For College and Graduate Students:

Effective Reading Strategies for Academic Success

Some students struggle with the amount of reading assigned or find the process of reading laborious and difficult.  Do you put readings off until the very last minute and try to cram and comprehend material the night before the exam?  This workshop will offers information to students about how to manage assigned readings for classes or for dissertation. The workshop is about the usefulness and distinction of reading comprehension, critical thinking and critical reading. Learning how  to deal with class’ readings could be a solution for procrastination issues and it could improve academic performance.

GRIT and A GROWTH MINDSET

Come and find out how YOU can foster your perseverance in order to achieve your goal this year!  You may have heard the term GRIT used before but did you know the following two things about Grit? (1) It predicts success more reliably than talent or I.Q. and (2) That anyone, and everyone, can learn to be gritty. It has been called the secret to outstanding achievement. Come and find out why what really drives success is not “genius” but a special blend of passion and long-term perseverance.  Most importantly, come and find out how you can develop higher levels of GRIT in order to increase your ability to set goals, pursue them and successfully accomplish them!

This workshop will help UChicago students explore and understand how comparing themselves to others is most likely based in mythology about how well others seem to be doing and, in contrast, how poorly they believe they are doing in comparison. Strategies will be offered to help combat this kind of counterproductive thinking to improve academic success.
