PrepEssentials: Emotional Intelligence course
Over the course of this week we are going to walk you through our PrepEssentials™ program,
including interesting articles and activities that you can bring to the dinner table to engage and
discuss with the exceptional students in your home!

Prologue
As parents, we are always looking for ways to ensure we are giving our children the foundational ground work
and competitive edge for long-term happiness and success - we hear buzz words like holistic, engagement,
foundations, differentiated instruction, lifelong and collaborative learning, meta-cognition, emotional-intelligence,
etc . But what does this mean in the real world? What does this mean in our "rapidly changing workforce"?
According to Tom Jenkins, Co-Chair of Canada's Business/Higher Education Roundtable, this means "....the
ability to unravel big problems, to work in diverse teams, and to communicate complex issues....." ( Click here for
the full article ) . These 'soft skills' that determine one's workability and are essential to success are most often
NOT taught in the regular classroom.
Here at PREPSKILLS, we have long been calling attention to these "soft skills" as an incredibly important part of
every child, or individual's, personal development. Intent on supporting this core development, Founder &
President Joanna Severino created PrepEssentials™ .
Our PrepEssentials™ program nurtures the communication skills, confidence and emotional maturity of the
student - drawing out their unique abilities and helping them to define a strong, well-balanced, and versatile
personal character. We have seen incredible results with this program and its undeniable success in nurturing
the holistic student, ensuring success in all aspects of their education and personal development. We nurture
these students into the future change-makers for whom admissions and recruitment departments as well as the
contemporary workforce are searching!

PART ONE: PREPTHINK ™
http://prepskills.com/PrepEssentials/prepthink

"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."
- Henry David Thoreau
PREPTHINK™ will open your child's mind by exposing them to various modes of
thinking. In the high-speed, technologically changing, and media-centric world we live in,
information from a variety of sources travels at the speed of light. We provide students
with the skills needed to deconstruct, evaluate, and reconstruct information as it applies
to a wide range of social and academic experiences. Preparing your child with the skills
needed to maneuver successfully through that ever-expanding network of information
will help pave the path toward a successful future.

"I thought that PREPESSENTIALS™ was a great course, and it gave you a chance to try out
new ways of doing things that you never might have thought of before. It was very interactive
for the most part, but the less interactive aspects of the course were informative and satisfying
in their own way, and the hands-on experiences, scenarios, and situations really gave me a
new perspective on different kinds of leadership and how to use them effectively.
PREPESSENTIALS™ was a great course!"

PART TWO: PREPWRITE ™
http://prepskills.com/prepessentials/prepwrite

"The act of writing is the act of discovering what you believe."
- David Hare
Writing well is an elusive art for many people. However, at PREPSKILLS , we believe
that writing essays, compositions, and other forms of prose should be an enjoyable act
of self-expression. To write well, it is required that a person must possess certain skills
of composition, and through PREPWRITE™, we equip your child with those skills
through a series of writing activities, analyses, and critical reflection. Writing should be
a liberating conduit through which your child learns to state ideas, analyze claims, and
construct coherent viewpoints. Opening that conduit is the basis of the PREPWRITE™
program.
SOFT-SKILLS







Brainstorming and planning
"Stream of consciousness" writing
Creative and persuasive writing
Critical reflection and analysis
Academic vs. informal writing
Self editing skills - grammar, spelling and punctuation

"I just wanted to write a quick note to say thank you again for giving me the opportunity to participate in the
PREPSKILLS course, PREPESSENTIALS™. It has really helped to boost my self-confidence in essay writing
and has diminished the stress that essays have always caused me! Our teacher was excellent and I really
enjoyed our class discussions. Although it was a solid two weeks of work in the summer, I nonetheless did enjoy
myself and do feel that it has benefited me for the future."

PART THREE: PREPSPEAK ™
http://prepskills.com/prepessentials/prepspeak

"Do not say a little in many words but a great deal in a few."
- Pythagoras
It is a common belief that charismatic speakers possess a natural talent for speechmaking. At PREPSKILLS ®, we know speaking well is a skill that can be taught and
learned. Required by both the academic and entrepreneurial worlds, the ability to speak
publicly is crucial to your child's academic and social success. The use of confident body
language, vocal emphasis, and logical debating techniques forms the basis of the
PREPSPEAK™ program, in which your child will learn to speak up, speak out, and speak
well.

Hear From Our Teachers!

PrepEssentials™ Featured Student: Calum Bainbridge, Toronto
"I went looking for a tutoring program to help our son improve upon his essay writing skills in preparation for high school
admissions tests and what I found in the Prepskills PrepEssentials course was so much more! The various modules have
been a valuable supplement to our son's public school education and I feel they have given him more than just the skills
but the confidence to excel as a student. The best part is, he truly enjoys going! The instructor was actually able to make
3hrs of "extra school work" afternoons for 20 weeks fun and engaging. PrepEssentials fine tuned a good student and made
him an even better one!"

more, you are a leader."
