Success Starts at Home: Homework Strategies for Cultivating Independence and Self-Advocacy

Patricia Monticello Kievlan, Ed.M., Learning Specialist, Convent of the Sacred Heart High School, San Francisco

School is about more than learning reading, writing, and arithmetic: it’s also about learning strategies for doing homework, studying for tests, and seeking help. Every student does this a little differently, especially students with learning differences, and it’s critical for every student to thoughtfully discover what methods work best and how to communicate their needs to others. Honing these skills can help every student find greater success in school and develop as a self-advocate along the way. This talk will feature proven strategies and ideas for students, parents, and teachers that can help with navigating homework, studying, and self-advocacy in middle school and high school.

Patricia Monticello Kievlan is the Learning Specialist at Convent of the Sacred Heart High School in San Francisco. She holds degrees from the University of Texas at Austin and the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where she studied cognitive neuroscience and education in the Mind, Brain, and Education program. She has worked in the past as a curriculum designer and a history teacher, and she is an enthusiastic student of educational technology and instructional design.
