(NC) The last two school years have been hard for everyone, filled with new challenges of physical distancing, online or hybrid classes, and mask wearing. As the new school year unfolds, here are some tips to make this one a success.
Re-evaluate the workspace. A new year is a good time to review and refresh your kids’ desk setup. This is especially the case if they’ve had a growth spurt or are starting off a new post-secondary program from home. Even simply adjusting the height of the desk or adding a shelf or whiteboard can make the space feel more special and ready for the year ahead.
Work with their learning style. Some of us need total silence to be productive while others benefit from background sound. Think about how your child learns best and get creative with ways they can study, such as recording a voice memo to recap class for reference at exam time or taking photos for a visual learner’s study aid.
Inspire as you anticipate future needs. All the recent time at home with your student may have provided a deeper understanding of your kid’s passions and abilities. See if you can give them the tools to hone those interests now.
A microscope is a classic option for a budding science major, but equally practical are chemical-resistant or solvent-proof pens to survive countless lab experiments to come.
