessions. They are designed for ongoing student support at home. Each three-session, 7.5-hour workshop session costs $395. There is a 10 percent sibling discount.
