Thinking Organized for Parents and Children

Thinking Organized for Parents and Children

Rhona Gordon has seen firsthand how difficult school can be for many students. Some children have formal diagnoses such as ADD or ADHD, others have simply been labeled lazy, and still others say they "just don't care". Gordon disagrees, "I have never met a student who does not want to succeed in school. Many kids just don't know how to accomplish it."
To teach children new strategies that will help them better plan and complete everyday tasks without stress, Gordon developed the Thinking Organized approach. After helping hundreds of students in her private practice, she compiled her time-tested strategies into a book. Thinking Organized For Parents and Children offers six hands-on planning tools: organization of materials, time management, study skills, memory tools, note-taking, and written language. Each chapter is a step-by-step guide for parents and their children to learn and practice these key skills, which give students the tools to independently manage their personal and academic obligations, laying the groundwork for a successful life. Includes helpful glossary of terms, extensive, detailed resource section.

That sounds like a good book. All students need to have a good toolbox of those skills to carry them through school and, later, work.
