Academic Support at Bodwell
Academic supports are programs and strategies that are used to increase the academic achievement of students. Every Bodwell student gains access to a strong and experienced network of resources to help them prepare for their academic future.
What do we do at Bodwell?
At Bodwell, true academic support means addressing all the needs of our students, so that they can excel as they strive towards their goals. For us, this means that we prioritize open and consistent communications between parents, students, counsellors, and teaching staff, while also ensuring that the right resources are available at the right time for each of our students. If a student's goals require additional resources beyond the campus, we will step up to find and facilitate those connections for them.
Research shows that:
- Extra help-opportunities provide a path towards success.
- Students respond if they feel they have a reasonable chance of succeeding through extra work.
- It can provide motivation, personal individual attention, direct instruction, and error correction.
- It is best when taking a step-based approach (providing corrective feedback on each step of a question or problem).
