What Are the Skills Students Need to Succeed in Middle School?

So much has changed from the days of a single textbook and a classroom teacher.  Today’s modern student is simply not equipped with the necessary skills to organize, process, manage, prioritize and learn from the massive amounts of information they encounter.

That’s why The SOAR® Learning & Soft Skills Curriculum (aka SOAR® Study Skills Curriculum) teaches the most critical learning, organizing, and communication skills needed to be successful in middle school and then later in high school and the workplace. Those skills include:

  • Identify students' strengths & “SuperPowers” (according to Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences)
  • Set goals
  • Establish priorities
  • Manage time
  • Organize papers, desks, lockers, & other space
  • Speak & listen effectively
  • Work with teachers & peers
  • Read and understand textbooks
  • Take notes
  • Study for tests
  • Write research papers
  • Prepare for presentations
  • Track long-term goals


Why is SOAR® is Perfect for Middle School?

For most students, the transition from elementary to middle school brings about a great amount of change. Suddenly, middle school students have different teachers for each subject. This means students now need to handle the organization of papers, assignments, and deadlines on their own. That’s why learning study skills is essential for middle school students.

Furthermore, SOAR® prides itself on being student friendly and efficient.  That’s specifically why we do NOT recommend burdening students with different study skills for different subjects.  SOAR® has masterfully identified the essential, 80/20 skills that bring proven results in every subject.  Plus, when students focus on the most essential skills, they also develop mastery, which leads to years of successful learning outcomes in school and even into the workplace.
