From Barnes & NobleLearning Outside the Lines was written by two students who triumphed over an education system hostile to their learning problems -- but only after years of misunderstanding, mislabeling, and failure. This book is their effort to help other LD kids get through school successfully, by learning how to learn in a radical new way.
The authors provide a step-by-step approach to reading, writing, and test taking, along with their own deeply moving stories and some hints on how to live "a life less ordinary." Always, their advice is practical and student-friendly. Once you've written a paper, for example:
"This is the final step. You have worked your ass off, and you have a brilliant paper in front of you. To get the brilliant grade you deserve, however, you have to do the necessary proofreading to appease the narrow minds of professors who believe spelling, grammar, and all that linear stuff are of equal importance with content. That means grammar and spelling time. This is what we do when we're on the home stretch. Get help!"
Frank, clear, and supportive, Learning Outside the Lines offers help and inspiration to any student with a learning disability.
