Learning to Learn
A real-life example from WCA Principal Jeff Gillingham
Western Christian Academy’s new ebook, Learning to Learn, is a unique look at the actual skills and concepts needed to learn – not a specific topic or subject, but the act of learning in general.
Learning is a personal responsibility for each student, but this eBook is also for teachers and parents. A group effort is required to ensure the students in your life have every chance to succeed.
The principal of WCA, Jeff Gillingham, has a real-life example of this in action that he’d love to share with you.
His daughter, Morgan, is a student at WCA and she recently had a personal experience with the idea of learning to learn.
In English class, Morgan was struggling to nail the finer points of a topic. Most of the time she’s able to just read, digest, and apply the material, like a lot of students.
But this topic was a roadblock. A roadblock that took a week to overcome.
Morgan had to intentionally apply specific strategies to make learning the material a personal, individual endeavor – as a result of personally connecting herself to material, Morgan was able to understand the topic – instead of simply remembering it.
After Morgan overcame the roadblock, she had a new, empowering confidence not just in the material, but herself as a student.
She knew no matter what subject gave her a problem, she could take some or all of the concepts in the Learning to Learn eBook and overcome that topic and go on to the next.
