Book Title: Fostering Independent Learning: Practical Strategies to Promote Student Success (The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series)
Publisher: The Guilford Press
Author: Virginia Smith Harvey
Accessible, practical, and empowering, this book gives school professionals the tools to put students in charge of their own learning. Going beyond traditional "study skills" guides that focus on the mechanics of homework completion and test taking, the authors address the underlying psychological factors that influence academic success and lifelong learning. They provide step-by-step guidance and data-based interventions for helping each student develop a repertoire of problem-solving strategies in the areas of motivation, emotional responses to learning, behavior, time management, organization, memory, reading, writing, math, and more. In a large-size format with lay-flat binding to facilitate photocopying, the volume includes dozens of reproducible handouts and forms.
This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series, edited by T. Chris Riley-Tillman.
