Welcome to iStudyforSuccess
With attention spans growing shorter and technology and the internet having such a strong impact on the lives of students, the need to teach study techniques and interaction skills is essential. iStudyforSuccess offers an engaging and thought provoking way to introduce Study, Social, and Soft Skills to students during their impressionable and pre-employment years.
Enhance students’ STUDY SKILLS by teaching a 25-Session Curriculum covering topics like:
- Time Management
- Goal Setting
- Organizational Skills
- Chunking & Study Techniques
- Vocabulary Expansion
- Reading and Note Taking Strategies
- Quiz Creation
The step-by-step nine-week approach helps students to expand their reading comprehension and critical thinking skills, while improving study habits essential for long-term success. The program offers great flexibility and can be used in several ways such as: a study skills class in a school setting, as an in-home or tutoring course to brush up on study skills, as a supplement for counselors offering students extra help, or as a weekly lesson integrated into a core course. It is easily navigable and there is NO ADDITIONAL PLANNING NEEDED! Piloted in an actual classroom, the curriculum was well received by students, faculty, and parents alike. As a Principal stated, “This is the first time I have ever seen middle school students so excited about a study skills class!” The sessions are thorough, appeal to different types of learners, and apply to all subjects.
Build critical SOCIAL and SOFT SKILLS by introducing a 28-Session Curriculum covering topics like:
- Empathy vs. Sympathy
- Telephone/Texting Manners
- Responsibility /Accountability
Social and Soft Skills are quickly being identified as key traits contributing to long-term career and personal success. If not aware of the term “Soft Skills,” they are those personal traits that show a presence of moral compass, social grace, and good ethics, defining a person’s character. The 28-Session Social and Soft Skills Curriculum, which is a part of the iStudyforSuccess program, is recognized for building self-respect and helps to facilitate interaction and communication with others. Introducing these skills can create respectable leaders, positive role models, and great team members. Each skill has been designed as a mini-session and can be presented anytime independently or within the iStudyforSuccess Study Skills curriculum when applicable. At the end of each session, a “takeaway” will be offered to give students a chance to keep the skill in the forefront of their minds – making it a part of who they are!
