In Malcom Gladwell’s book Outliers (a New York Times Best Seller), he looks for patterns in people and things that don’t “follow the pattern” – high school dropouts that become extremely successful, college graduates who are not successful, why Asians are so good at academics, etc. It’s extremely insightful.
However, one section in particular stood out.
Examining the results of scholastic aptitude tests given to New York grade-school students in June and August, Gladwell finds both how much students learn over the school year and how much students learn over the summer.
The results are surprising.
Group A of students actually did better during the school year than Group B, but Group B sprang ahead of Group A after the summer!
And Group B grew up to be successful individuals.
By keeping their minds in academic, learning mode all-year long, they not only learned more but became BETTER learners. They learned more new things and learned new things faster than others.
Here’s the best part.
Your student can have the SAME RESULTS and the SAME ADVANTAGE. Who would say no to:
