Life Skills for Teens: Note Taking and Getting an A+

We all want to help our children become strong and confident students. One important step in succeeding in high school is to have strong note taking and test taking skills. Homeschool Connections, along with Professor Erin Brown Conroy, has developed a course for your teen. We want to give him or her what is needed to be able to study for any high school level course with success and get straight A's.

When we originally opened this course for registration it filled up right away and went to wait list. For this reason, we've added a second day so that everyone has a chance to learn these important skills.
