Intelligence & Study Skills

Everyone is intelligent! There are at least eight different domains of intelligence, but school work typically assesses only two types of intelligence, Math and Word Smarts.

Math Smart - ACT
Word Smart - SAT

In order to be motivated in school and in life, you must recognize your intelligence and believe in your abilities. Focus on your strengths rather than your weaknesses.

When you feel good about yourself, you will soon discover that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. 

Alternative to College

In recent years, the concept of a "Gap Year" has been receiving more attention. A gap year typically follows high school graduation; it gives students an opportunity to get a break from school and explore the real world. It is a structured year, with a specific plan. The goal is for students to get some experience to help them make more informed decisions about their future career, work environment, and of course, field of study for when they return to school.
 
As quoted by Susan Kruger, author of SOAR... 

Testing Anxiety

Optimists choose to expect good outcomes and with this approach they can relax about things such as test scores.  A focus on the process of learning rather than the outcome can provide more enjoyable learning and reduce stressful situations.   Ellen Langer names this Mindful Learning.
