This book offers practical strategies to help students learn how to learn and process information in ways that more closely match how they are being tested. The ideas and strategies presented here will help learners transfer what they know from their own natural learning style into useful forms for test-taking.Teachers, reading specialists, administrators, staff developers, special education teachers, and parents who work with elementary and middle-school-age children will learn how early detection of visual skill problems can save students years of struggle in school. Also explored are methods for linking visual skill development to vocabulary mastery and turning students into super spellers, math-fact masters, and overall effective learners. These strategies aim to give newfound hope to struggling students who want to raise their grades, and to give teachers who want to raise test scores to meet higher standards the answers they have been looking for.
