S4 program returns to Whitby

After continued popular demand, Whitby School has announced it will offer the Successful Study Skills 4 Students Program to area middle schoolers for a second year.

According to the program’s founders, time management, executive functioning and organizational skills are the essential foundation for academic success because they allow students to be more confident and better prepared for school, while also providing the critically needed tools for life beyond.

Whitby School says that it recognizes that many middle school students would benefit from support in time management, note-taking, study skills, and organization, so it will host the S4 — Successful Study Skills 4 Students program again. And this won’t just be for Whitby students. It’s open to all area middle school students.

The S4 program is founded on educational research and evidenced-based studies, and taught by accredited, passionate and engaging teachers.

Students will learn 10 essential, logical, and easy-to-implement skills, essential for successful learning and studying: Time management and goal setting, notetaking, active reading strategies, using pictures and graphic organizers, understanding main ideas and supporting details, test and long term project planning, summarizing for total comprehension, the importance of asking questions, efficient homework strategies and quiz, test and exam preparation strategies

Because class size is limited to 15 students, program organizers say it ensures that all students get personalized attention. The five-session workshop, which is designed to integrate students’ schoolwork into the program, will be held on Saturdays at Whitby School on Oct. 13, 20, 27 and Nov. 3. The workshop fee is $395.
