Recent studies show that the average student retention rate is 15 percent and that America spends over $14 billion dollars annually to reteach these students. To remedy this alarming trend, Dr. Linda Wilson provides instructional strategies to help students not only learn better but also retain the information they are taught. When teachers incorporate the learning styles in planning and implementation, students will achieve real learning and 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, pre-service and inservice teachers, and community members, the book offers tried and true student learning opportunities.
Dr. Wilson captures her audience with a wealth of information with such a personal touch in how her creative activities compliment the research and give teachers and parents invaluable tools for learning. This book is like having a series of in-depth conversations with an educational expert.--Janice Pollard, director, Early Childhood Center, Collinsville Public Schools, Oklahoma
