Integrating powerful learning skills and strategies into daily instruction

For the majority of students, the skills and work habits crucial to successful learning are not in place when they arrive at the school door. These skills must be explicitly taught by teachers who recognize the unique learning styles, preferences, and interests of their students.

Ready, Set, Learn focuses on the importance of encouraging students to set their own learning goals and persevere to achieve them. It illustrates ways in which every lesson can be an opportunity for students to develop the skills and strategies they need in order to learn. Along with organizers, prompts, and specific activities, this timely book presents new ways to plan lessons that explicitly teach key learning skills, including organization, collaboration, communication, independence, memory, and initiative. This remarkable book shows how incorporating learning strategies into everyday work will improve students achievement, and create responsible, independent learners.

Reviews

their knowledge." - Professionally Speaking
