Each week, we will be posting about pertinent articles on educational and school-related topics, how they relate to Engaging Minds students (and parents!), and how to apply this information to your child(ren). We will also be posting original content pertaining specifically to the Engaging Minds approach and philosophy with tips on how to improve and enhance your child(ren)’s learning experience.
 
Our hope for this blog is to make it a valuable resource for parents. To that end, if you read any interesting articles or have any suggestions for topics, please feel free to email Dan Levine at dan@engagingmindsonline.com. Also, please comment on posts in the section below with your own input, ideas, and experiences. While we can’t promise we will be able to use all of your suggestions, we would very much appreciate your contributions and thoughtfulness!

As the end of October approaches, so does the end of the marking period for many students. Grades close, final assignments get turned in, and students have fewer and fewer chances to raise their grade. While this can be a stressful time for many students, the transition between first and second marking periods provides an excellent opportunity for your child to practice skills he will need all year long. Beginning with the end in mind, or practicing “Backward Design” as explained in last week’s blog, can help students finish with strong grades and start their new quarter fresh and confident.

What if we told you that your child can and should begin studying for final exams the moment he sets foot in the classroom? What if we told you that acing a long-term assignment has, in some cases, little to do with that assignment at all? What if we told you that success has to do with day-in, day-out minutiae, not a giant mid-term grade, or an award-winning piece of writing?

Preparation is the key to effective parent-teacher conferences

As you and your children embark on another school year, you’ve undoubtedly embraced many September rituals. You’ve braved new school orientations, picked out the perfect “first day of school” outfit, and stocked up on school supplies together. When you and your family look ahead on your calendars, you likely notice one more ritual on the agenda; parent-teacher conferences mark the beginning of your children’s fall semesters.

The qualities and skills that all successful students share

For this week’s blog, we're taking aim at the age-old question: What are the qualities and skills that all successful people share? And, more importantly, what are the characteristics that successful students have in common? As we conducted our research, some skills and qualities were self-evident and easy to guess, including determination and passion. But other skills were less obvious, even to well-educated and successful people who employ those skills every day. So for some clarity, we’ve compiled a series of studies, from reputable universities, teachers, columnists, and authors, who have seen or studied successful students first-hand.
