Categories: Study Skills
Format: Workbook
Call Number: S7805

Summary: The skills explored in this book are often neglected in the educational system; therefore, they may never be taught at all. Students are often told that they need to use their time more wisely, to take better notes, to do their homework, to do better on tests; but they are not often told how to do these things.  Thinking Smarter allows students to assess their learning styles and to determine which techniques work best for them.  Thinking Smarter is a cooperative learning program.  Students work in groups of three or four to solve problems, brainstorm ideas, think logically, discuss strategies, draw conclusions and then they share their solutions with the entire class.
