Set goals for the year 为新的学年制定年计划

Middle schoolers are not the greatest planners in general, but if they get in this habit early, they will be building a routine that can last a lifetime. Ask what your child wants to do for a career. Find out whether your middle school student plans to attend to a training school or would prefer traditional college. Help plan your child’s goals around these answers.

Be specific 明确重点

Be specific. When setting goals, do some background work. Research your child’s favorite schools together to find out the criteria for admission. For example, if their school of choice requires a level, but your child is making straight Cs, then a realistic, specific goal would be to make all Bs this year. Getting in the habit of meeting the criteria that is expected beyond the formal education years is an ideal way to make sure you are working toward success.

请明确重点。在设定目标时,做一些准备工作。一起研究您孩子最喜欢的学校,找出入学标准。例如,如果他们选择的学校需要的入学条件,但你的孩子现在的成绩都是 C 的话 ,那么一个现实的,具体的目标是今年学习所有的成绩达到 B 。养成满足正规教育规定的标准之上的习惯是确保你成功的理想方式。

It will also be easier if there is a problem that your teachers need to discuss with you because you will have already developed a sense of rapport.

通过电子邮件,电话或亲自与教师和工作人员定期沟通,让他们知道您参与了孩子的教育。作为一名积极的家长,学校将了解您孩子的教育对您很重要,并且您希望参与该过程。如果您的老师需要与您讨论问题也会更容易,因为您和学校已经形成了一种融洽感。
