What Is SOAR?
What Skills Does Your Student Need to Succeed in the Information Age?
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 school, in virtual learning environments, and in 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
In fact, parents spend hundreds, even thousands, of dollars per year on tutoring for study skills. Finally, there is an affordable solution to learn study skills at home, on your schedule, from the #1 world-wide expert in study skills.
How frustrating is it when your child or teen doesn’t know what they have for homework?
Or, they don’t know where it is.
Or, they know where their homework is, but it’s at school.
Or, maybe they know what their homework is; they brought everything home and they did their work. You think it was a success-story. But, a week or two later you learn that the assignment was never turned in!
Your child/teen may also struggle with studying. They may not know how to prepare for a test. They may get very anxious about tests. Or, perhaps they spend hours studying, feeling miserable throughout the whole process.
On top of all of this, they are out of motivation! You feel like you are the only one who cares and you’re fighting an uphill battle. In quicksand.
You’ve asked why this is happening a million different ways. And you just can’t get a solid answer from your child. Teachers say, “He’s just not applying himself or working to his potential.”
It’s Not Your Child; It’s the Tools He’s Using!
Students are overloaded with transitions! They move from home to school, from locker to class, class to locker, locker to another class, lunch, back to locker, another few classes, and home again. Meanwhile, students operating in a virtual learning environment have the added challenge of creating their own structure naturally exists in a traditional, classroom setting.
Each class has a different teacher with a different perspective on how to best organize and learn. But, since teachers are not trained in how to optimize learning and organizing, most of their recommendations are complex and time-intensive.
Brain research now shows us the key to successful organizing and learning strategies is to have simple tools and strategies for organizing and learning.
Simple as in… *fewest* number of steps possible.
When simplicity is applied to strategies, students SOAR!
- A study published by Ohio State University found that students who learned these strategies become 600% more likely to graduate from college than peers who did not learn such strategies.
- A middle school in Utah found the average GPA for their entire student body rose by ONE FULL POINT after teaching these skills!
