Current Series – On The Right Track

It’s hard enough to get middle schoolers to think about what they’re going to do in 15 minutes, let alone 15 years, but that’s what we’re going to attempt to do in this series. Their level of cognitive development makes it hard for them to see the connection between what they’re doing now and how it will affect them down the road. The truth is, if you have an eighth grader who doesn’t do homework, you’re likely going to have a high school senior who doesn’t do homework or graduate. Is there something we can do about it? Well, yes. We’re going to encourage students to shift their focus from being “in the moment” to being “on the right track.”
