Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Author: Oskar Cymerman
YOU CAN LEARN ANYTHING.
But... You need to know how to learn. This book will show you how.
"Crush School" is a guide to learning. In the book, Oskar uses humor, classroom examples, and life situations to explain how to help students become mindful learners. He uses brain science to explain why certain strategies work and others do not. "Crush School" feels as though the author is talking to you. Each chapter is short and straight to the point.
The book is not designed to be read from beginning to end. It is best used by skipping around to the strategies you need right now. You don't have to suffer through 200 pages of Blah before you get to the useful stuff, because this book is full of it.
