A Few Good Men

A milkman has two empty jugs: a three gallon jug and a five gallon jug. How can he measure exactly one gallon without wasting any milk?
  1. Fill the 3 gallon jug
  2. Pour the milk from the 3 gallon jug into the 5 gallon jug. The 3 gallon jug is now empty and the 5 gallon jug has 3 gallons in it (and can hold 2 more gallons)
  3. Fill the 3 gallon jug again
  4. Pour milk from the 3 gallon jug into the 5 gallon jug until it is full. Since the 5 gallon jug can only hold 2 more gallons, you will pour 2 gallons into the 5 gallon jug, leaving exactly 1 gallon of milk left in the 3 gallon jug

Give Your Kids The Gift of an
Easy and Effortless "Master Memory" This Summer

Dear Academy Parents,

Learning, memorizing, and recalling academic facts, formulas and concepts doesn't have to be stressful or require endless repetition or feel like a brute force exercise.

There is a better, easier (dare I say "fun"?!) way to store and recall information through using specific memory technologies.

After 20 years of teaching and being involved in education, I'm still mystified as to why these technologies are still almost "secrets" in the public schools.

These Master Memory technologies can be an incredible gift for your children; Watch their confidence grow as they astound their friends, your family, and teachers with their incredible ability to quickly and effortlessly store and recall information.
"I can't believe how easy this is."
- Savannah O'Leary, Age 8
After a 5 minute session where she used the Classical Mind Palace technique to memorize the first 20 U.S. Presidents in order


I'm excited to offer a new "near to my heart" online course beginning late November. 
This will be a 5 week program during which I will introduce, challenge, and review some astounding memory techniques which will enable the students to easily and (sort of) effortlessly store and recall anything that they need for both academic and non-academic success and fluidity. (SPOILER: There is effort involved but it's not "brute force" repetition effort; it's "smart" effort!)
Week 1:



Unlike some (very valuable!) memory courses where the students spend time memorizing a specific body of knowledge, the focus of this course will be to give them the tools to use in whatever situation they find themselves in the future, where they need or want to memorize and recall information. 

They'll then be able to apply these tools to a wide range of topics including:
  • Dates and Chronology
  • Historical identifications
  • Math facts and formulas
  • Quotes
  • Books and authors
  • Historical concepts
  • Scientific facts and concepts
  • Grammar rules
  • English vocabulary
  • Foreign vocabulary
  • Public speaking - poetry, dramatic passages, speeches and quotes
Why learn these Master Memory Techniques?

We adults know how much easier our academic lives would have been had we been able to develop a near photographic memory.

Think about the time you spent studying, drilling, repeating to "lock in" those academic facts and concepts (that you then forgot later because you never REALLY made them meaningful or relevant to you).

Think about how amazing it would have been to have had access to specific Memory Technologies which could UNLOCK your ability to store and recall information more effortlessly.

You know your child/student better than I do, but some of the benefits that I SEE becoming available to your children immediately by having access to these tools are:
  • Built in confidence about learning new topics
  • Massively reduced time (and stress) in learning new information
  • Pride in their impressive mental ability
  • Not being intimidated about studying/learning new topics
  • Increased confidence about taking on rich content careers (academia, leadership, medicine, law, clergy)
  • Increased performance/less stress during preparation for high stakes tests or exams
  • Improved and impressive vocabulary
  • Greater confidence/success in job application/college interview processes
  • Easier to learn/master a foreign language
  • Life-long skill for use in academic, non-academic settings
  • Greater ability to adapt to academic, non-academic changes and challenges quickly
  • Greater facility to store and recall character building passages (Bible, poetry, inspirational/motivational quotes)

NY Times Best Seller - Moonwalking With Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything
So what is this course going to cover? How is it going to deliver on that PRETTY BIG Promise that I'm making?

During the 5 weeks, I'm going to cover the following Memory Mastery Tools and Strategies:
  1. Memory Objects
  2. "Packing the Objects" - Linking and Storytelling
  3. The Classical Mind Palace - The Oldest Memory Trick Ever Invented
  4. Memory Pegs
  5. Number Images and Linking: Storing and Recalling Dates/Statistics
  6. Moonwalking with Einstein: Phonetic Numbers and Number Images
Bonus Lessons:
  • Chunking and Meaning
  • M.I.M.I: Acronyms/Acrostics/Mnemonics
  • "Is Beethoven Hans or Kristoff from Frozen?": Using Familiar Concepts to lock in Unfamiliar knowledge
  • Putting Popular Culture to Use: Using Songs and Poems to learn and remember OTHER Stuff

Class Structure

My plan is to enable the students to apply the new memory "technology" that they learn each week to the topics that they are ALREADY studying and working with, so this can be seen as a COMPLEMENT to existing studies rather than something else to make room for.

Weekly Structure
Monday Video Lesson - Weekly Challenge
Daily Expert Tip - Around That Week's Technology
Online Sandbox - for Practice and Sharing Projects
Weekly Project (Submit by Video or In Writing - Evidence of Success)
Mobile "App" for reminders/practice away from home
I will introduce a new Memory Technique via video lesson on Monday each week.

The students will have the opportunity to review the video lesson as much as desired and on their own schedule.

They will confirm that they have completed the lesson and complete a "review" exercise to confirm that they understand the technique.

