The 5 Essential Skills your child must have to be successful in school are:

1. Organization: Students must possess the ability to have the right materials, in the right place, at the right time. Disorganization severely limits a child’s opportunity to learn.

2. Time Management: Students must plan and meet deadlines, as this is critical for test preparation and the completion of projects/homework/papers.

3. Speaking/Listening: Students must know how to ask the right questions AND listen for the answers. This is essential for learning and advocating for one’s self.

4. Note Taking: Students must know how to best format notes and capture information. This is important because 80% of information comes directly from the teacher.

5. Studying for Tests: Students must understand studying for a test does NOT begin the night before. Studying for tests is easier than you think and is critical for success.

A study done by Ohio State University proved students were up to 600% more like to graduate from college when they possessed these skills. But the question is HOW does one go about learning these skills?
