Supporting your (Secondary School) Child to Develop Positive Learning Habits


Student Learning Ed Centre Logos

Research states that parental engagement in children's learning in the home makes the greatest difference to student achievement. 

This webinar is designed to assist parents and guardians in supporting their child to improve their academic performance. 

The aim is to inform parents and guardians about the small but invaluable support structures they can put in place at home which will in turn promote a more positive learning experience for their child and help develop a synergy between school and home.

It will focus on a range of topics including: 

  • enhancing learning environments
  • organisational skills
  • strategies to help students avoid procrastination
  • strategies to support the highly motivated or anxious student 
  • strategies to motivate the reluctant student 
  • Strategies to enhance students' informative retrieval
