For many students, the last day of school is just around the corner and summer learning probably isn’t the first thing on their minds. Get tips on how you can make the long summer days fun and educational by joining recognized expert in student success and parent engagement, Maureen Breeze, for the live, interactive webinar, Promoting Summer Learning: Fostering Analytical, Practical, and Creative Intelligence.
Multitudes of research show that students experience learning losses when they are not engaged in educational learning during the summer months. According to Ron Fairchild, Executive Director of the Johns Hopkins University Center for Summer Learning:
- All students experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer.
- On average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills during the summer months.
- Low-income children and youth experience greater summer learning losses than their higher income peers.
- Only about 10 percent of students nationwide participate in summer school or attend schools with non-traditional calendars.
- Reading just 4-5 books during the summer holidays can prevent a decline in a child’s reading scores (http://www.hometuition.ie/blog/?p=72).
Yet many students need a break from the rigor and structure of daily school. During this webinar, LifeBound presenter, Maureen Breeze, will discuss why summertime is great for fostering multiple types of intelligence and will discuss ways you can ignite your child’s curiosity while promoting analytical, practical and creative learning.
This webinar is recommended for parents, educators, counselors, and administrators who want to improve their effectiveness with students in 5-12 grade through a summer of learning. Click on the links below to register for a session.
