The well-balanced student
Submitted By Martha Kreeger
Dr. Amy Alamar, Ed.D, from the Schools Program Director for Challenge Success at Stanford, will lead an engaging and practical presentation on how we can foster success in today's fast paced and performance based world.
We examine the "traps" that occur in and out of school over issues such as homework, grades, and the culture of competition. Discuss strategies to promote healthier home and school environments. This thought-provoking program is a must for parents seeking a healthy balance between academic achievement and personal fulfillment for their students.
In this presentation, you will learn:
How the increasing demands and high expectations placed on students can often have unintentional but damaging effects
How students today are coping--or not--with the academic pressure they face
Ways you can reduce academic stress without sacrificing achievement or engagement in school
