Smart Students Improve Skills at Ed Sage School

Smart, capable students need to have their minds challenged and their skill levels increased through the school assignments they do. Far too often the work they are asked to do is not a challenge and is extremely boring.

Intelligent students need to have their thinking challenged. They need to have reading assignments that are above grade level. Writing assignments should require detail to explain their thoughts. Math work should require application of concepts at a higher grade level. Social Studies should require cause and effect thinking and understanding. Science learning should require the understanding of the “why it works” part of concepts.

Ed Sage School creates individual Student Action Plans for each student. The smart, capable students have the “push” written into them so the students can learn to achieve above grade level.

Ed Sage School Students Stay Organized

Ed Sage School students stay organized every day. On the Friday before a school week begins, students in Ed Sage School get all of their schedules, assignments, test notices, due dates for assignments, and learning/ study work to be done in each subject for the coming week. This helps all students including those who have learning issues.

Students take this information and create their “To Do Lists” in their To Do List Journal. Each page has a different day. The student writes in all the information needed for that day. This includes: assignments, due dates, and what to study and learn. Then as each day is completed, the student checks off the day’s To Do List. Students with ADHD like this method because it keeps them focused.

This process helps the students become very organized and independent. Helping students become independent learners is one of the goals of Ed Sage School.
