Executive functioning is the new hot topic, and for good reason -- we're discovering now that these skills are the bedrock for learning. Interventions for executive skills are crucial for almost all struggling students, and the authors here present some complex concepts in ways that are both easy to understand and easy to apply in the real world. Working in a high school, I've paired this with their other recent book on coaching students with executive skills deficits, and I feel that I'm becoming a much better professional as a result.Was this review helpful?

I recommend Sugar's book because it deals directly with educational reality instead of outdated educational theory. 95% of all parents do not know what is really happening in this country, and those who get a wake-up call are able to take action and become victors,and those that are fast asleep become victims. Great News: The SMARTGRADES School notebooks place the new learning technology directly into the hands of all students. Brava.
