About the Website
NOTE: This site is still being worked on. Please be patient.
WHO IS THIS SITE FOR?
High School Students, Middle School Students, and College Students who prefer to start with the shorter and easier website before working on the College Website. Teachers, Parents and Anyone else interested in Study Skills and Strategies is certainly welcomed.
If you want to see the College Website – useful to get further details on a topic, go to www.breakthroughlearningcollege.com
THE PURPOSE OF THE SITE: to help students
and Make Better Grades
ADDITIONAL SECTIONS OF THE WEBSITE:
Learning Disabilities: This section is for and about students with Learning Differences or Learning Disabilities. Many students with learning disabilities can be extremely intelligent. They can find many of these strategies to be helpful. Judy shares the story of her son, Tony, who is severely dyslexic. Though they were once told Tony might never learn to read or write, he was determined to go to college. Other students (or parents and teachers) are invited to share their stories.
Think College: Planning for college isn’t really part of study skills, but is certainly important to Most High School students. I urge Middle School Students to read this to. I began preparing for college in Middle School and it really helped.
SOURCES OF INFORMATION: Both this and the college website are based on a great amount of research including recent research on the brain and how our behavior affects the brain which then affects our ability to learn.
ABOUT THE PICTURES: The photographs and a few diagrams used on the website are from www.Dreamstime.com , and are copyrighted by the photographers. It is illegal to copy these for use elsewhere.
THE STORIES: The stories often used with the pictures are obviously not really about the person in the picture. Most of the stories are, however, about people Judy has known or read about – but with a few of the details changed.
