A crowd of students, parents and teachers gathered in the Wapakoneta Performing Arts Center Tuesday night to listen to Bruce Boguski, a renowned motivational speaker and author who spoke to the audience about techniques they can use to become “peak performers” in the classroom and in life.
At the free seminar, Boguski discussed his book, “The Testing Zone,” which provides methods to help students increase their test scores by improving memory and retention, increasing creativity and learning how to relax in pressure situations.
The idea for the book sprang from Boguski’s diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) at age 13, which hindered his ability to perform well on tests.
“I had an idea years ago to help students that were as helpless as me at taking tests,” Boguski told the crowd. “I wanted to help them become peak performers, so I took the techniques world class athletes use to relax and calm down and put it in this book for students to use when taking exams.”
