Learning is a life-long process. The "brain power" one applies to any task is critical, and knowing how to attack a learning activity is the first step to understanding its content. In order to improve performance in school -- and in life -- a person must be committed to defining and pursuing goals actively and with commitment. Once an individual experiences success and the wonderful feelings of self-confidence and pride that follow, the task of learning becomes easier. This book contains ideas, suggestions, and strategies to help everyone achieve that success. Intended for students, teachers, and parents, this revised edition of Learning to Learn is designed to be used as an interactive workbook for self-improvement. Filled with practical hints, methods, tips, procedures, resources, and tools, this is a book which will help any learner succeed. Care has been taken to omit any "educational jargon" and to present the material in a unique, straightforward manner. Useful key concepts are presented with a positive attitude and a sense of humor. From the classroom to the workplace, in all content areas, the need to learn never ends. Anyone who wants to "learn how to learn" will benefit from the wealth of activities in this engaging, accessible resource. Book jacket.
