So, New Year is upon us and this means lots of talk of goal setting, planning and leaping ahead full steam into 2017.
(And I LOVE planning)
BUT… before we dive in to NEXT year it’s also important to reflect on the year just gone. To smile about and celebrate the successes, and acknowledge the parts that may not have quite gone to plan or weren’t so great.
So that we learn from our experiences.
And can consider how to use those lessons to overcome similar hurdles next year.
Why was it that those disappointments happened, why those goals weren’t achieved? What was the success factor in the goals that WERE achieved?
I’m not here to be controversial but I AM here to give students the best chance of getting THEIR best possible grades.
So first of all, let me explain what QWC actually stands for.
And secondly, I’ll reveal the very unofficial reason why it’s so important.
(E.g. copying out chunks of text from a text book, copying out notes for revision.)
It’s a ‘passive’ activity that requires little cognitive brain action.
However, there is ONE way it can be used effectively.
And this is definitely something your teen could do over summer to give themselves a head-start for next year!
