4, 5, 6, 7  

Title – New School Year Success
By – John Bishop
Primary Subject – Other
Grade Level – 4-7 


Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire .”
— William Butler Yeats

Knowledge is power and enthusiasm pulls the switch .”
— Steve Drake

      These two quotes underscore the importance of a quality education. As parents we want our children to succeed. We want them to understand that education is their springboard to their future success.
      The key is educational ownership.
      When they take ownership students take more personal responsibility to do something meaningful and positive to change their educational experience. Students learn how to overcome challenges, the importance of being positive, and how to measure their progress and how increase their chances for success in the classroom. And, when that happens you will see a positive impact on their attendance, class participation, personal decision making, and academic achievement.
    How can we help our children learn more about educational ownership? Mr. John Bishop, the Executive Director of Accent On Success®, has identified ten areas to discuss with your child before the new school year begins. Here are a couple of helpful reminders when talking to your child about this important subject. Don’t lecture — facilitate the discussion! Your responsibility is to listen and direct the conversation in a positive direction.

10 Educational Ownership Topics to Discuss With Your Child:

      1. How can you help your teacher succeed?
      2. How can these five words (yes, I can and I will) help you in school and in life?
      3. Discuss how goals setting can help you succeed in the classroom.
      4. How do you define success and what elements are needed to achieve it?
      5. How can you stay focused and positive?
      6. How can these six words (no, can’t, won’t, never, if and maybe) hold you back from reaching your full potential?
      7. Why is helping others so important to your success?
      8. How do you measure your progress toward reaching your goals?
      9. Identify five potential roadblocks to your success in school activities.
      10. Why is life long learning so important?
