Game of School Webinar

How to Win at the Game of School: a Survival Guide for Students and their Parents and Teachers
Part of the 'Survive and Thrive!' Series


Outside of family, the high school experience can be the number one influence on a person's success or failure in college, work, and life. This webinar is about helping students understand that there are secrets to school success and then how they can play the game of school in such a way as to become strong, lifelong learners.
The content for this webinar comes from advice given by hundreds of teachers who contributed to a special survey on this topic. ​The true purpose of education is to help students become self-directing and capable adults, and just one of the dozens of ideas from this webinar could make a huge difference for a student you care about. ​You can share these principles with a student or students, or you can invite them to watch it with you, and by registering you will have access to the recording, a PDF version of the slides, and a light workbook.
​By the end of this webinar, you will...
  • Learn how students can take all that time spent in school and shape it to their unique strengths;
  • Find ways to help a student who hates school;
  • Review the basic classroom and study skills for doing well on class assignments, tests, and homework;
  • Uncover the basic, intermediate, advanced, and "master" techniques that the top students use for school success;
  • Understand the "Four Levels of Learning," so you can partner with a student to build a solid game plan for his or her high school and college years;
  • Remove the typical parent-student struggles around school and homework.
We will also cover:
  • Understanding how schools actually work;
  • Helping teens build strong relationships with teachers, staff, and administrators, so they have a devoted "team" determined to help them get through school and then into college or university;
  • Identifying the practical skills that schools don't teach;
  • Building a home-centered, school-supported model for learning in a family.
