SLS To Host Study Skills Workshop

The organization's logo

Over three separate Sundays this winter, St. Luke’s School will be hosting Successful Study Skills 4 Students, or S4, on campus for the benefit of interested students throughout Fairfield county. The three workshops will be held on Sunday January 29th, Sunday February 5th, and Sunday February 12th. The workshops will last from 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM on their respective days, totaling seven and a half hours of study skills instruction. The entry fee for the workshop is $395.

S4 describes itself as, “a unique student-centered organization, run by passionate educators and administrators, whose commitment and dedication is focused on helping students, in grades 6 through 12, achieve their full potential.” The workshop is run by certified teachers and aims to teach middle and high school students the following ten skills:

  • Goal setting
  • Time management
  • Note-taking methods
  • The importance of asking questions
  • Active reading strategies
  • Understanding main ideas and important details
  • Using pictures and graphic organizers
  • Summarizing to learn
  • Notebook organization
  • Quiz, test and exam preparation strategies

Although this workshop is not run by St. Luke’s, the administration enthusiastically endorses it, and would like to stress the importance of good study skills for students both in and out of the classroom. You can learn more about S4 at their website, and you can register middle school students here and upper school students here.
