StudyPro Student Workshops

The StudyPro is excited to bring back these very popular workshops.   We offer a series of 3 FREE workshops for 4th and 5th graders to encourage students to adopt strategies to push through frustration in writing, math and learning overall.

FREE IN-PERSON WRITING WORKSHOPS:

‘How to get unstuck and write’

Middle school on 2/25 and High school on 4/15 

1PM-2:30PM

***PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE ARE IN-PERSON WORKSHOPS***

The StudyPro is hosting a free workshop to provide tools that can enable writers to find the “way out” of a writing rut and “on to” a page. The Writing and Executive Function Coaches at The StudyPro will share how students can jumpstart their writing, how to make writing fun, and how to take the sting out of writing assignments. We will walk students through:

  • Techniques for getting unstuck in writing,
  • Strategies to better understand writing assignments,
  • Effective writing “tools”, e.g. T-Charts, Mind Maps, Acrostics, and more

Students will learn how their thoughts about writing impact how they write and leave knowing that for every writing roadblock there is a strategy they can use to help them through it.

The StudyPro is offering three free workshops for 4th and 5th Graders to help students understand and begin to develop a growth mindset. All workshops are free, but limited to 20 students.

Growth Mindset: Getting Our Minds Set for Math – Feb 4th from 1:30 – 3pm
How many times have we heard “I’m just no good at math!”? The truth is that “being good” at math means honoring the process vs. pushing fast to get the answer. However, many students struggle with the four best practices that are goals for all mathematicians. During this workshop, we will focus on these best practices as well as teach strategies students can use to work through challenging problems and reduce anxiety when they get stuck.

Growth Mindset to Push Through Frustration – March 4th from 1:30 – 3pm
In this workshop, we will (re)learn what a Growth Mindset is, and why it matters, especially focusing on what we can do when we get frustrated. We will look at when we get “stuck”, how we react, and what words and approaches we can use to help “push through” that frustration. We will also introduce some new strategies for chunking work and reading, and will provide each student structures to ensure that there is adequate time to get homework done.

No matter how much we want to maintain a Growth Mindset, writing can be tough! Whether it’s getting started, knowing what to write about, figuring out where to take a story, or being open to editing our own work, writing can put anyone on the brink of giving up. During this Growth Strategies workshop, we will explore different types of writing, practice ideas to get started when you are stuck and learn how to look at editing in a more positive light.
