The skills needed to succeed in college are very different írora those required in high school.
In addition to study skills that may be new to students, there will also be everyday living skills that students may not have had to use before.
– know how to handle everyday living skills such as doing laundry, paying bills, balancing a checkbook, cooking, getting the oil changed in the car, etc.
– be familiar and compliant with medical needs concerning medication and health problems. If ongoing medical and/or psychological treatment is needed, arrangements should be made in advance to continue that care while the student is away at college.

– know how to interact appropriately with instmctors, colỉege staff, roommates, and peers. Appropriate social interaction and communication are essential at the college level of education.
– be comfortable asking for heỉp when needed. The transition from high school to college can be overwhelming sociaỉly and academically. Students should know when they need help and should be able to reach out and ask for that help.

ARE TRADITIONAL WAYS OF LEARNiNG THE BEST?
Read about some altemative schools of thought…
One school in Hampshire, UK, offers 24-hour teaching. The children can decide when or if they come to school. The,school is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., for 364 days a year and provides Online teaching throughout the night. The idea is that pupils don’t have to come to school and they can decide when they want to study. Cheryl Heron, the head teacher, said “Some students learn better at night. Some students leam better in the moming.” Cheryl believes that if children are bored, they will not come to school. “Why must teaching only be conducted in a classroom? You can teach a child without him ever coming to school.”
Steiner schools encourage creativity and free thinking so children can study.art, music and gardening as well as Science and history. They don” have to leam to read and write at an early age. At some Steiner schools the teachers can”t use textbooks. They talk to the children, who learn by listening. Every moming the children have to go to Special music and movement classes called “eurhythmy”, which help them learn to concentrate. Very young children learn foreign languages through music and song. Another difference from traditional schools is that at Steiner schools you don’t have to do any tests or exams.
A child learning music with the Suzuki method has to start as young as possible. Even two-year-old children can learn to play difficult pieces of classical music, often on the violin. They do this by watching and listening. Thev learn by copying, just like they learn their mother tongue. The child has to join in, but doesn’t have to get it right. “They soon learn that they mustn’t stop every time they make a mistake. They just carry on,” said one Suzuki trainer. The children have to practise for hours every day and they give períbrmances once a week, so they learn quickly. “The parents must be involved too,” said the trainer, “or it just doesn’t work.”
