Learning Strategies - A Foundation for Lifelong Learning© is a workbook designed to teach students learning strategies that help them develop the skills they need to succeed in both school and life.

It is intended to assist teachers, tutors or parents. Each chapter has three or more lesson plans or handouts. The lesson plans relate directly to the material in the workbook. They may be presented sequentially or as they correspond to ongoing course material. They are generic in content, and can therefore be integrated into almost all school subjects.

The lessons outlined in this guide can be used both with large and small groups, and in a one-on-one learning situation. Certain skills may require more practice time and individual needs may require some modifications to the plans.

If students develop a clear-cut way to organize their thoughts or information and have some simple tools to help them remember required materials, they will have a better chance of meeting their goals for academic success. Our aim is to help students gain confidence in themselves as lifelong learners. We believe the Learning Strategies Workbook and will help accomplish this goal.

We have every confidence that students will benefit from using the Learning Strategies© program. If you are not satisfied, we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee.
