Accessible, practical, and empowering, this book gives school professionals the tools to put students in charge of their own learning. Going beyond traditional “study skills” guides that focus on the mechanics of homework completion and test taking, the authors address the underlying psychological factors that influence academic success and lifelong learning. They provide step-by-step guidance and data-based interventions for helping each student develop a repertoire of problem-solving strategies in the areas of motivation, emotional responses to learning, behavior, time management, organization, memory, reading, writing, math, and more. In a large-size format to facilitate photocopying, the volume includes dozens of reproducible handouts and forms.
