THE SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR SCHOOL SUCCESS
By Ron Shumsky, Susan M. Islascox, and Rob Bell. Use the brain’s ten "built-in apps" to teach kids how to sharpen attention, battle boredom, build mental muscle, and ultimately succeed in school and life. Apps are given clever names like the Pizza Cutter (slicing work down to size) and the Site Selector (focusing attention), and struggling students as well as academic all-stars will benefit from the lively tone, step-by-step directions, helpful examples, and targeted practice exercises. Includes a guide for using the book as well as six reproducible activities that are also available online. Grades 5–8. Index. Free Spirit. 154 pages. ©2014.
