Camp Description

This program investigates a student’s individual learning style and introduces them to a diverse number of study skills. Students will complete a multiple intelligence inventory to determine his learning style. There will be instruction on different study tactics for each learning style. The class will include instruction on note taking skills, time-management, and general test-taking skills.
This class is split into two periods with two short (10-minute) breaks. The first period is instruction, and the second period practical application. Students should bring a notebook and pen or pencil. All other materials will be provided. Students must be picked up within 15 minutes of the end of the session.
