How To Improve Your Child's Learning
Jump Start Ways 002"Keep a bag of tricks to introduce to the child at opportune moments." This tip is one of the ways to help your child learn better in Patricia Derrick's new 24-page pamphlet, 111 Ways to Help Jump-Start Your Child's Learning.

Drawing on her background as a Montessori educator, award-winning child's author, and brain research investigator, Mrs. Derrick has
come up with these proven methods which will stimulate young children and develop their brain neurons. By doing so, learning becomes easier for the child.

Among the other ways to develop learning:

#3. Introduce a foreign language.

#6. Allow language to occur naturally without intervention by adults.

#15. Stimulate the brain through tactile experiences or simply through touch.

#17. Be a facilitator of learning rather than a teacher.

#27. Supplement school activities with rich learning activities.

#36. Provide opportunities for trips to the zoo, museums, bus caravans around town and even picnic lunches in a pumpkin patch to look at bugs and ants. (The YSC summer field trips are an excellent way of doing this).

The YSC has a limited number of these pamphlets available. Stop by and pick up a copy at the YSC while supplies last! $2 donation suggested.

Pictured on the cover is a child running his finger through a Brainpath maze developed by Mrs. Derrck. This sensory activity leads directly to the brain and helps develop these pathways. (See #15 above). The Brainpath maze will be available in stores soon and from the Youth Science Center.

Elementary School Girls Like Science and Math!

Girls Science
Girls like writing and reading; boys like math and science. At least that's the stereotype. But a new survey shows that girls in elementary school actually like math and science better than language arts.
Researchers at the University of Miami in Ohio surveyed nearly 2,000 girls in grades 4 through 8 at public and parochial schools and had them rate their enjoyment of four subjects, science, math, language arts and social studies, on a scale of 1 (strongly dislike) to 5 (really like).
Fourth-grade girls clearly liked science the best; their average enjoyment levels were:
  • 4.11 for science
  • 3.85 for math
  • 3.5 for language arts
  • 3.49 for social studies

What Your Kids Need to Know to Get in to College
Priscilla Chui
COLLEGE BOUND

by Priscilla Chui
(Priscilla is a junior in Civil Engineering at UCLA. She attended Wilson High School and volunteers for the YSC)

Most high school juniors and seniors are eager to set their feet onto the grounds of college-the place of freedom, new beginnings, and sense of independence, but how do these candidates stand out to the prestigious universities in the state, nation, or world?

First and foremost, the process doesn't just start in your junior or senior year; it begins fall semester of your freshman year. Remember that the GPA required on college applications is an average, so the beginning of any high school career counts! Be aware of the teachers instructing the classes. Will your classes be challenging because the teacher is demanding? Will the teacher be helpful and provide support if you are struggling, so that you can maintain your GPA, be prepared for the SAT, and have the background needed for university coursework? Keep these factors in mind as they will assist you throughout your academic career.

Second, two simple words: time management. If you research your teachers, you will have a better understanding of which classes will demand the most time. Keep a calendar with daily assignments and project due dates so that you can plan your activities accordingly. This simple habit will also help you tremendously in college, since you are responsible for yourself and will have no one to remind you.

Third, get involved in extra curricular activities. Showing that you are dedicated and have participated in athletics and/or academic activities will give you the advantage. It illustrates your capabilities as a team member, and college administrators favor well-rounded students. Actively participate in an organization as early as possible. It will showcase your ability to balance academics with other activities. You should campaign for leadership positions as well, since universities seek students with leadership skills. Also, consider volunteering in a field related to your intended profession. For example, if you desire to become a doctor, make sure to volunteer at a local hospital or health center; if you want to become an engineer, volunteer at a math/science program such as Youth Science Center.

Of course, there is another important factor: SAT scores. Unfortunately, there are no tricks or easy ways to get a score of 2400, or even 2000, on the new SATs. The best way to prepare is to study over a long period of time (cramming will not be as effective) and practice writing for the essay portion. Learn as much vocabulary as you can, as the Verbal section is the trickiest part on the exam. It has been shown that studying with a few friends is efficient, so form SAT groups and meet once or twice a week; it makes studying less boring and not as painful. (See the following article on SAT study groups.)

