PARENTS INFORMATION NETWORK MEETING NOTES
Neela Suresh is our BTE  P.I.N. representative.  She attends meetings every other month and would like to share the great information with all of you! Last months topic was:
This is only a test : Reducing anxiety , Learning Strategies , Improving Results- presented by Joshua Ruderman.
  • Solid scores starts with solid notetaking , which includes 90% of listening very actively , before taking notes, absorbing , decode , memorize , make connections between topics and then review the teacher says after class.
Preparing for the test :-
  • Before the test ask the teacher for the portions included.
  • Write down the main ideas and other things relevant to the topics.
  • Clear the doubts before the exam.
  • Make it short and easy , this advice is for both parents and teachers thus enhancing their willingness to engage and participate in conversation and studies.
During the test :-
  • Exercise such as jogging or walking in fresh air helps to  keep the mind clear.
  • Eat well and healthy before the test.
Improving the test score :-
  • When talking to the teacher ask him why the points are deducted.
  • Ask him to explain it to you if still not clear.
  • Ask the teacher what is missed in the answer .
  • Be polite and courteous to teachers during conversation.
Successful Parenting strategies :-
  • Encourage your child in the way which works for them.
  • Ask questions-- what do you think is right ? Ask them-have you tried this way instead of that ?
  • Encourage them to do group studies with 2 or 3 friends.
  • HELP is the last thing the adolescent brain wants.The more we can offer as suggestion the more the positive response is .
