So I just had him recap for me his thoughts on both workshops. He said they were both good and helpful and he is sure he will utilize a lot of the strategies taught in each class.  I asked which class was better or which was more helpful and he said both were great. He then went on to say (unprompted) how great the teachers were. They were young and relatable and kept the classes moving. He said the study skills teacher used examples from Marvel Avengers and the reading/ writing teacher used major league baseball teams in examples of essay writing strategies which he thought made everything more enjoyable than the way his school teacher teach.

I can tell that he feels much more prepared and confident heading to high school with these tools in his tool chest.
