Our education system focuses squarely on standardized test scores, leaving many teachers with little time to teach the most valuable lesson of all: how to learn. In the rush to memorize facts and figures, dates and names, students aren't developing the skills necessary to thrive in the world when there's no longer an answer sheet lined with bubbles to fill in. This highly engaging course gives your student the building blocks to academic success using research-proven strategies. They will learn to identify their learning style and tap into its strengths, to take notes effectively and efficiently, to harness the power of critical and creative thinking to solve problems, and to manage their time so they can balance homework, projects, studying, and their hobbies. This commonsense guide to learning is taught by 2008 National Teacher of the Year Michael Geisen, who has taught thousands of students the vital skills that will carry them through high school, college, and the challenges of adult life. It's packed with advice, tips, tricks, and resources that will transform your student's education and motivate them to succeed. The final six lessons of this course are for parents of middle- and high-school students. It covers research-based strategies for helping your child with homework, effectively communicating with teachers, preparing your child for college, and raising your child to be someone who eagerly engages with challenging learning material.
