  • Description

    Making a success of your upper school years is crucial to gaining entrance to university or securing your first job.  Many students need support and guidance to organise their workload with confidence.  Readers are encouraged to adopt a meta-cognitive approach to their studies: that is, they are helped to identify their preferred learning style, their learning strengths and weaknesses and then to adopt the strategies most appropriate to their needs.  This book is written in a dyslexia-friendly format.  A CD of the text is also included so that students can use text-to-speech programs to listen to the book. Topics covered include: 

    • memory and learning
    • organisation and time management
    • reading and understanding
    • taking and making notes
    • essay writing
    • coursework and portfolios
    • use of ICT
    • revision
    • examination technique
    • dealing with stress
    • options after school

    The authors, Christine Ostler and Frances Ward have taught in mainstream and independent secondary schools, and have extensive teaching experience, particularly in the field of study skills, learning and dyslexia support.  They have also been involved in the training of teachers, INSET courses and lecturing.

    3rd edition complete with CD which contains the complete book text for use by students with text reading software.
