School Success: A Simple, Powerful Cognitive Approach
Written by Ms. Sue Fulton
As a middle school and high school teacher I worked hard to teach my students how to be skilled readers and writers and – more importantly – how to be successful learners. But after 20 years as a high-performing, award winning teacher, I struggled everyday to discover precisely what each student needed. Typically, I saw 125 or more students per day, for less than an hour, in groups of 25. I yearned for something that would help every student reach their full potential.
Now, as a Vogel Prep tutor, I’ve finally found that “something”: Vogel Prep’s unique Learning and Study Skills system. Designed to teach students how to be active learners rather than passive receivers of information, the program is simple, yet powerful:
Step 1: The process begins with Mindprint, a valid and reliable cognitive test developed at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. It takes about an hour for a student to complete the on-line assessment which evaluates Speed, Executive Function, Complex Reasoning, and Memory, along with ten specific learning skills. Then, Mindprint’s experts create an individualized Student Profile that provides essential information about a student’s learning strengths and weaknesses.
Step 2: Following the assessment, Vogel’s experts will review your student’s Profile Report and recommendations with you. You will receive a copy of the full report which can also be shared with your student’s teachers.
Step 3: Explore the Mindprint follow-up options available at Vogel Prep, then enroll your student in a program that best meets your student’s needs. Options include:
· Cognitive Learning and Study Skills for Middle School Success
· Cognitive Learning and Study Skills for High School Success
· Cognitive Learning with Mindprint Tool Kit
· Cognitive Reading with Q-Read
· Cognitive Test Edge (test focus and stress management for classroom and standardized tests)
