How to Win at School - a Workshop for Teens and Their Parents

This is a past event


School is almost always the most important influence, outside of the family, on a child's self-esteem and achievement. If your teen feels like he or she is losing in the game of school, that experience can become a life-long painful influence.

In this workshop, you will...

* Discover the three profound secrets to school success that we never really talk about, so that you will feel much more in control of what takes place in your child's education;

*See why almost all parents and students worry about the wrong things, so that you can focus on what really matters to your child;

* Understand how to plan for academic achievement and college admissions, so that you can have confidence in that stage of your child's life;

* Rekindle your hope in positive family relationships related to school, so that you can really enjoy the years together with your teen.

My own father was dean of admissions at Stanford and at Princeton, and he was chairman of the College Board--and yet, even in our family, we never openly talked to me what was really going on in school. Honestly, I’m not sure he actually understood. That may sound crazy given his career, but you'll understand when I tell you the story.

I’ve worked with teachers and librarians for the last fifteen years, and I created what is widely considered the first real modern social network for teachers, Classroom 2.0. I have 150,000 teachers and librarians in my online communities and I hold large-scale, worldwide online education conferences, with tens of thousands of attendees, and hundreds of online sessions, annually. For my Future of Education interview series, I interviewed 400 educators, authors, and thought leaders.

I'm writing a book called "How to Win at the Game of School" and this workshop is about me sharing with you some important information, and then letting you tell me your own stories and experiences.
