Summary

The number one problem facing many high school students: They haven’t been taught how to learn. Because our current educational system focuses on test results, few students are deliberately taught about learning - about developing the particular mind-set and using the specific skills that can help them graduate with exemplary grades and an exemplary mind. 

In fact, learning is a skill that your student can easily make a part of his or her everyday life and use as a powerful tool for success, both inside and outside the classroom. All it takes is a mastery of research-proven strategies. Professor Michael Geisen, the 2008 National Teacher of the Year, has spent his teaching career showing thousands of students these and other skills. And with How to Become a SuperStar Student, 2nd Edition, he can give your own student the same vital skills that will carry him or her through high school, college, and well into the challenges of adult life. 

This highly engaging 12-lecture course is a commonsense guide to learning that addresses areas students have the most difficulty with - and that parents show the most concern about. Packed with advice, tips, tricks, and resources, this masterfully updated version of our highly popular study guide course has the power to transform your student’s education into a world-class learning experience.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

So Dissapointing..

This is the audio of a video, which is poorly because its supposed to be recorded for Audible only??? Also means the professor points out things on a screen that we cant see, just doesn’t look good on the Great courses and Audible. Ive listened to at least 25 great courses but this audio with all the background noises is more than annoying!

For high school students

Although there is a picture of a university student on the cover, this book is aimed at junior-high to high school level.
