SUGGESTED WORKSHOP TOPICS:
How to Thrive in Middle School
FOR 6th GRADERS! A fun, interactive, and informative discussion of the expectations, challenges and responsibilities associated with the significant transition from elementary to middle school. Students will learn tips on organization, time management and strengthening their relationships with peers, teachers and parents.
This workshop is tailored to middle school and high school students who are interested in learning about effective study skills, organization and time management techniques to help them get their school year off to a positive start.
Study Strategies that Work
Do you sometimes study for hours and think you know the material only to get a much lower grade than expected?
Do read and reread material and feel like it’s just not sinking in?
Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed and have no idea where to begin to start to study for a test?
Do you put off studying too long and end up cramming the night before?
Do you feel like you lack motivation to keep up with your studies?
Do you ever feel like your brain locks up and you forget everything as soon as you sit down to take a test?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are not alone! Many students share these frustrations and concerns. Unfortunately, most students never identify the fundamental issues causing these difficulties; instead attributing blame to laziness, lack of intelligence, bad teachers or too much stress. In this workshop you will discover HOW to study by learning HOW you think. Not just “study skills”, but how the teen brain encodes, processes and retrieves information. This information is a game-changer!
Critical Thinking and Evaluating Media
Learn about how our social and cognitive biases influence how we seek out, understand and evaluate information. Helpful tips for safely navigating social media, news and the internet for credible information, services and products.
Feeling overwhelmed? Always busy, but never seem to make much progress? Learn how to be productive by focusing on your core values and goals. Once you learn how to prioritize your goals you can take specific steps to accomplish them. The focus of this workshop centers around the management of your most precious resources: your time, energy and attention.
This workshop starts with the premise that we first need to develop a relationship with and understanding of time. The next step is to develop a customized time management system that works. Workshop covers how to get started, developing a system and strategies to enhance your thinking about time.

“After a few sessions my son's procrastination dropped and he began to get back on track quickly. ”
Brad, parent of high school junior
“I wish there was something like this when I was in high school because I was not motivated at all. I didn't know how to study properly or take notes. You showed me how to be more focused and to work hard for what I wanted. Now I've reached my goal of going to UGA and I am so excited!”
Dee, Former student
“Not only was the middle school workshop fun, I learned how to use my agenda to stay organized. I'm still using it now in eighth grade. Being organized helps take a lot of the pressure off. ”
Alex, current 8th grade student
“When my son came home from the How to Thrive in Middle School workshop with Dr. Jannot, we had to immediately run out and buy him a day planner. He was so excited to 'get himself organized' for 6th grade. So we did, that day. I thought this would be something that he would lose interest in after the first week, but he is now in 8th grade and his agenda/day planner is still a huge part of his organizational routine. He is an organized person by nature, but having Dr. Jannot reinforce the importance of mastering this skill in Middle School and giving him the roadmap on how to do so was truly invaluable.”
Kellie, parent of middle schooler
