PEN talk today!

Today I’m giving an extended reprise of my talk from Parents Education Network’s EdRev event last spring. It’s called “Success Starts at Home: Homework Strategies for Cultivating Independence and Self-Advocacy.” 

Here’s the blurb from PEN’s website:

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.

If you’re visiting my site for the first time, welcome! I’ve posted my slides from today and some related links under the “Resources” tab above. Please feel free to explore this tab and the tag cloud at right to check out past posts and other great links to resources on the web. Best wishes for a terrific Friday!
