Becoming better learners requires both time and patience. It requires working through frustration and learning strategies to employ so as not to give up when learning gets hard or complicated. Students need to be able to take what they know about learning in one context and apply it in an unfamiliar way or new circumstance. And they have to be able to learn from one another and collaborate to bring about successful outcomes. This book gives teachers the winning attitudes and strategies to cause all students to become willing and able lifetime learners.
