Helping Children Learn

Our first workshop for the 2011-12 school year will be Saturday, Sept. 24th entitled, Powerful Strategies to Help Children Become Better Learners, presented by Nathan Levy. Mr. Levy, a former South Brunswick Principal, has written more than 50 books, used around the world to help increase student learning.  His presentation will explore a variety of methods used to reach learners in unique and fascinating ways.  An insightful and often humorous speaker, Mr. Levy discusses the best ways for parents to encourage children to develop fluency in thinking and writing.

What are some of the stumbling blocks that you’ve encountered in helping your children to learn and become better students?  Do you find certain subject areas more difficult than others? How about ages?

More importantly, have you discovered any ideas or methods with which you’ve found success?
