Video: Raising Resilient Boys Seminar

On Thursday, October 15, Presbyterian Day School hosted the third in our series of Parent Education events for 2015-2016.

Resilience is the ability to take control of one’s self during difficult situations, failures, challenges, and setbacks. Resilient children are those who are able to effectively handle any pressure and get things done, despite obstacles.

Mark Fruitt has been helping boys and families with these issues for decades. Join Mark as we host an interactive conversation designed to help families raise resilient boys.

Comic Books in the Classroom

Comic books used to be considered “junk literature” and were even called “funny books.” But comics have had a come-uppance of late, spurred by the phenomenal box-office draws of big-name superheroes: The Avengers, Batman, Spider-Man, and the X-Men.

But comics aren’t all about superheroes. They can have a place in education as well. Librarians across the country are making room for one of the fastest-growing categories of books — graphic novels, a descendant of the comic book. Many teachers are turning to graphic novels to reach reluctant readers. Other teachers are using graphic novels to teach history. There are even some science teachers benefitting from this graphic medium.

Are Girls Smarter than Boys? Disproving the Gender Gap of Learning

Is the so-called gender gap in learning real? Some experts in education argue that such a chasm is non-existent. Others insist that it is a real result of the over-feminization of the educational system. Many maintain that the differences in which boys and girls learn are simply an inalterable fact of life.

Video: Developmental Milestones - Age 4

On Tuesday, September 15, Presbyterian Day School hosted the second in our series of Parent Education events for 2015-2016.

Is my child on track?

Developmental milestones in the early years can often be a source of concern for parents. Head of Early Childhood, Debbie Isom, looks at the benchmarks associated with turning 4 years of age. This session features information from experts, as well as information from the book Yardsticks: Children in the Classroom age 4–14 by Chip Wood.

Video: The Digital Toolbelt at PDS

On Thursday, September 10 The Digital Toolbelt at PDS Parent Education seminar was held at PDS.

PDS carefully deploys many pieces of technology to help our students experience greater success in the classroom. This session is an overview of a few of our most popular pieces of software. Please join us as we explore Haiku (grades 4 - 6), Dreambox (grades 1 - 4), IOS Apps suggestions (all grades) and others. This session is led by Cathy Kyle and members of the technology department. We also discuss setting appropriate boundaries at home and school.
