Parental involvement in the learning process can make a crucial difference in a child’s life. Often, however, despite parents’ best intentions—they lack the skills to help their child beyond learning the school curriculum. Fifty Nifty Ways presents a different approach, and offers fifty proven techniques and principles on how parents and educators can help the child become not only learned, but also a life long learner. Rather than being a passive recipient of information—learning how to learn is a dynamic and exciting method in which children process knowledge into real understanding and become independent thinkers.
