Carnegie Corner

Are you stressed out? Do you loose focus when everything seems to pile up in your head? Would you like this to go away and make your life easier and stress free?

Great News! In Mr. Dale Carnegie’s, Breaking The Worry Habit Before It Breaks You!, principle number five tells us: Decide just how much anxiety a thing may be worth and refuse to give it more! When stress and worry seem to pile up, our thoughts become cloudy and we are unable to focus on what we need to get done.


For example, let’s say you are worried about a family/home situation and you can’t seem to get your 80 activities during the week because you are constantly worrying about life at home. Now you have friends, family, and people at school who are expecting more of you than you think you are capable of. This would be the moment to:


1. STOP

2. Decide how much time/effort to give to this thing

3. Move on!


A lot of times, stress and worry can weigh us down. So when you are feeling overwhelmed, set a stopwatch for the amount of time you give to the thing you’re worrying about. When the beeper goes off, get to work! After that, you will be more able and willing to move on to the next thing!

If your grade is between 50-60%, half of the incorrect questions will be
given.
If your grade is above 60%, all (non-true/false) incorrect questions will
be given.

Retakes
Please G-Chat your teacher to check quizzes and indicate the class
so there is a running list
A free retake will be given if your quiz grades are 50% or higher.
Any other retake will be given only if notes are shown to the teacher.
After second retake, teacher will ask learner to watch the lecture
again.
After third retake, teacher will reset the section.

Students will produce notes or another way of showing work
before asking for help or they will be sent back to the lecture

The best time to ask for help is during homework, topic test reviews
and cumulative final review. NOT during quizzes, tests, or finals

Please ask learning coach in the room you are in for help.

The room your cohort is assigned to is the room you are
expected to be in while you are at Relevant Academy.

Learner's Corner: Greg Y

My name is Greg, and I'm a relaxed guy that enjoys making art. Ive been riding quads and dirt bikes since I was little. Always been a fantastic pool shot, I've been playing since I was 3. I like to watch a lot of movies, I'm a huge movie buff, I'd rather watch movies that TV. I like to keep things simple and easy for the most part, but eventually i want to go spend a few months in Ireland. After graduating from Relevant Academy I plan on working for awhile and saving up money. I want to open an old style pool hall here in Charlotte, I also want to get my barber license to cut hair. The world is full of possibilities, you never know where the day will take you when you step out your front door.
