Hogwarts for Muggles: Hermione Granger’s Successful Study Skills



In the world of Harry Potter, Ms. Granger was an exemplary pupil. In this class, we will put the techniques she used at Hogwarts to work for us, like using a planner, getting and staying organized, learning to study and take notes, and more!



Meets once per week for 6 weeks. 

Many learners don’t have study skills developed just the way they would like. In order to succeed at Hogwarts or in the Muggle world, retention of information is a necessity. During this course, we will introduce or improve upon various skills. Each week, learners will have handouts directed by Ms. Granger to help drive home the topics we’re discussing in class. Weekly, we will also pull from our knowledge of the books and movies to think about times when characters did or did not use the skills we’re discussing. If your learner has not read the books or seen the movies, I have and I’ll pass my knowledge along! Each week, learners will have homework, which will typically be to practice the skill we learned that week.
