HELPING STUDENTS THINK & DO BETTER IN SCHOOL & IN LIFE
Here's another intellectual masterpiece from Dilip Mukerjea!
For more than six months, & in close collaboration with me, Dilip Mukerjea has developed a series of powerful tools & strategies to help students think & do better in school & in life.
All the tools & strategies are already embodied in his 'SuperBrain Study Skills' seminars for secondary schools.
He has also created a 'SuperBrain Study Skills' companion workbook to be used in conjunction with the seminars.
Currently, he is working on another version of seminar as well as companion workbook specifically targeted at primary school students.
The foregoing snapshot is just one of the tools. In this case, it's a goal setting questionnaire with a big picture view.
Our research has demonstrated that goal setting holds the first of ten keys to high-performing student achievement. For a student, it helps him or her to:
- set direction;
- focus attention;
- direct energy;
- stretch potential, & more importantly,
- activate the brain's reticular activating system (RAS)! [Just imagine a Tomahawk cruise missile with its computerised guidance system!]
