Students can change rapidly. Just entering a different room they may feel happier and more successful because they respond instantly to changed conditions. The same students may be bored and uncooperative, and then learn zestfully. The most powerful influence available to teachers is students' opinion of each other. Properly applied, it inspires them to do better in all ways, with results evident in a couple weeks, K-12. They're more cooperative, supportive, gain firm knowledge hourly, and are proud of their accomplishments. National legislation ordering schools to change is an unwanted distraction. Teachers instead need methods easy to apply that work quickly and obviously. With seven key elements and fifty-four methods, this book explains • How current instruction insures superficial learning • Easy changes that increase long-term mastery • How the axiom "Practice makes perfect" applies to learning • How to generate pride with hourly success and turn it into a body of knowledge • The absolute fastest way to get mutual support and harmony • How to make learning a team sport that includes everyone • How to solve the national problem of assessing learning objectively. • How to discipline without alienating • How students remember the most for the longest time
