By using the strategies in this book, you will learn how to easily succeed in writing and study skills throughout school, as well as in life. As you learn how to more easily take notes, write paragraphs and essays, and create study guides, you strengthen your learning skills, inherently becoming a better thinker.
Writing is the Doing Part of Thinking
You can’t write without thinking. The very act of writing forces you to think. The forms in this book help you write notes and organize ideas on a page. Gone are the days of staring at a blank piece of paper. Writing is much easier when you have fill-in-the-blank templates.
How Soon Will I Start Seeing Progress?
Students typically start seeing progress within three weeks. The more you engage in the strategies, the faster you will see progress.
These brain-based techniques help your brain form new neuro-connections while you write and study. The more neuro-connections you make, the easier learning and studying becomes.
