Ready, Set, Learn

Integrating powerful learning skills and strategies into daily instruction


For the majority of students, the skills and work habits crucial to successful learning are not in place when they arrive at the school door; these skills must be explicitly taught by teachers who recognise the unique learning styles, preferences, and interests of their students. Ready, Set, Learn focuses on the importance of encouraging students to set their own learning goals and persevere to achieve them. It illustrates ways in which every lesson can be an opportunity for students to develop the skills and strategies they need in order to learn. Along with organisers, prompts, and specific activities, this timely book presents new ways to plan lessons that teach key learning skills, including organisation, collaboration, communication, independence, memory, and initiative. This remarkable book shows how incorporating learning strategies into everyday work will improve students’ achievement, and create responsible, independent learners.
