National and state curriculum demand heavier amounts of content. But, teachers have no time or training for teaching the vital learning strategies and "life-skills" students need!                   "SOAR has been a Godsend to our family...You have no idea!  My son has not lost one assignment or forgotten anything at school since I set him up with your Binder System.  You really demonstrated how to simplify the organizational process and I am so grateful to have found something that finally works!" -- Paul K., Middle School Parent                     Is the education system setting students up for failure? Students are learning lots of new technical knowledge. But, very few are able to juggle their new knowledge, time, and tasks all at once. Organizing papers, managing time, managing tasks, taking tests, taking notes, studying, communicating, organizing at home... these are all HUGE functions in everyday school-life. Yet, schools don't teach any of it! Students struggle in school, not because of their lack of intelligence, but because they haven't been taught how to learn!             What is the missing link in education? HOW TO LEARN! Get your child ahead in school by giving them the proper skills needed to be a successful student and more importantly, a successful learner.The strategies in this book are appropriate for students in: upper elementary, middle school, high school, & college.                                Do you struggle with test-taking? Flip to page 92.

From the Author:

"This is a book that needs to be given to every student of any age and it needs to be a tool that every teacher uses in the classroom. I found the book to be fun and easy to read and I learned organizational skills that I can use in my office today." -- Bonnie Jo Davis, Author of children's books series, "Mrs. Morgan Rescues..."                   "Why didn't someone tell me about this before?" -- Stephen G., 8th Grade           "My eleven year old daughter has Aspergers and struggles with organization skills. She is very intelligent, but she was getting points off for turning in papers late because she wasn't organized. After her diagnosis the school now has a 504 plan for her and using the binder system in this book is part of that plan. Besides the binder system there is also lots of great tips for organizing your time. It discusses different intelligences which may help you to understand your children and/or yourself better. I really enjoyed this book. It is well written and easy to understand.They also have a great website with a free study kit you can download." -- Heather B-M, Mom of 5                   "This book will influence people to become more focused on their objectives in school or any other situation." -- Christopher M., College Senior

FROM THE AUTHORStop Struggling and start learning.  As a student, I always struggled to earn decent grades in elementary and high school. It took me hours to do homework, I did awful on tests, and generally felt plain "stupid." In college, however, I learned strategies that made studying so much easier and faster. All of a sudden, I was earning nearly all"A's" in college...and it was much easier than the mediocre grades I earned before! Since that point, I have made it my mission to help other students learn how to do homework more quickly, study more efficiently, and discover their lost confidence in school.   The SOAR Study Skills book is not just a roll of the dice! It is an accredited research based curriculum, with multiple case studies. Listen to REAL stories, direct from administrators of public and private schools across the country at: StudySkills.com/educators/case-studies.See the SOAR Research Basis at: StudySkills.com/educators/research-basis         Bring SOAR into the classroom! As the name suggests, our Multi-Media Teacher's Guide (MMTG) is filled with tools to engage students in study skills. The MMTG includes:
  • Done-for-you lesson plans. The ready-made lesson plans can be the basis of a study skills class, or embedded across the curriculum.
  • Multiple Assessments give you plenty of options for monitoring progress.
  • 240 done-for-you slides with interactive visuals for demonstration and instruction.
  • Clean, bright, colorful presentations to capture students' interest and reach your visual learners.
  • A lot of support! If you are unsure of how to teach study skills, we've incorporated background information and teaching tips for each step of the way.

All strategies are easy to integrate into an immediate routine. The four-step program builds upon each strategy to increase students' understanding and retention, while decreasing their homework and study time.

Reviews:

"I was getting C's and D's. Now I am getting A's and B's! I learned how to be organized and how to study...it has made such a difference!" - Katie H., 11th grade student

"I can't believe how much easier it is for me to keep my papers organized. Since I started using the Binder, I have not lost one assignment! My parents are so excited and I feel so much better about school. -Thank you!" - Michael Zabik, 9th grade student

"I have done much research over the last 2 years in an attempt to find "just the right thing" that I feel would be most beneficial with the at-risk students with whom I teach. Though my work with students has been helpful, I have always believed something more concrete that systematically teaches organization and study skills, would be more fruitful for students in the long term. I have concluded, FINALLY, that the SOAR Study Skills program is the best I have ever seen, offering the most comprehensive coverage of the needs of the students I service. The author provides sound rationale for her approach and plenty of info to answer questions, as the site is easy to navigate. The resources are simple/kid-friendly, illustrating each desired skill. As a teacher, having viewed and used numerous curriculums over the years, I am most excited about this discovery." - Rita L., School Success Educator

"This will make my school year run a lot smoother- thanks for all the wonderful ideas." - Michelle P., 4th Grade Teacher

"I loved the binder. What a simple but effective idea!" - Jennifer G., 5th Grade Teacher
