SOAR class is a study skills enrichment class offered to 6th grade students in their first trimester. The SOAR curriculum is a strategic learning skills program for college and career readiness. The program teaches students how to set goals, organize, ask questions, and record their progress. Students will learn ways to establish priorities, manage their time, take notes to help them process their learning, and study for tests. The program focuses on necessary "soft skills" students need to acquire to be successful. These soft skills focus on reading comprehension, critical thinking, active learning, written expression, time management, organization, active listening, attention to detail, learning strategies, and becoming an independent learner. Soft skills are needed to be a lifelong learner, think critically, and make decisions independently. Soft skills are also known as study skills.
