Life skills are lessons taught “to cope with stresses and challenges of daily life, especially skills in communication and literacy, decision-making, occupational requirements, problem-solving, time management and planning” as defined by www.dictionary.com.
The direction of our new course will concentrate on helping students understand how they learn, mastery of good study habits and test taking skills, as well as reviewing problem solving strategies to help them in and out of the classroom. These skills will be positive and adaptive to any situation.
Additionally, the students will learn about their personal goals and attributes, and have opportunities to explore those in detail. We hope that you will see the positive outcome of this Life Skills Course throughout the year. We want to help our students deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life so they can be successful at school and in their daily lives.