As far as the International Baccalaureate Program, if you feel capable of achieving the rigorous standards required of this program, and plan to apply to ivy league universities such as Yale or Princeton, take on this challenge; however, if you will only do average in the IB Program, drop out before it hurts your GPA, since college advisors emphasize the importance of a high GPA for admissions. As an alternative to the IB Program, I highly recommend students enrolling in Advanced Placement courses. The real question lies in which AP class to take. Definitely take AP English and AP Calculus. Scoring a 4 and above on those two tests will save you a lot of time in college. It gives you the advantage as both a college applicant and an undergraduate, since it satisfies university requirements. For the other AP classes-AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Statistics, AP Foreign Language-feel free to take on these courses as well, since it does give an extra point on your GPA. Do not feel obligated to take AP Examinations in these areas though; that way, you can save yourself $80.

One final aspect of the application process is your personal statement. Many students do not understand that the personal statement is the final factor in determining which candidate, from the pool of potential candidates, will make the "final cut". Be aware of how your statement draws the attention of the readers. Write about something different; a unique experience that molded your views on life, or an obstacle you overcame. When I applied for college, my older sister gave me great advice about my personal statement, "Do not try to get sympathy from the reader. It does not work. Sell yourself. Tell them why they should accept you and how you can benefit the college, instead of focusing on your taking advantage of the college's offerings".

These are the major steps in becoming a successful college candidate. Keeping these pointers in mind, should help you sail through the admission process. I wish you the best of luck.

A Do-It Yourself SAT Class -- No Whining Allowed
March 26, 2008. Miami Springs, Florida. At 5:57 p.m., three minutes ahead of schedule, William Scott bent his lanky frame into the single chair at the front of Room 109. He clasped a set of grammar exercises, and he wore a sweatshirt with the M.I.T. logo. It was "Nerd Day" at Miami Springs High School, but he had chosen the attire with ambition in mind rather than irony.

William began to pass out the grammar exercises to the six classmates before him. The hallway outside the door stretched nearly silent and deserted, just the thin hiss of a janitor sweeping tile. In a school of 2,365 students, William and his comrades might have been the only ones left in the place; surely they were the only ones volunteering for 90 more minutes of class.

High School Graduates Projected to Decline in Numbers
If your student is graduating from high school in 2015, take heart -- it will be easier to get into a college (although not Yale or Harvard) because the number of students will reach a low point after peaking out in 2009.

High school seniors nationwide are anxiously awaiting the verdicts from the colleges of their choice later this month. But though it may not be of much solace to them, in just a few years the admissions frenzy is likely to ease. It's simply a matter of demographics.
Projections show that by next year or the year after, the annual number of high school graduates in the United States will peak at about 2.9 million after a 15-year climb. The number is then expected to decline until about 2015. Most universities expect this to translate into fewer applications and less selectivity, with most students probably finding it easier to get into college.

The SAT? It tests our credulity
Sandy Banks, Los Angeles Times
 
I went to bed early Sunday night and got a good, sound sleep.

Monday morning, I ate a bowl of "Smart Start" cereal and downed a mug of strong coffee. I turned off the phone, put the dog outside and sat down at my kitchen table with two sharpened pencils. I set the timer on my oven for one hour.

Then I cracked open a sample SAT subject exam.

It's the sort of test that almost 300,000 high school students take every spring to shore up their applications to elite universities, which require these additional achievement tests. Now it seems to be headed for the chopping block at the University of California because of concerns that the test is of little use in admissions decisions in this era of standardized-testing frenzy.

Ivy League Colleges Have Record Number of Applicants
Ivy League
The already crazed competition for admission to the nation's most prestigious universities and colleges became even more intense this year, with many logging record low acceptance rates.

Harvard College, for example, offered admission to only 7.1 percent of the 27,462 high school seniors who applied - or, put another way, it rejected 93 of every 100 applicants, many with extraordinary achievements, like a perfect score on one of the SAT exams. Yale College accepted 8.3 percent of its 22,813 applicants. Both rates were records.

Yubin
James Kim

Diamond Bar High 10th grade student James Kim, shown above, has memorized 1,750 SAT words in 2 months using the computerized Vocabulitis program and has retained an average of 95% of the words.
"I feel confident with critical reading because the words help to understand what I am reading. Also, I can understand better in all different textbooks I read because I find these words in many subjects and not just in English. This Vocabulitis program helps me to know not only the meaning of the words but when to use them properly."
