Building Bridgeways to School Success: Student Handbook Cover

"There is no more vexing problem in gifted education than the underachieving kid who is frittering away his or her potential to soar."

The critical difference between high achievement and underachievement is the knowledge and application of learning techniques, in addition to a positive attitude. Those are the goals of this highly interactive, four-part program.

At the core of the Building Bridgeways program is the link between student motivation and student knowledge of the techniques to succeed in school. The bridgeway they are building is that essential link. The student handbook is a rich mother lode of practical steps to student success. It tackles attitude first because the right attitude is the fundamental starting point. Once a child realizes that he or she can succeed in school and then wants to become successful in school, the remainder of the problem is simply mechanical. The first chapter of this book is packed with practical steps to aid children in examining their attitudes and then making the necessary adjustments to want to win at school. 

The next step is helping children to organize their physical environment and manage their use of time. As with every chapter, the techniques are specific—often step-by-step and illustrated with diagrams, drawings, or charts—and highly practical. The authors go so far as to suggest organizations for desktops, and they provide examples of time charts that work. They offer practical steps for effective power reading, note taking, research paper writing, employing mnemonic devices, managing stress, and preparing for taking tests.

This is a book that can help every child, even those who are achieving at a high level.
