How students really learn: instructional strategies that work
Recent studies show that the average student retention rate is 15 percent and that America spends more than $14 billion annually to reteach these students. To remedy this alarming trend, Linda Henshall Wilson provides instructional strategies to help students not only learn better but also retain the information they are taught. When teachers incorporate learning styles in planning and implementation, students achieve real learning and will never be bored again. How Students Really Learn includes kinesthetic, auditory, and visual learning opportunities for students in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies, as well as steps to create assessment strategies and tips on how to implement them. For parents, school administrators, preservice and inservice teachers, and community members, this book offers tried and true student learning opportunities. Book jacket.