They will then choose from a list of memory projects on which to apply the new technique.

(This is where the class as a COMPLEMENT rather than extra work to be "fit in" comes in.) The students can suggest their own list of projects if you or they would rather apply the memory technique to content/concepts that you are already working on.

Each day that week, the student will receive an email with a tip or challenge to help them strengthen their confidence and competence with the specific memory technique.

There is an online "Sandbox" that the students can visit to sharpen their skills and share ideas and projects with other students to further develop their Master Memory abilities.

At the end of each week, the students will be asked to share evidence of their success in using the week's Memory Technique in storing and recalling specific facts (again from a list of suggested projects or from something from their existing studies).

NOTE: These Memory Techniques are not meant to have the student inside staring at a computer during the summer. After the initial video lesson and review (10-20 minutes), the students will be working to practice and develop their skill MENTALLY - meaning whereever they happen to be...whether out on errands, at an activity, or just hanging out outside.

Speaking from my experience as a history student and teacher (and a homeschool parent), I have been astounded at both how impactful these strategies can be and how absent the "learning how to learn" is from traditional education.  I have been delighted with the results when I share these technologies with students and I have heard time after time from both parents and students how grateful they have been to been given these memory "secrets"...which shouldn't be secrets after all!

If you're interested, please click the "Start Your Adventure" button and you can access the Memory Master course and all of the other activities in the Academy.

If you have questions that you'd like answered, please email me at Frazier@FortHuntParent.com and I'll both answer them and add them to the course FAQs.

Thanks,

Unlock Your Student's Inner Entrepreneur!

Dear Academy Parents,

A few thoughts about youth entrepreneurship:
-- 3 out of 4 of young people under the age of 18 report high levels of interest in starting their own business.

-- College admissions offices say that entrepreneurial experience in middle school and high school is "highly compelling" when evaluating college applications.

-- "Boring" and "Not Relevant to my life" are the two most common reasons that students disconnect and under achieve at school

I've had the pleasure of working with/supporting/coaching thousands of small business owners and entrepreneurs over the past 15 years and working with YOUNG (teen) entrepreneurs for 5 years before that.

I believe VERY STRONGLY in the idea that the BEST TIME to get started with an entrepreneurial idea is when you're young and the stakes (and financial obligations) are low and you haven't YET collected all of the baggage that you'll spend the rest of your life trying to offload.

My philosophy (for young entrepreneurs) is "Think Big. Start Small. Right Now."

I have crafted a few different approaches to help students move from WHERE THEY ARE to the NEXT LEVEL in their entrepreneurial journey.

They are:
1) LEVEL 1 - "Mind Your Own Business, Kid": Turning Your Interests/Passions into Your First Business

2) LEVEL 2 - Taking Your Existing Business to the Next Level: Finding and maximizing the growth potential in your CURRENT business

3) PURE Entrepreneurship: Combining OTHER PEOPLE's Talents, Interests, Experience to Create A Business

4) JointVenturePreneuring - Finding Income Opportunities in Other People's Businesses

Join me for a workshop where I step through the key elements in each of these levels with a concentration on Level #1 and Level #2 for students who have an interest that they'd like to turn into a business AND students who have a business but who would like to take it to the next level!

Parents and students welcome - 4th grade and up please! (I will be talking about businesses ranging from lemonade stands and pet walking to web application design - the fundamental principles run through all of them!)

If you have questions that you'd like answered, please email me at Frazier@FortHuntParent.com and I'll both answer them and add them to the course FAQs.

Thanks,

Frazier O'leary

I first learned HTML when I was teaching high school in Arlington, VA in 1997.  I quickly got excited about teaching my students to take a blank (computer) page and create whatever they wanted to out of it, and share their knowledge/ideas/businesses with the world.  I created this HTML 101 class for my daughter, Savannah, so she could feel that same sort of power.  My wife and I (well, mostly my wife) homeschool (or "world"school) our 10 year old daughter and our 7 year old son in Alexandria, VA.

Introduction

I need an introduction to the Manager or Sales Manager of a local Harley-Davidson dealership, either Patriot in Fairfax or Bull Run Harley in Manassas.

There are also dealerships in PG County but would prefer Fairfax or Manassas.

I want to conduct a photo shoot for the cover of a client's upcoming book, Riding QuickBooks to The Promised Land, which will feature him astride a Big Hog.

In return for the dealer's participation, I will publish a press release and also produce the book launch event at their dealership with lots of publicity support.

Thanks for everyone's help!

Referral

Who do you know that is a real estate agent that I should be talking to right now about an opportunity with the Greetings Virginia Sales Network?

I just hired 2 more Inside Sales Agents (each with a huge record of success) that will start on Dec 1 and then our team will then have 5 high performance ISAs setting 75% of our agent's appointments.

We are generating more opportunity than we can handle.

BTW: we also have a full service operations department that allows for our agents (on the team) to never have to write an offer, attend a home inspection, walk through, or closing (unless they choose to), and we offer 4 client appreciation events each year for our agents to invite their sphere of influence to and more...

We believe that our community's middle schoolers need a safe, supervised place to go after school to connect with each other and with dynamic, enriching, engaging activities. Fort Hunt Oasis is a third place - between school and home - with engaging activities like video gaming, music, games, competitions, etc. in a positive, supervised, non-denominational environment.
