Seven Strategies to Study Less and Learn More
Andrew Watson, who taught at independent schools for nearly 20 years, will present his seven strategies to “studying less and learning more” at Chase Collegiate on December 4. Watson will provide information on brain changes during adolescence, giving greater insight into why your child is changing both emotionally and cognitively. He will also offer some suggestions on how to manage these changes. “My goal is to translate the recent brain science research so that teachers, students, parents, and schools can put it to practical use every day,” explains Watson. The talk will be most relevant for Middle and Upper School parents.
When: December 4, 2012 from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
Andrew Watson taught for 13 years at Loomis Chaffee, four
years at Concord Academy, and two summers at Phillips Exeter Summer School. He holds an M. Ed. in Mind Brain Education from Harvard University Graduate School of Education, and M.A. in English Language and Literature from Boston University, and an A.B. from Harvard College
in Medieval History and Literature.
