An Instructional Handbook for Teaching K–12 Students How to Study, Learn, and Take Tests
When academic development slows at fourth or fifth grade, it’s usually because students do not know how to learn. This handbook shows you how to identify ineffective learning strategies and what to do about them. It presents clear, step-by-step instructional plans, “scripted” to ensure easy implementation by both novice and experienced teachers. You’ll find blueprints for improving study skills, writing, reading comprehension, note taking, listening, time management, organization, test taking, test anxiety, attention, concentration, and motivation. Virtually everything you need to raise student performance is within the covers of this book—including supporting materials such as reproducibles, worksheets, sample tests, a daily calendar, and study plans. If your students are underperforming, this handbook is your next step.
Strategies for Academic Success is included in the SMALSI Child and Teen Kits and is also sold separately. It’s available in print and online formats. The online version is accessible through the WPS Online Evaluation System (registration required).
