“Soft” Skills Our Middle School Students Need

1. How to monotask: know how to do one thing at a time.

2. How they study best: reflect on the effectiveness of their study strategies.

3. How to use metacognition: learn how to check their understanding as they read and figure out the parts they don’t get the first time.

4. How to prioritize: spend a few minutes at the beginning of the activity prioritizing what needs to get done first and how they’re going to accomplish it.

5. How to play to their strengths: It’s okay if not everybody does the exact same things.

6. How to read and write for pleasure: Students who read independently for pleasure go on to have greater success academically, professionally, and personally according to several well-documented studies.
