All About The “1 to 2” – A School Wide Program Focused on Studying

One of the number one skills I see high school students struggle with is the great mystery of studying. A constant comment I get is “…but I am done with my homework!”. In high school – some students can get by with minimal studying efforts – I was one of these students myself.
