School Success: The Inside Story.
Kline, Peter; Martel, Laurence D.
This workbook was written to help students learn better, study better, and do better in school. Chapter 1 provides an overview of the book. Chapter 2 focuses on five basic skills that can help readers become super students: goal setting, putting things in the right order, asking questions, finding out how you're doing, and discovering patterns. Chapter 3 concentrates on the first of the five basic skills, goal setting. Chapter 4 talks about how to reach the goals that have been set by using a flow chart and prioritizing daily activities. Chapter 5 explores the concept of feedback and chapter 6 focuses on questions and how to ask them. Chapter 7 considers test-taking and describes many different kinds of patterns that can be helpful in test-taking: determining the main points of structure, distinguishing between content and process, building the vocabulary needed to understand the subject, core concepts, comparing and contrasting, getting into the subject, and overlearning. Chapter 8 presents memory techniques to help readers develop a super memory. Chapter 9 explains differences between the left and the right brain, and how they can work together better. Chapter 10 helps readers figure out their own personal learning style, chapter 11 explains how to turn failures into successes, and chapter 12 focuses on time and time management. The final chapter looks at the important role dreams can play in one's life. (NB)
