Arlington, MA (PRWEB) January 9, 2009
When it comes to educational aids, middle school students often fall between the cracks…until now. Clarity Learning Solutions, a Boston-area company, introduces SuperGrades! - Power Secrets of Learning. Developed specifically for 10- to 14 - year olds who are transitioning from the single-teacher/single-classroom setting of elementary school, to the more challenging middle school environment with multiple teachers and courses, SuperGrades! teaches learning skills often overlooked in school curriculums.
While most children look forward to middle and high school with excitement, that eager anticipation is often mixed with trepidation as they face more difficult subject matter, increased workload, and more personal responsibility for their school careers. Many students find the transition difficult and begin to struggle with school for the first time.
SuperGrades! teaches the basics - filling a vital gap in the educational process, SuperGrades! does not teach students what to learn; it teaches them how to learn, motivating them to look at school in a different way.
A unique interactive, computer-based program that teaches "best practice" learning and study skills to middle school students ages 10-14, SuperGrades! helps to improve their grades in school by developing a set of basic learning and study skills that are fundamental to better school performance. The program divides these skills into six learning modules that are presented in small doses of information presented in kid-friendly format. The modules focus on organization, listening, taking notes, doing homework, taking tests and using available resources. Each module includes clear examples, practice exercises and special Power Secrets - powerful tips that drastically enhance learning. Students are also given assignments that help them to absorb their new skills.
"Our Power Secrets of Learning are based on the 80/20 rule - it teaches the 20% of skills that will make 80% of the difference in performance," says SuperGrades! developer, Danny Brundage, President of Clarity Learning Solutions. "We focus in on a small, manageable amount of material that can be mastered in four to six weeks. By avoiding information overload, students don't get frustrated or bored with the program because they see results quickly."
According to Brundage, this small product packs big results. An affordable tool that can level the playing field in school for students who cannot afford private tutoring programs, SuperGrades! can boost a child's average by a full grade or more.
SuperGrades! can help every student reach their full potential by providing them with motivation to take responsibility for managing their school careers, information on how to learn using their own natural styles, skills that will enable them to achieve greater success in school, and a lasting change in attitude and performance so they become lifetime learners.
SuperGrades! includes software on CD-ROM, a Student Workbook and a Parents' Guide. The program runs on PC and Macintosh computers.
