Succeeding as a Distance Learner

Succeeding as a Distance Learner


When classes went online in March 2020, many students floundered. Untethered from the daily structure of bells and teacher reminders, some forgot deadlines – others never even started schoolwork. Crimson Coaching Founder and Head Coach Dr. P. (Dominique Padurano, M.S., Ed., Ph.D.) teaches students how to make a daily schedule, bolster motivation, and use technology to help rather than hinder their academic growth during the age of distance learning.

This Zoom webinar is geared for students grades 6-12, though college students may also find it useful. Parents are encouraged to attend alongside their children so that they can reinforce the concepts and strategies Dr. P. shares.

How COVID-19 Has Changed College Admissions

How COVID-19 Has Changed College Admissions 

 

We are offering this Zoom presentation to help families understand how COVID-19 has changed the college admissions landscape and how it will affect Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors.

 

The college admissions process is undergoing significant and lasting changes as many colleges and universities have gone test optional for this current admissions cycle and will evaluate their standardized testing policies going forward. With the opportunity for visiting colleges curtailed, we’ll discuss how students can engage with colleges virtually to help them develop a preliminary list of colleges to consider visiting when campuses are fully open.

 

We will discuss the holistic review process and focus on the greater consideration admissions officers will give to extracurricular activities as they will have fewer data points to rely on due to the disruptions from COVID-19.

 

This program covers how admissions officers are handling the current situation and how students can position themselves to develop a compelling narrative to increase their chances for admission. We will also discuss the importance of community service and how it can help a student to stand out from other applicants.

 

The presentation will be led by Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC.

 

Please RSVP to ron@standoutforcollege.com. You will receive a private invitation with a Zoom link in reply. There is no charge for this event.

DR. ZIONY ZEVIT:

THE BIBLICAL PAST AIN’T WHAT IT USED TO BE

Archaeology takes us into a world we can barely conjure up, throwing the past into an entirely new light.

Dr. Zevit will lead us into the realities of our ancestors, the ancient Israelites, based not on the Bible but on the work of archaeologists.

Using an examination of Kuntillet Ajrud, a small, isolated archaeological site in the Sinai, he will provide a window into Israelite history and the religious beliefs of those who built and decorated the site.

Dr. Ziony Zevit is Distinguished Professor of Biblical Literature and Northwest Semitic Languages at the American Jewish University in Los Angeles.

-1/2 dried oregano

-1/4 tsp. salt

-24 whole green olives with pimientos (this is for our decorative "monster" eyeballs, so it's ok if you don't like olives & that they don't really go with pizza, I highly recommend using them so that we can all have spooky monster sliders!)

DR. ZIONY ZEVIT:

THE BIBLICAL PAST AIN’T WHAT IT USED TO BE

Archaeology takes us into a world we can barely conjure up, throwing the past into an entirely new light.

Dr. Zevit will lead us into the realities of our ancestors, the ancient Israelites, based not on the Bible but on the work of archaeologists.

Using an examination of Kuntillet Ajrud, a small, isolated archaeological site in the Sinai, he will provide a window into Israelite history and the religious beliefs of those who built and decorated the site.

Dr. Ziony Zevit is Distinguished Professor of Biblical Literature and Northwest Semitic Languages at the American Jewish University in Los Angeles.

DR. ROBERT R. CARGILL:

GOOD FAITH ARCHAEOLOGY – BIBLICAL CLAIMS

CONFIRMED AND CHALLENGED BY ARCHAEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE

Many people today use archaeological evidence to prove — or disprove — myriad claims made in the Bible. But how can we tell which evidence and which claims are trustworthy?

Dr. Cargill, editor of Biblical Archaeology Review, will discuss how to discern legitimate evidence from suspect claims and survey evidence that both corroborates and challenges many of the Bible’s teachings.

Dr. Robert R. Cargill is Associate Professor of Classics and Religious Studies at the University of Iowa. He is a specialist in the literature and archaeology of Second Temple Judaism.

DR. ROBERT R. CARGILL:

GOOD FAITH ARCHAEOLOGY – BIBLICAL CLAIMS

CONFIRMED AND CHALLENGED BY ARCHAEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE

Many people today use archaeological evidence to prove — or disprove — myriad claims made in the Bible. But how can we tell which evidence and which claims are trustworthy?

Dr. Cargill, editor of Biblical Archaeology Review, will discuss how to discern legitimate evidence from suspect claims and survey evidence that both corroborates and challenges many of the Bible’s teachings.

Dr. Robert R. Cargill is Associate Professor of Classics and Religious Studies at the University of Iowa. He is a specialist in the literature and archaeology of Second Temple Judaism.

Guess who's back?! Dawny Dew is back for LIVE, in-person Wiggle Giggle Time on the green! Sing, dance, and be silly with Dawn and all of her puppet friends. This program is great for babies through pre-school!

 

Three sessions are offered: 9:30, 10:15, or 11am. Please only choose ONE session to attend. Registration is not required, but please be mindful of social distancing guidelines when arriving at the Village Green. We do not advise that families and children mingle with each other before, during, or after the program.

 

In order to ensure proper social distancing guidelines are met, we will be setting up rope circles on the lawn. Please stay in your family's rope circle at all times and do not move the circles. We also ask that you wear masks at all times when outside of your circle. 

 

In case of inclement weather, we will NOT hold the program live at the library. If weather forces us to cancel an outdoor Wiggle Giggle Time we invite you to tune in on the Rye Free Reading Room's Facebook page at 10:15 am for a live streamed program.

DR. ISRAEL FINKELSTEIN:

RECONSTRUCTING THE HISTORY OF ANCIENT ISRAEL: THE BIBLE VS. ARCHAEOLOGY

Discovering the history of ancient Israel demands bridging the gap between biblical texts and archaeological findings. How should we balance the stories we read against the evidence uncovered in the field? How do we manage the tension between theology and history?

Dr. Finkelstein will discuss the rules he follows and the advantages and limitations of each kind of evidence in the context of an examination of the dichotomy in power and prosperity between the kingdoms of Israel and Judah, the rise of literacy in ancient Israel and when and why biblical texts were composed.

Dr. Israel Finkelstein is Jacob Alkow Professor of the Archaeology of Israel in the Bronze and Iron Ages at Tel Aviv University and director of the Megiddo Expedition.
