First Year Academy

Are you transferring to a 4-year school? Wake Tech’s First Year Academy (FYA) is dedicated to promoting student success by teaching strategies that help students achieve their educational goals. The e-newsletter will contain “fun facts” by our dedicated faculty as well as submissions from students.


FYA Fun Fact – Submitted by Carter B. Minter, Associate in Engineering (AE) Student:

Need a reading strategy? Try this one from a fellow student who used it in medical school.
We all recognize the natural tendency for our minds to drift as we read dense, academic material. Our attention and input for our brain can’t be sustained for very long, but you can grow this ability easily! The process is simple. Begin working, reading, or studying your notes. The moment you begin to read or acquire whatever knowledge it is that you’re using, start your timer. When you notice your attention waning or shifting, stop studying, note the time you sustained your attention and do something enjoyable for 5 to 10 minutes. Now, resume studying and wait until you realize you’re losing your focus. As you continue to do this wave form study technique, you’re time and focus will increase in both effectiveness and intensity rapidly.  It is my hope that by teaching this wonderful method, that perfectly complements how the brain absorbs and stores knowledge, I may be able to help my fellow students to succeed.
