    Now in its 5th year, this fun summer course takes a lighthearted approach to teaching some serious academic and organizational skills -and employs a set of proven tools to get it all done. Funny scenes from the movie Diary of a Wimpy Kid prompt lively activities and discussion, all geared toward boosting your child’s organization and written production.

    Students become proficient in using Inspiration Software to:

    -Tackle the writing process: first plan and organize ideas, then start and complete writing assignments
    -Break down complex assignments: separate work into manageable chunks so it's easier to start, stay on track and complete
    -Organize information based on their preferred style: visual concept maps, outlines or both
    -Get teacher feedback before investing lots of time and energy: quickly "show" them the plan to ensure it's on track

    Students learn to use Google Tools to:

    -Manage time: use Google Calendar to create "print and post" schedules for the week (important due dates, after school activities, homework time, etc.)
    -Keep track of assignments: organize writing and classwork using Google Drive
    -Remember important commitments: set email or text reminders for scheduled events

    New this summer: Activities that teach about executive function:

    -The meaning of the marshmallow test (followed by one or two marshmallows)
    -What are these skills and why do they matter -in school and in life
    -How using the tools taught during the course will set them up for success

    The course also explores Sean Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens. Through funny stories about actual students and the Wimpy Kid's cast of characters, participants explore the theme of choice and the benefits of good habits -in school and in life.

    We live in an age where the assumption is that everyone should attend college. Is that true? We will ask the question of why a given individual should go to college (there are many correct answers!) and why a different route may be a better alternative. We will also discuss gap years, the ‘stepped college approach’, colleges with special programs, and solid alternatives to traditional 2 and 4 year colleges.

    Asuggested donation of $10 to offset costs. We ask
    that people RSVP by sending email to info@evolibri.com, indicating the event you plan on attending and the number of attendees. We hope to see you there!
