Workshop 4- Metacognition: The Key to Acing Courses!

All students who are admitted to college have the ability to ace their courses. However, most students did not acquire effective learning strategies in high school, and resort to memorizing information just before tests. This strategy usually yields poor results, with students earning grades much lower than their ability. This interactive workshop will introduce students to cognitive science based learning strategies that help all students experience meaningful, transferable learning, resulting in A’s in their courses!
