Message from the Principal:

Parents/Guardians Still Make the Difference!

Four steps can help your high school student retain information.  Most high school students have mastered the basics of reading.  But remembering what they read? That can be a tougher challenge. To help your teen retain more of what he reads, share this four-step process with him:

See it. Albert Einstein once said, “If I can’t picture it, I can’t understand it.” Tell your teen to read a sentence or a paragraph. Then have him close his eyes and “see” the scene. As he reads, he should also try to retell what he’s read in his own words.
Predict. Good readers constantly ask themselves what they think will happen next.  This is one way to stay focused on what they are reading.
Ask questions.  Both before and after reading, your teen should ask questions. What is the main idea?  What are the differences between mammals and birds? How did te ancient Romans conquer and hold their empire?
Relate it.  New learning is most likely to “stick” if it relates to other things your teen already knows. Help him find those connections.
