In 1985 Dr. Gordon Green wrote Getting Straight A's, a highly successful guide for high school and college students which has sold nearly 300,000 copies in two editions. He has now adapted the techniques in that book to show parents how they can help their younger children become top-notch students in elementary and junior high school.
With Helping Your Child to Learn, parents can help their youngsters plan a course of study and work effectively with teachers. Dr. Green tells parents how their youngsters can learn to complete assignments on time, take notes properly, and master the material presented in class. He also explains how to help them prepare for tests and score higher, and a special section is included on helping youngsters study properly and more effectively.
In addition, Dr. Green presents an entire section on mastering the three R's, including how to help children become more active readers so they will have a better grasp of the material they read in school. Explaining the basic tools of good writing, he shows what the child must do to become more proficient in writing themes, book reviews, and papers. Finally, he describes how parents can help their youngsters become more proficient in mathematics by covering basic material, such as arithmetic, fractions and decimals, weights and measures, algebra and geometry.
