A Powerful Resource to Help Kids Enjoy Academic Excellence


Studying, Test Taking, and Getting Good Grades

Susanna Palomares & Dianne Schilling

Here is a resource designed to just help students learn.  Each of this student activity book’s 11 units is entirely reproducible and can be used as a separate entity capable of standing alone. Generally, each page is also independently designed, with one concept, quiz, or activity per page.

If you have a specific concept you want to address, you may duplicate and distribute individual pages to the students. However, for greatest impact, either present the book in its entirety and encourage students to complete the activities in sequence, or, if you have limited copies, duplicate and assign the units in sequence.

The material in this book can be used in a variety of settings, from school to home, and with a single student or in small to large groups. Because of the nature of the content, and because the students are encouraged to personalize much of the material, the book will benefit low- and high-achievers as well as “mainstream” students.

The lessons in the book are written expressly for the students, so by all means allow them to work independently and at their own pace. You can facilitate this process by reading each chapter in advance and introducing the material to the students in your own words and with some of your own examples and reactions. If a chapter contains words or terms that you think might stymie your students, define and discuss these up front.
