An Interview With The Author (Reality Productions Staff with Renee Molllan-Masters,M.A.)
Reality Productions: What kind of students find your book helpful?
Ms. Mollan-Masters: About 90% of all college students. Most students today do not have a clue about how to learn in long-term memory. They have spent their whole life memorizing which is really short-term memory learning. The YOU ARE SMARTER THAN YOU THINK book will show students how they learn best and then show them how to use this information to learn in long-term memory.
Reality Productions: Doesn't it take longer to get information into long-term memeory than it does to just memorize it?
Ms. Mollan-Masters: No. Our studies show consistanly that when you use your brain the way it was designed, you will learn faster - in about one-third less time. It will also help the student answer essay questions and tough multiple choice questions. If they need to apply the information they have learned, this learning system will also help them with that.
Rality Productions: What about old learners, can it help them too?
Ms.Mollan-Masters: Yes. We come into this world with gifts and those gifts stay with us our whole life unless there is some kind brain damage. The YOU ARE SMARTER THAN YOU THINK book will give mature returning students the courage they may be lacking. This book is very user friendly. It takes you step by step through the process. Returning students tell me that it gave them the boost they needed to believe in themselves again and succeed.
Reality Productions: What one thing would you like to tell potential buyers?
Ms. Mollan-Mollan: The truth is we are a lot smarter than we think. It is also true that students at the college and university level are dropping out at record numbers. Why? One reason is that students today have never learned how to learn. It is not a difficult task. If you want to be a success then you will want to read and use the YOU ARE SMARTER THAN YOU THINK book.
Thank youAbout the Author:
Renee Mollan-Masters has been interested in the learning process for much of her life. She earned her Master's Degree in Speech Pathology from California State University, Fullerton. While serving as speech pathologist for the Fountain Valley School District, she developed a reading perception lab, which became a model program for the state of California. Later, Renee was in private practice in speech patholoy for a number of years.
In 1987 Renee discovered the work of Dr. Howard Gardner and from this research and her knowlege of lanuage processing developed the YOU ARE SMARTER THAN YOU THINK learning system. Soon after this she began teaching the YOU ARE SMARTER THAN YOU THINK system to college students all over Southern California. In 1992 the first edition of YOU ARE SMARTER THAN YOU THINK book was published. Today this learning system is used by colleges and universities nationally.
Renee's hope is that the YOU ARE SMARTER THAN YOU THINK learning system will make education a more equitable and worthwhile experience for students everywhere.
