There is a time students are all grieving for. Students have always been very active in school and other extracurricular activities they do for mainly the things they need to improve on. After all that there is a time of hope and glory and that is summer.
Summer is either used travel and for a long break from school but at other times it is used to catch up on the things we desperately need to progress in. There are many benefits and consequences for summer programs.
A benefit that is well known is that‘s students get to experience different programs that are known for many different things. Diverse programs can open students towards different careers interests, providing them with workshops and even leadership skills that can be very convenient for the future.
As a freshman, it it very important to get introduced to many different opportunities so you can focus on one for a period of time in high school. Not only that, when students are introduced to these different environments, they get to meet new people with different backgrounds developing the social skills many look for in a person. By the end of summer, there are many different summer programs that students can attend depending on their way of learning.
As such students will find usually one of either visual, auditory, and kinesthetic as the easiest way to learn something. This can really help students learn quickly and easily during the summer because schools only provide students with already set options.
Another benefit that students naturally get is holding a responsibility in their learning process. It allows students to become more individualized and independent which is a fundamental aspect for success. Getting used to this quicker is very essential...
